Curtain up

Some might call this print garish, but I love the vibrant color (and the parrots that I keep imagining I see hidden in the pattern). I bought a few filmy panels at Pearl River Mart, then pulled out my old Kenmore sewing machine. To my surprise, I got it working, and now our abode is just a little bit brighter.

Today curtains, tomorrow festive patchwork pants? Ever since I saw Nina Paley's intricate quilts at the Maker Faire (see, for instance, her piece featuring Bruno the cat), I can't help but think that it might be time to throw myself back into the fiber arts.
