This is my latest finished project: new curtains for the sleep-out (spare room). I should say new/old curtains really, because I used some fairly old fabric to make them.
I'd been hoarding it for ages (since this post) but it was already old before I stashed it away (probably from the 1950s-60s, I'd say). When I pulled it out for sewing, I realised it had been cut up into an assortment of different strips and squares. So, the job turned into a bit of a patchwork project.
The reason why I was so keen to use this material is because it's printed with NZ flowers and plants: ferns, clematis, fuschia, kowhai, pohutukawa. And along the top of each panel, I found the names of the flowers written ever-so-carefully in ballpoint pen.
KOWHAI -- KAKABEAK -- CLEMATIS -- HEBE.
