Let The Sun Shine

Because it won’t wake us up at 6am anymore! My most recent finished product is a set of curtains for our bedroom. One of our windows faces due east, and as summer sneaks up on us the light keeps waking me up earlier and earlier. But no longer!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fabric was basic quilting cotton from Joann’s. We don’t have much in the way of fabric stores nearby, and this does the job. There was no pattern used, I just collected some tips from other curtain patterns and then went off on my own. I think they turned out nicely considering my lack of experience.

These were made using my Singer Touch N Sew 603E. This machine was my great-great aunt’s, and is at least 60 years old, but it still works like a dream. I hope this machine never dies. I don’t know what I’d do without it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In my spare time the past few weeks I have been busy restoring a 1919 Singer 66 machine. I will post pictures and a blog attempting to chronicle my attempts to make it usable again. I have also been knitting, I swear! it’s just not very interesting right now. I’ll try and get a photo and make it as entertaining as possible.

Why I’ve been gone

I have a completely valid reason for being absent these past few months. Here, let me give you a hint:

 

That’s right- I’m married! here are a few more highlight photos of the day:

 

I’ll be back in a bit to post about everything I’ve had an opportunity to work on since the wedding- it’s been nice having free time again!
