Nothing fancy, simply a curtain to cover the window in our back door (in our kitchen)...I used Amy Butler fabric that I got on sale at Sewn, a cool shop, I could've spent LOTS of money there. I got the pom pom fringe at another shop...isn't it so cute? I think it would be nice on an apron, too.When we moved into our house 5 1/2 year ago, there was an awkward space under the counter in the kitchen, I think the previous owners had 2 barstools there, but it's a galley kitchen, small, so it really doesn't make sense...so we use it to store stuff (all my stones and pans for baking are under there...recycling bin, etc.) and I covered it with this Michael Miller polka-dot fabric...and just added the same pom pom fringe to it, too.
Lately, my more adventurous sewing involved pennant banners, a pin cushion, circle skirts for my daughters and an alligator with a zipper for a mouth. I'm currently working on a prairie bonnet.
