Kitchen Curtains

So another thing that I’ve had more time for in the past two weeks is sewing!  I got a new sewing machine a couple of months ago and got two free sewing lessons with my purchase, so I’ve been looking forward to an opportunity to get some projects going. I had made one set of … Continue reading

Laundry and Bath Rooms Before and After
