WIP Wednesday and a Book!

Quite a while ago we did some rennovations on our home and one of them was a workroom for me. We used to have an extra room with a jaccuzi in it that we never used. So we decided to let the jaccuzi go to a friend and turn the room into a workroom for me! I love this room, so much warmth and sunshine flowing through the windows… What I haven’t done yet is hang any curtains. So I decided to make Roman blinds myself and so far it is all working out! Thank goodness!
I have started with the smallest window in the room first, to see how it goes and I used this wonderful tutorial which really helped, and I can actually do this:) I even matched up the flowers on the side. ( Gasp)  Ok, I know I am going on and on, but I knit and haven’t really done much sewing,(which I am planning to change, I might add) and this blind actually fits the window, so there is hope for me as far as sewing goes…

I attached the lining and the tape for the strands of chord, now I just need to buy some wood for the bottom and the top and we are basically done:)


I have some exciting news…. ( drum roll…….)

Ok here it is….. I am entering a new chapter in my life…

My friend Heidi and I have decided to put our creative ideas together and write our first book!!
It will be a knitting book with many exciting inspirational ideas and patterns! We can’t wait to start putting it together. We will be chatting with our publishers soon and will keep you all updated.

    i’m the other way round–more of a sewer than a knitter. But I just committed myself to more sewing too! Can’t wait to see your finished product.
