Anyone who knows me will know that this is the MOST unlikely WOYWW for me. Yes that is a sewing machine, and yes, those are two HUGE bolts of fabric. I am hoping to turn them into bedding and curtains for one of the spare bedrooms.
It is all Dolly Traybakes fault. She is the fabric Queen, and when she was here last week I made the fatal mistake of showing her the fabric stash that I have hidden in the barn. Totally fatal!
The idea had been that she would fall in love with some of it, take it home and turn it into something fabulous dahling. Sorta didn't quite happen like that! She knows that I have been itching to do something about the furnishings and decoration of said bedroom and what evented was that I would make bed linen, bolsters and curtains.
So far I am amazed at myself, I have made two pillowcases, and they look like pillowcases! (they are the striped material) The patterned fabric sitting waiting for me to continue, is the curtains, apparently they are going to be box lined (whatever that is) with the blue fabric still all nicely wrapped up. This has to be taken into the sitting room to be unrolled, measured and cut, hopefully this time without managing to slice my finger open with the metal measure! I have my notes, I understand them and I am ready to carry on. Wish me luck!
