last year i bought some beautiful cotton lawn locally. i fell in love with the print of gorgeous pink flowers on the blue and crisp white background.
I decided that i would use it to make a roman blind to hang in our bathroom so that each morning i would be greeted by it's cheeriness and i could make believe that i was bathing in a fragrant flower meadow!
I started the blind last summer then for some reason put it to one side as work and other jobs took it's place. I remembered recently that this uncompleted project was still in a bag under my work table so out it came. I only had the Velcro, rings and cord to add and the baton to fix up and it would be ready to hang.
Meanwhile over on twitter i saw that Amanda from Sew Deputy was using the very same fabric to make herself a Ruby dress. We exchanged tweets and Amanda said the fabric reminded her of the TV program Rosie and Jim. We then reminisced about Rosie and Jim which our children had enjoyed watching when they were younger. So my flower meadow blind nearly changed into my Rosie and Jim Blind!
we still have my youngest girls Rosie and Jim dolls plus a duck, not the real one from the program but a wooden duck i got at a car boot sale which i am strangely fond of and who always seems to to survive any de-cluttering i do.
i love my new blind and it really does freshen up the bathroom and my man even let me borrow his new drill so i could put it up.
Amanda finished her Ruby dress and managed to snap a picture next to a barge! for those of you that remember the program you'll understand why. Do go and have a look at her creation.
If you love the fabric then White tree fabrics sell it, although i think after Amanda made her dress they sold out, but i see it is now back in stock ; )
