Selecting Valences from some old Patterns



Yesterday was a busy day for this one!.Cecil and I went out early to take care of some business ...and we finished early ..and decided to try out a new store in the area for Valences for my curtains.....things have changed so much...I almost shopped til I dropped..but the stiff prices kept me upright :o)
I couldn't believe the cost of some of the Valences..and to get two would be the shooting of my budget, plus I felt guilty to purchase something I could whip up with out a struggle....so into my Pattern Stash from way back (I was even skinny then :o). Plus The guy on TMZ always says at the end "I'm a lawyer" well, "I'm a Grandma", and Grandma's mostly save everything :o) I made my selection and worked all evening to complete my task..First my so called best machine messed up ,(it needs to be overhauled) So I was able to use another (I've been blessed) and got thru that one..I had to keep the book at my side ,I had forgotten how to use it :o(

I like those patterns. I've never done any sewing for my home. After seeing what you are up to, I think I'd like to try one day.

Deborah, you would be surprised at how much you save and get better quality good besides.. and everyone won't have the same thing.
Like sewing for yourself..Ginny

Ginny, you are so crafty! I'm sure you will save quite a bit of money by sewing these yourself and you can make them completely to suit yourself that way. Will look forward to seeing them finished and up at your windows! :D

Ginny, the more we blog the more I learn how similar we are! (well, except for the cooking breakfast thing, and the weaving and spinning things. LOL) It's fun to see your valances taking shape. Gotta love the pattern stash!
