This is a blog about me and my activities, not soup to nuts though because I don't go near the kitchen.

My Dollhouse Curtains are Done
I have finally finished the curtains for my dollhouse. I found it a very difficult task. The bath and kitchen curtains were easy because I used a ready made lace for then. I used shrimp skewers for the curtain rods and bent straight pins to hold them up. For the nursery I used scrap book paper with embroidery floss for the tassel. I glued them in place. My fat fingers had a terrible time getting into that corner. The living room curtains are my least favorite. I had a hard time with the skewers and the pins with the bay windows. The last one I finished was the bedroom. I had a rubber pleater that my sister-in-law had given me. It doesn't work on polyester fabrics, but once I used cotton,it worked all right. With the valence I could just glue everything in place and not worry about curtain rods. Now I just need to tackle some of the furnishings.
I am a retired electrical engineer. I am the 5th generation to live in Detroit. My hubby, dad, brother, uncles and cousins and I all worked for the auto industry. I hate to cook! I like anything to do with a needle, not for shooting up but for pulling thread. Two of my daughters have a blog and I decided I wanted one too. My hubby said no one would read it.
