A day at home…

…. means….

(i) …. a bargain…


….the curtains for our new home which original cost was around 70 per meter and which I paid 9 € per meter. Since I learnt to sew straight seams (see my totes….) I thought that I could be able to sew courtains too. I was sweating cold because I knew that curtain fabric costs a lot but did’t even dream it could be so awfully lot…. the average price is around 70 – 80 € per meter… So when the owner of my Mum’s favourite fabric store showed me this job lot I bought it immediately. Well, not exactly immediately because I wasn’t sure if I was doing the right thing so I called my Mum in law…. and when she told me that I will never ever find a better price for curtains of good quality as the above one, I purchased them in the very moment I stopped talking with her. I had to call her instead of asking my Mum because I need an ally with my Big man who has no idea about home decor prices and to whom 120 € for courtains could sound so very expensive…. Yeah, you understood it right, the whole house curtains for 120 €…. I’m very satisfied and will buy more in a second time if I’ll find a similar bargain. It’s always a good thing to have some spare curtains at home, don’t you think?Can’t wait to sew them and put them on!!!

What do you think, my friends? Do you like my purchase and do you think I did the right thing!! I have never ever bought curtains before so I feel I did well and can’t deny that I feel quite proud of myself 🙂

(This blog is becoming a self celebrating place…hmmmm…. it’s high time to calm down a bit…. )

(ii) …. a secret crochet project….


…. nothing to tell about that except that a single ball of yarn can give a big satisfaction…. and yeah, the light blue has a reason…. but more when the gift will be at its recipient’s…. 🙂

Off to packing my stuff!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  1. Bargain indeed, I had a quick look for curtain fabric for the designer bathroom a few weeks ago…I nearly fainted at the price for the fabric I really liked £70 = 97 Euros hence it’s still in the shop while I save up !!
    I’m looking forward to seeing you new curtains installed 🙂

    1. Thanks,Roma! I feel quite releived by your words ❤ ❤ ❤ I can tell you the same I told to Sheila (see my first blog..) and precisely that I have always had borrowed or given curtains, sheets, towels, table cloths and so on and I just wanted something chosen by me.. I would never have told that curtains could cost so much and now I feel happy because, thanks to the advice of the owner of my Mum's fav store, I managed to find a perfect compromise between price and quality. I'm happy about that and I promise that I will sew the curtains with the best care I could.

  2. Oooh, good find! Your house is going to look amazing! I know what you mean about the joy of choosing something for yourself for a change – since I left home, I’ve always rented, and that means enduring some pretty questionable furniture and decor! Have fun making your home your own 🙂

    1. That’s exactly my point. That’s why I wanted to have something chosen by me. He he moreover it seems that even my Mother in law has understood that since, from now on, she says me that she can give me what I need but only if I like it…. 😅😅😅
