Cath Kidston Curtains

Well it really feels like there is forward movement...I got the curtains made and hung in the dining room Thursday. I've had this fabric sitting in it's packaging for over a year since I spotted it in the Sale at Cath Kidston. It's a discontinued design called "Breakfast time" which seemed most appropriate for the B&B!

I've still got the sewing machine out, as I've a couple of other projects to do, including making a cushion for the back of the big chair out of a pair of vintage linen tea-towels, celebrating the investiture of Charles as the Prince of Wales in 1969! I picked the first one up in London some time ago, and found the second, here in Cardigan, not long after we arrived. It's a very stylised dragon design, bearing the very stern legend on the selvedge 'Accepted by the Council for Industrial Design'...well there we are then (as they say around here!)

This is a close up of the finished Dragon cushion - seen on the chair at the right o the picture above....
