What Have I Been Up to??

Well, I 've been working on the cabin slowly but surely. While Patrick was still up here I put up a total of 6 venetian blinds. Day before yesterday I made these summery curtains for the kitchen, as well as put up the curtain rod and tiebacks! I kind of cheated on "making" the curtains, as they were actually two 80X60 tablecloths and two twin sheets that I used for the linings. They aren't totally finished, since I need to wash them so they shrink (100% Indian cotton), then I'll do the final sewing. I go through these spates of domesticity...then they fade! More later. Hope you all have a cool weekend. (I have my fans running here at the cabin.)
love, Cassie

Nice curtains. If we had any on our windows, however, they'd get shredded in no time by the three cats. As it is the edge of our plastic shower curtain has been perforated by the fangs of Chester and Shadow.

Hi Cassie,
I was just thinking of you today and wondering what you were doing!!
Nice curtains! I need to put some new ones in our bedroom, but they will be ready-made as I'm not up to tackling that job!! Take care and have a happy weekend! Hope Patrick is doing well!

Those look nice - and homemade can be the nicest of all. Our cats have no front claws, so our curtains are intact. So far.

Cool weekend? Maybe - it's 58 today, but the official guess is we might get up to 70 by Sunday. Ooh, ahh, and all that stuff. :)

Great job Cassie!!! Spates of domesticity? Is that what it is called when I run through the house like a madwmoman cleaning everything in sight and then complain for a week that NO ONE helps me??? :)

Great curtains. I know what you mean about the spouts of domesticity - I'm the same way!

Hope it cools down soon.
