Its taken a while but my curtain project is done!

It took a while to do but I finally finished this little project.
My New curtains for the back bedroom,and the reason the took so long ,they are all hand stitched by my own fair hands....no sewing machine in this house!And I have never made any thing like this before,even the tie back is hand made strips of fabric then braided with a loop on each end.

  4. Wow. You're very creative, Rachel. Love these curtains, nice colour too. I'm sewing a lot by hand too. Last week I sow lace curtains for my grandchild, but after one curtain, my sister borrowed me her sewing machine..Phew..the second curtain was much quicker finished, than the first one :)
