Didn't Resist!

One of my goals in the sidebar is to "resist functional sewing" or something like that.  I didn't resist, but I have to say I am delighted with these curtains.  So much more cozy than the beige metal mini-blinds that came with the house.  Still have to hem them, I needed to check the length in relation to the bed first.

I'm also delighted that I got the fabric, lining, rods, and ring-clips, all for about $130, with coupons at JoAnns. And there are two windows, same size/shape on the wall to the right.    I don't buy their quilting fabric, but the home-dec stuff is fine with me.

Finding Art Wherever You Are

While doing housework this weekend I noticed this interesting juxtaposition of the clothes washer, the waste basket and the floor.  Since the iPhone was right there charging I snapped a picture.

Just now I am reading Elisabeth Barton's latest blog entry, and she talks about exactly this - finding art wherever you are!   

(Yes, that is bird seed in the basket.)
