For over a year now I have not sewn the curtain for my kitchen door. I am not that good at sewing so I guess I am lucky that I can at least sew a straight line and that's all I needed for this door.
Today when I started this project anything that could go wrong did. It all started with me not being able to find the power cord to my sewing machine. We have lived here over two years and this is the first time I used the sewing machine. I looked in the sewing table and the dresser that I use to hold supplies but could not find it. I finally found it on the bookshelf in the exercise room. How it got there I don't know. The next thing to happen was my hubby installed the top curtain rod and when he tried to open the door the finial hit the cornice board and the door would not open all the way. So needless to say I had to run to Wal-Mart and get a different set. The other finials were much more ornate than the new ones. At least I was able to get it sewn without having to pull out the stitches and start all over. Yes that has happened to me before a few times. So here it is.
It's not the prettiest thing I have ever done but it served its purpose. You know, like when you want to get a cookie in the middle of the night and you are naked. Oh yes, the neighborhood behind our house can see into this door at night when the light is on. Ok, so now on to the ugly part. I am really embarrassed to show the before picture but here it goes. Please don't laugh.
Yes it was tacked on at the top of the door with thumbtacks. What can I say. I needed a quick remedy at the time and I really don't like to sew. I still need to make one for the front door and the basement door before company comes for Thanksgiving. And yes those are jerry-rigged also. Like I said I really don't like to sew and I seem to put things off for a long time when it comes to sewing. Just like when I bought material for the dining room curtains right after we moved in two years ago and it is still in my craft room closet. I plan on doing those this winter along with many other projects (hopefully).
