I'm still here, but not much sewing going on! I just haven't been feeling the vibe lately. You know how it is. Which is a shame, because about 2 weeks ago I started a "quick" spring jacket... it's almost done. Plus I've got Tim's shirt to finish. *sigh* I've been reading all the blogs, but haven't been commenting much.
Actually, I have been doing some sewing research.... home dec! We have a new fireplace hearth and some new living room furniture, so the drapes need some sprucing up. I am tired of the poly "silk-look" drapes we've had for several years. I was originally thinking of replacing them with a different color of silk dupioni, but then I found this fabric and fell in l-o-v-e. It's actually from Pottery Barn. Fashion Fabrics Club sold it for a while, but unfortunately I wasn't quick enough for their super low price. Thankfully I found it at House Fabric for a reasonable price. I read all about how to make pinch-pleat drapes when I thought I would use dupioni, but now that I have this medium-weight cotton woven print, I'm thinking I should do something else, like an inverted pleat. Riveting, I know! I have a few books on hold at the library that will help. I'll keep you posted...
