Okay, so here are some pics of the curtains I made. The bedroom ones were made from plaid flannel top sheets and so easy to make, but I do need to sew them properly with my newly acquired sewing machine since these were a quick throw together and hand sewn and safety pinned, lol. The sheer cheese cloth panel is in the middle. The panels for y kitchen curtains aren't hanging quite as I would like so I need to do some tweaking, but they do the trick! And the black shelf is one of the shelves that got on the weekend. It was a light oak color so I painted it and sanded it and I think it turned out quite well. I'm starting to get the hang of these things :)
I am a stay at home mom of 5 children and I am married to my wonderful husband James for almost 9 years. We live on a 75 acre farm in the rolling hills of Kendal, Ontario which has been in my husband's family since the mid 1880's. Our house is over 150 yrs old and I love it! We have 3 dogs, 3 cats, 1 horse,1 hamster, and numerous chickens and ducks. Life is never dull around here to say the least. I love antiques and the simpler way of life and I have a interest in Prim Decor which is slowly but surely taking over my home. I also dabble in candle making. soap making and prim crafts but I have alot to learn.
My motto is ;
I BELIEVE, MIRACLES DO HAPPEN!, since our 9 yr old son was born with a rare genetic disorder called Hurlers Syndrome/ MPS1 in which he received a bone marrow transplant at the age of 11 months old to slow down the progression of his disease... during this time he was so ill that he was not expected to recover and come home with us... BUT HE DID!! And against all odds, he is still with us today :) So Believe That Miracles Can Happen!!
