Kitchen window is now 'dressed' :-)

I have been in this flat 2 years and just decided that the kitchen window needed 'dressing' lol

A couple of weeks back, my friend, Kim & I went to the Knitting & Stitching Show at Olympia, London and naturally we both bought some fabric - as you do !!

My little kitchen is mainly red so when I saw this beach themed fabric with the lovely bright red in it, I decided that it needed to become a cafe style curtain for the kitchen.

It then took me another 2 weeks to buy the tension rod - and the shop that sells them is less than 100 yards away. BUT, I did get one so this morning, I set about measuring the window etc etc 

All was going well. I cut all the fabric to the right size. I patiently sewed 9 tabs all ready and I was away. I pinned the tabs on and stitched the 2 pieces of highly pressed fabric together.............

THEN I realised that instead of pinning the tabs between the 2 pieces of fabric, I had pinned them to the outside. So naturally when I turned the piece right side out, the dam tabs were still on the inside !!

So, out came the quick unpick and I started again. I made sure I got it right the 2nd time.

I am now very happy with the final piece :-) 

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by my blog today x
