Creative concealment project complete!





My little drapery concealment turned out to be a bit more complicated than it needed to be. I temporarily misplaced a little wooden thread holder that holds my big spool of thread on the Featherweight. Not good...it took a little while to find, and then with the pinning of the pleats...well--I wanted to do a 'mistreatment' ala The Nester, but instead ended up pleating, sewing, and hemming my project. So tempting to get out the glue gun, but I would have probably burned myself with it. I still need to load the bookcase, but it really doesn't look too bad...I love the fabric, the price was right, and I finished it in under 24 hours of starting it--pretty impressive for me. All in all, I only spent about 45 minutes actually working on it. The rest was hunting & gathering.

Gee this looks great. I wish I could sew, I love the idea of cover-up, especially in my art room. This gives me some inspiration. Thanks, Karen
