Sewing Curtains

Hello dear friends.
We are having a beautiful 
October Day. . 
But, I know that parts of the country
Are experiencing some very 
Scary Weather. . .I pray the Lord
May bless you and your loved ones
May you be safe and protected. . 

As most of you know I moved into a new
Condo a few months ago. . .So,
I have been having fun decorating
And adding my own personality to my Home.
This weekend I made new curtains for my
Kitchen window.
I wanted something that would not
Block the beautiful view I have.
My Utah Mountains are so beautiful

These are the Oquirrah's (Don't worry about pronouncing it)

  As you can see I have very high ceilings. . .
So.. . I wanted to cover the top of the window
But leave enough covering, that I didn't diminish my view
Or the beautiful morning sun
 I didn't want a plain bottom hem. . .So. . 
I used a salad plate to trace my scallops. . 
(You don't need a pattern, just creativity)
 You can see the counter-tops
With my Autumn vignettes. .
 I do very little "real" cooking
I think the kitchen is just to decorate!
Just Sayin?
So now the kitchen window has it's curtain.
It made the kitchen look so much more "homey"
 Cozy and gave it a finishing touch.
Now I am working on the sliding door window.
I will do the same thing. . . 
I am so glad I know how to sew.
I learned at a very young age.
I come from a long line of seamstresses.
When I was younger raising my family
I did A LOT of sewing.
I have one daughter, so you can image the
Fun I had making her clothes.
She was a dancer and I made all her costumes.
My sewing talents have been a  blessing in my life
And helped me to express my own creativity.
How about you. . .Do you SEW?

I will be joining these lovely blogs

  1. I can sew just enough to get by. I can make simple curtains, runners, etc. But if it gets into anything major, I'm not the one you want sewing. :) Your curtain is lovely. I really like the scalloped edge. Your home is looking so good!

  2. Hi Karie,
    I love how your curtains turned out...and the scalloped edge was brilliant. Your fall decorations on the counter are so festive and colorful. Wow on the view, I would be standing in front of the kitchen sink all day long just looking out. Your view is amazing (all I see from my kitchen window is the neighbor across the street LOL)
    Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

  3. The curtains look great, I love the material and the scalloped edge. They look great in your kitchen.

    I'm dropping in from Marty's (A Stroll Thru Life). It's nice to meet you

  4. So very talented you are! I love the scalloped edge on the curtains. I can relate to the kitchen cooking thing. Wish I were more creative in that arena! Don't you feel blessed to have the beautiful mountains surrounding us?! I know that I take them for granted some days--but I truly love them! Especially this time of year with the color changes! Hugs.

  5. Oh I love the scallops and the fabric. Perfect. They look wonderful and so perfect in your kitchen. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  6. I love your curtains. I can sew but really don't like to but I also have a daughter and enjoyed making all her clothes when she was little. Thanks so much for linking up at Totally Transformed Tuesday. :-) Peggy~PJH Designs
