It has been a busy week preparing for the boys to come home, but I have also done some sewing. I added another row to my basket weave afghan - soon to be completed and shown!!! I am a bit further along with my strawberry candle mat and I have been sewing on a hexagon quilt that I have started. I will show that to you soon in a separate blog. Have a wonderful Friday and a relaxing weekend.

Well, I have been very busy sewing the drapes for my sitting room and dining room. Here is a picture of the sitting room drapes!!! I just have to hem the ones in the dining room and then I will post a picture of them too. I have sewn a total of 44 yards of fabric for them. The drapes are lined, and have a drop and a half per curtain!! I used pleater tape and hooks because I wanted a more formal look to the drapes. Did I have a problem finding rings to hang them on!!! Rings commonly have little spring clips on them now. I could only find a ring with a tiny ring on them for $30.00 for 10 from a very overpriced store. So, that being said, my handy husband took the little clips off, leaving the wire circle. It works wonderfully. Oh well, I better get back to that horrible hemming job awaiting me. I hand hemmed the front fabric because I hate the line at the bottom from the sewing machine. I did machine the hem of the lining fabric though.
Have a good day and I will chat again soon.

I wish you all a happy month with some of the luck of the Irish sprinkled among your days. Have a good one!! Until next time!
