After returning home from seeing Becoming Jane with a friend, I closed myself up in the craft room and made a new valance for my kitchen window.
For some reason, the gingham looks pink here. It isn't. It is red. Very red.
I attached a vintage tea towel (split in half and sewn together side-to-side) to the top center and I think it looks like an apron.
(If for some reason you happen to spy the spider up near my clock, it is a Halloween decoration. Yeah, that's it. A Halloween decoration.)
