oh curtains!

let me first introduce you to a friend of mine! this little fellow came right up to the fence, let me tickle his nose, then had a nibble on my finger! he seams to have a faulty ear, so we named him 'loppy lamb' - his mum didn't seam too pleased about him fraternising with humans though...

I teach African Style Drumming on a monday night, and where we have the class, they always have fresh flowers in every room, the light was just right, and I thought these roses were just stunning! so as with everything else in life now, I have to take a photo to share with you all on my blog. I went out for lunch on Sunday, and took my camera to photograph the food...forgot...then took a photo of my daughters half eaten meal - I have desided you will be glad to hear, not to share such a delightful scene with you.


Finally managed to finish my patchwork curtains! woohoo!! I stayed up late to get them finished on Saturday night, just so I could lie in bed on Sunday morning and admire them...Husband thought they were a little too girly for him, but pointed out I had added some 'blue' patches for boys...he still thought they were girly, but conceded 'if you like them, then I am happy' 'right answer' say I!


they were a nightmare to photograph though - wrong time of day, and couldn't get them at an angle that got the whole of them in the shot...


so, now back to planning my doll for the swap!

Ooh They are so pretty. I keep umming and aahing about curtains. Country cottage wouldn't go in our house but I quite fancy sari fabrics in rich opulent colours. Seeing how you've done yours has helped me picture the finished thing. Thanks for the inspiration - maybe one day I'll find the time and actually make 'em!!! :0)
