Blah – sewing

3 05 2009

I have been knitting, but my valuable knitting time is being hijacked by the dreaded sewing machine. 

We had new sliding glass doors installed in the dining room, totally, gorgeously bright and sunny.  The door had to be custom made, I wanted the largest amount of glass that could possibly be fit into the space available.  My builder was horrified, but, in the end, grudingly admit that the job wasn’t as bad as he thought it was going to be and that the extra size was worth it. 

Anyway, the upshot is that the door was expensive and there is no money left to pay someone to make the curtains, so I am stuck at the sewing machine, sewing endless side seams and hems.  We will also replace the blinds (oh the bliss when I throw those things on the scrap heap) at the lounge sliding door and our bedroom sliding door.  So three sets of curtains, two 290X220 and one 230X230.

So no knitting photos, but here is a peek at the new addition to the house….I am almost as proud as if I had had a new baby…
