Sewing Up A Storm

I am sewing up a storm....well sort of :-).

I really am not a seamstress.  So it will probably take all weekend to get this pair of drapes sewn.

I did order my decorative traverse rod.  It is from JC Penney and should arrive in 7-10 business days.

You know I was inspired by Sarah Richardson's farmhouse bath.  For all of you Sarah fans out there, her new show starts this Saturday on HGTV at 8PM.  It is called Sarah's Summer House.  Here is a picture of one of the rooms in the Summer House below.

Looks like it is going to be a wonderful house!

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Mother's Day.

Welcome Home,


  1. Penny, I am anxious to see your drapes when they are finished........I just LOVE the fabric...It would take me all weekend too!

  2. That rod is gorgeous. It would take me even longer than you to sew. I want to, but I am so impatient. I am looking forward to Sarah's new show.

  3. Penny, I love Sarah on HGTV!! I love the drapery rod you ordered-really beautiful. Can't wait to see those drapes up in the pretty bath of yours. Enjoy your Mother's Day!

  4. The rod, the fabric - it's all going to be beautiful! Thanks for the heads about Sarah's Summer House. Is it different than Sarah's Cottage which aired a year or two ago? I'll have to check.

  5. Can't wait to see your first set of drapes Penny!
    the fabric is gorgeous!

  6. Yeppers, I am a Sarah fan. Thanks for the tip.

    Now, get busy because I am dying to see the changes to your beautiful bathroom.♥

  7. Oooh...your curtains and rod will make the perfect combination! I can just see it now! I must say that Sarah's farmhouse is like my DREAM HOME. Who knows...maybe one day! Have a great weekend, Penny!

  8. Your curtains look beautiful so far. I can't sew so I really admire anyone that takes on a project. The fabric is really pretty!

    My daughter loves Sarah, but I have yet to watch it. I'll look out for it.

    8 more days and we will be meeting up!!!


  9. Your fabric is gorgeous and I love Sarah's room you showed. Take care.

  10. I love this fabric. It is absolutely gorgeous. It's going to look wonderful in your bathroom. I just love the inspiration bathroom, too - the yellow tub is wonderful. Good luck with the sewing.

  11. I am going tolove those drapes, and even though I sew it would take me all weekend too. There really is a lot of sewing with all that length and width to hem. I know they will be just beautiful though:>)

  12. new to your blog, it's beautiful!! looking forward to seeing more!!

  13. I'm impressed that you are making drapes. You get so much accomplished, I do more thinking than doing, LOL!

    The curtain rod looks great too.


  14. Have great fun, creating your new curtains!

    Thank you for the watching tip.

    Happy Mother's Day wishes to you.

    Gentle hugs,

  15. Thank you for the heads up. I love her other Sarah's House shows. This should be tons of fun! Love the fabric by the way. Beautiful.

  19. Penny, Thanks so much for the info on Sarah's new program. I just set a series recording so I don't miss any of the episodes. I'm dying to see your new curtains.
    Hope you have a great weekend and a Happy Mother's Day,

  20. Good luck with all your sewing! Love Sarah's shows and thanks for letting us know when the new one begins. I'll be DVRing it too. Mimi

  21. Good morning Penny, I adore Sarah Richardson's show. I can't wait to watch her new project. Her decorating inspires me too. Your drapery fabric for your bathroom is stunning. I LOVE the yellow accents for your beautiful bath. I have a similar bath and I am now inspired too. I haven't decorated that bathroom because I couldn't make up my mind what to do. (I saw your previous post and love it all) I know you will do a wonderful job on the drapes. Good luck with your project. I feel your excitement. Smile.

    Have a wonderful Mother's Day my dear friend.
    Love, Jeanne

  22. Take it slow and steady and you'll have those drapes together and done with much more love and care than if you had purchased them. That summer home of Sarah's is amazing.

  23. I love Sarah! That room is gorgeous.

    Looks like your curtains are coming along nicely.

  24. I am so glad that I was reading your post because I really like Sarah Richardson and the new show starts in 10 mins! Just programmed it in my DVR! I love that fabric and I know it is going to look great with that pretty rod! Can't wait to see the finished product! ~Hugs, Patti

  25. I found your blog this morning and am so happy to discover you are from NC! I live in Texas, but I am from Asheville. I am going to visit my parents at the end of the month, maybe we will get a chance to visit your shop!
    I love your fabric for your curtains, you have a lovely home.
    I look forward to reading more of you blog

  26. Gorgeous fabric! I hope the sewing went well :))

  27. Oh how I adore Sarah!!! I love her style so much and enjoy watching her show. Your fabric is gorgeous! Can't wait to see what your storm has brewed up!
