Amazingly, I am actually using curtain fabric to make ... curtains!

Haha....no Scarlet O'Hara channeling this time!  Grin 

Ever seen the Carol Burnett parody of Gone With the Wind? 
I remember watching it the first time it aired.

Somewhere on the web they keep posting the entire episode (about 22 minutes), but naturally copyright owners keep taking them down. It's a classic.

I finally made that quilt out of all those old jeans I had been saving for 20 years... Word to the wise; only put the denim on one side, because if you do a two-sided denim quilt you will be crushed to death under the weight of it...

The quilt is now in my car as; 1. an emergency sit-on ground-cover quilt, and 2. to protect the back seat from our dogs if they need to go to the vet etc. (probably using litres more petrol now due to the increased weight  Grin )

Still, no more old jeans in the cupboard!

Finished the cushions and bunting etc for the little cubby we built for our granddaughters. (Yes, I made bunting...) The finishing is moot now, as we are in stage 4 lockdown and our granddaughters are not allowed to visit.

Looking for a pattern for a women's elegant white shirt. Blowed if I can find one! I used to have a pattern from the 1970s but now I can't find it.

Denim is pretty tough stuff. I used to do archery and would close off one end of half a leg from a pair of jeans and use it as a quiver. A few of good layers could act as the equivalent to 4 ounces of leather. Of course, a bit warm if you wear multiple layers and sewing multiple layers isn't nice to a normal sewing machine.
