My book nook – everyone should have one

This morning seemed pretty grey and miserable outside, and the perfect morning for making a hot drink and getting on with some sewing. Before embarking on yet another project though I decided to have a go at finishing one for once. Here’s the result:

I took some scraps of blue gingham and did a simple hem along the bottom, then folded the top over and hemmed that. I hammered in a couple of nails to the top of each bookcase (the supports for the table) and balanced a piece of bamboo along them, which acts as my curtain rail. I added a tie (much to my cat’s delight) with a bit of leftover ribbon to hold the curtains together too.

This is the inside:

And my trusty model, Taro was on hand to show it off. Cats – whenever there’s a camera out they’re there!
