It took another hour or two to attach the motifs, but here is the finished curtain in situ. Finally, a project to utilise my cotton motifs (pattern featured in my post earlier this month). This rather untidy corner of the kitchen had long been crying out for a curtain to hide the busy crates, storing everything from recycled bags to tupperware.
I've mentioned many a time how dark the cottage is, so I keep the kitchen as light, bright and simple as possible. If I had more natural light I might be tempted to introduce more colour and can imagine this same project but with pretty coloured motifs, stitched on to running stitch stalks, like flowers in a meadow. Speaking of flowers - the roses are flowering and my 'Limelight' hydrangea is positively groaning under the weight of its' huge blooms, couldn't resist taking a quick picture to show you! xxx
