Ready to go to Work and Rest

I've been on vacation since Friday and tomorrow I'll be going back to work to rest. I still need to exchange my summer clothes for winter clothes. Where I work is generally so cold, that we wear long sleeves all year long.

I used the same fabric that we recovered the dining room chairs and added it to the length of the curtains in the dining room. Actually, the curtains are shower curtains - but you would never guess it.

The curtains before weren't quite long enough and I really wanted this pattern.

Now, I have to say - I don't have a sewing machine, nor do I know how to do much other than sew a straight line. I used fusible web & then the fusible web stopped working, (how is this possible?) so I just got out my liquid stitch and kept on going.

And I did this one all by myself! WOO HOO! (Heck -I usually have operator error issues - this might be a miracle that I completed this by myself!)

DH - I want to get new curtains for the living room and add fabric to them...

And, in case you forgot - I'm going to work to rest!

I'm linking up to DIY Day at A Soft Place to Land and to Procrastinator's Party atThe Inspired Room. Make sure to stop over and check out all the other great posts.

Good job on the curtains. And I had to laugh at your going to work to rest comment. I remember about 20 years ago when I got back from vacation that I said I needed a vacation from my vacation. Then bam, my son gets chicken pox. And I had to stay home to take care of him. But that wasn't exactly what I was asking for. I'd rather have been at work than that. lol. Thanks for sharing your curtains and for visiting my blog & leaving a comment.

That looks really great! And no, I never would have guessed that they were once shower curtains. Very pretty! :)
