Curtains, Good News, and a Promise

Three things to share today....


My brother is a very hip, very trendy guy.  He lives in L.A. and wanted some funky, retro curtains for his place.  He lives in a little bungalow - the entire building is his tiny one-bedroom apartment.  He also wanted the curtains to block out the light as much as humanly possible. So, this is what I made him:


Many months ago, I bought that gorgeous Japanese fabric at my favorite quilt store in NYC, and have been hoarding it for something that I knew would come up.  I  didn't have quite enough to make all the curtains, so I put in a stripe of Michael Miller fabric that seemed to fit (the fabric with the writing on it).  He wanted tab top curtains so that they'd have a more handmade feel.  At first, I disagreed, but seeing these photos he sent me, I really like the way they look.  Also, I couldn't find blackout material at a reasonable price (and in a small quantity), so I used black wool felt on the back.  Not only does it do a great job of blocking out the light, but the curtains insulate the windows too.  Pretty cool.


I got a late night request for a layout from Simple Scrapbooks.  Yay!  I'm a big fan of Simple Scrapbooks' entire approach to scrapbooking.  They're all about a guilt free scrapbook lifestyle.  That sounds good to me!


I have been taking my Photo-a-Day, but I've been terrible about uploading it to the album on the right.  Eeek.  I'm in the middle of production (with a show opening on Friday) and have a horrible cold, but I promise to get to uploading sometime in the next few weeks.

That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by!
