WIP: Quilt Curtains

I have a number of projects in need of progress photos-- and maybe I'll take some in the next few days.  In the meantime, just to keep the old blog from going into hibernation, I'm here with a couple of photos from just one work in progress.

I believe I have mentioned before that I wanted to make a pieced curtain for our kitchen door's window-- and a matching/coordinating one for the window over the sink.  Well, as is my wont, I took for-ev-er working on it, but I'm finally, finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.  The scrappy binding is sewn together.  All I have to do now is press it in half and then apply the binding!  Everything else is done!!!

Then I started crocheting some more doilies.  I'm on the last round of one (no photos of that), but there are pictures of a few "little doilies" that I not only finished, but blocked and gave as part of a birthday gift to my mother (along with the "Momentous Occasion" I crocheted last year).
