I would like to say I'm sewing up a storm...but I'm not. I managed to get these curtains done before we had visitors come for Easter. That's about all of the sewing I've done in the past little while. (Remember my post from a while back...? So I didn't go black and white, but did go geometric and simple)
The fabric is this navy blue wax resist dyed loveliness that my husband brought back for me from Ghana, way back in January. It's only taken 19 years for him to learn what I really want as a souvenir:)
I left the side edges raw (they even wax resist dyed the name and some other things on the side) and then simply used a rolled hem for the top and bottom. I didn't want to waist any of the fabric by hemming too much. As I was cutting it out to the measurements, last minute I remembered to make sure that the circles would line up from panel to panel...that was a close call. I'm kind of loving how they look. Simple, yet stunning to look at. And they are simply hung with little clips on a simple rod.
As for what has been keeping me busy, besides chauffeuring my kids around, on the days it is nice outside...I love Spring...I've been outside discovering what our flowerbeds have to offer. Since we bought this house and moved in July 1st, what blooms in Spring is a nice surprise. Every day it seems like it is something new, awakening to the warm sunshine that has become more the norm.
So here are some of the surprised for your enjoyment.
One night a couple of weeks ago, there was a chorus of probably 50-80 of these guys in our little pond...it was loud! The result is now a ton of tadpoles swimming around. The girls are having fun with daily observations...got to love backyard biology!
And this lovely sight is from a drive on Easter around a local park. How many turtles can you count?
