A Little Modesty Curtain
The bathroom and downstairs toilet in the new house has plain glass in the windows, why I don't know they don't even have any blinds or curtains at the windows, you just sit there in full view.
Not there would be many passers by, but I don't want to be on view when the post man calls.
I set about make a set of lace panels on my sewing machine the other week with silver thread and I added a blue variegated fish and shells to each of the panels, the panels have now been joined together and I have added some glass dagger beads to the bottom of the little curtain, this little curtain is go on the window of the downstairs toilet.
I sellotaped it to the window to take a photo. I am pleased how all the lace work has come out, not a scrap of fabric used just thread. for the bathroom window I have bought a sheer cotton panel as it is a fairly big window, I plan to stitch a design onto the panel perhaps blue sea shells and then I will do towels to match.
Until such time we get round to replacing the glass with frosted the curtains will suffice.
I had a friend come over for a visit today, we sat in the garden with some cream cakes she brought with her having a good old natter, I helped her picked a bag of gooseberries to take home and a bag of blackcurrants, goodbyes were said and I do hope she will come and visit in Wales.
We had a massive storm this afternoon it really threw it down and of course we ended up with a power cut, I had just finished cooking dinner, every time we have bad weather in the village we lose power Internet and phones, it got me thinking about being so rural will we lose power with bad weather, hubby did suggest we should perhaps look at a generator. We will see.
That about sums my day up now to have a look and see what every one else has been up to.
