We've Come A Long Way, Baby - Kitchen Curtain

For Mother's Day I've finished a filet crocheted kitchen curtain.


(Please click on the photos to enlarge them).


This is without the lights on in the kitchen. Only the sunlight shining through the curtain.  


These two photos show it with the blinds down but opened slats. (One with lights on, one without).


These show it with the blinds pulled up.

After I crocheted the curtain, I got a sheer shower curtain from Goodwill which had a cute ruffle along one side. I sewed the curtain to the back. I had to scrunch the corners. I know it's not perfect but neither am I. LOL!

I crocheted 5 tabs which the curtain rod goes through.

I found the graph for this on this blog. It states that you cannot use the graph to make something to sell. (It also says you cannot make anything for yourself either which makes no sense at all).
So, use the graph at your own risk I guess.

Anyway, the image is in free domain.

It reminds me of the Moms you would see in those Fun With Dick and Jane early reader books.
But really, let's face it, whose Mom ever really looked like this? Not mine anyway.
I think she's either from a time earlier than my childhood or she never really existed at all.
Just an ideal. A fantasy Mom.

But I love the image.
And now she hangs in my kitchen and shines through my window every morning.

Happy Mother's Day everyone!
