These Curtains were not made in China

These are the second set of curtains that I made last Saturday, but I didn't have time to put up until today.

I had to recharge the battery to my drill and then I got busy with other home stuff before I found time to hang these blue lovelies. I'm pleased with the cheerful pattern and color.
It's nice how they've changed the mood in the kitchen. These are the third set of curtains I've made in my lifetime. All three sets were made with my mother's old sewing machine. I am improving and again I am grateful that my mother taught me how to use her sewing machine. It sure is so much nicer to make my own curtains. Pre-made, store bought curtains are so impersonal. It also costs me a lot less to buy three yards of material and make them myself. I get to choose a pattern and color that are to my liking. And now with my experience on my mother's sewing machine, I can now get a little fancier with the pattern. This time I made these two sets in one day. Not bad at all. It feels great to complete another project.
