sew... what's new?

When we painted the great room at the Lake house green a few weeks ago, I decided it would be good to add a bit of that green around the room. This weekend I sewed new curtains for the door and a valence for the kitchen sink window. close-up of wall color and fabric

The white behind the sink is an "Anaglypta" wallpaper I put up years ago.
It looks like the design on old fashioned tin tiles and is on all the walls in the kitchen counter area.

It was a gorgeous fall weekend here in Atlanta, so I sewed with all the doors and windows open, enjoying the fresh air as if I were sewing outside!


  1. Love the fabric! It looks gorgeous! xoxo

  2. That looks great! thanks for commenting, this morning - next time you are in Madison -run in our new florist/garden shop. That is where my friend bought my arrangement. It is a GREAT shop that should be sitting in a major city, not in Madison - the name is Le Petit Jardin and it is located behind the Chop House - one block east of mainstreet.

  3. looks really nice all together. good job!

  4. Love it! I think I want a new sewing machine for Christmas. Any recommendations? Although I'll probably have to sew with the windows closed in the winter. BRRRR!

  5. The room looks really pretty... I love the wall color. My next mission is to learn to sew! Your curtains look adorable! Thanks for your visit and your kind words. You TRULY made my day! :0) Happy Tuesday!

  6. I love the fabrics you picked! Everything looks so beautiful. =)

  7. Cute, cute, cute! You are so talented and have such great taste. I aspire to be like you. Someday...

  8. Great fabrics! Love the green paint you used too!
