I made a curtain!
Ok, so all I did was put a lining on it, but that's the most sewing I've done since I left school! I don't have a sewing machine either, so I had to sew this beauty by hand. (Shhh. Don't look at the stitching up close, otherwise you'll see how much of a novice I am.)
I feel so proud of myself right now. I was planning on buying new curtains because the ones that came with the room trailed all over the floor and were very annoying. But then there was a sale near work, where I saw this fabric for super cheap so I decided to DIY it instead :D
As I was sewing, I watched some of Stephen Fry's Planet Word. In this episode he was talking about swearing, and there was a scene with Brian Blessed which was superb. I could happily watch Brian Blessed swear all day.
Here's the clip (the scene with Brian Blessed can be found at 1:48-10:26) but be warned, there's some bad language about:

Janny, love the stitching, but am more amazed by your office chair. Did you steal this from a hairdressers? Very retro!
