I think that fabric ranks right up there with the avocado green shag rugs we had in our first house. They were there when we moved in and we didn't replace them because, at the time, we actually liked them! Oh the horror!! They say everything comes back into fashion, but I think there are things that only deserve one go 'round. That pineapple fabric is definitely one of them!

My bedroom curtains were a temporary measure when we moved in, thankfully I did hem the ghastly fabric I threw at the windows because they are still hanging there twenty years later. I can't say that it's grown on me over that time.

The pineapples can't have been intended for dresses surely?


Wow, those certainly are some curtains! At least the fabric can be useful somehow!


Hi, Robin: Surprisingly, it doesnt look as bad as curtains as I expected it to, although I couldnt help but consider what was she thinking? when I found it in my mothers fabric stash. I needed shade cloth for my lettuce because the summer heat is too much for it, and the stuff you buy for shade cloth is expensive and not cut for garden rows (it is designed for greenhouses). I now have a great use for these after theyre down.

Ive been swamped with work, and have a chapter due tomorrow on the anatomy book (and it is looking really iffy about making that date). I started reading your blog entries and got interrupted--in the midst of all that is going on, my phones went dead and the Verizon guy was here to fix the connection. So I now have a new phone--a corded base with cordless extensions--that I have to figure out how to use. A part of me longs for the day when you simply plugged the damn thing into the wall and it worked. But it replaces my answering machine too, and once I get it set up with call waiting and all the frills that FIOS offers, I know Ill be delighted.

The person Im working with on the anatomy book is an old colleague, and she has been really patient with me during fall-winter conflicts and the repairs, but now she is going nuts because the book is getting close to production, and I dont want to disappoint her. It is really one of the toughest things Ive worked on for a while, but very engrossing. And jury duty really is looming. I need to get ahead on this so when I get the new summons, I can take the time off without screwing up the book.

Ill get back to your blog tonight and finish looking at all the terrific vacation pictures.

Yikes! Reminds me of my mother's polyester crimpoline (whatever that was) in a hideous mauve from the early 70's. She wore it with a white floppy-brimmed hat that my sister's dog eventually ate.

Finally I managed to renovate my house, and look more nice and cozy now, I change all my old furniture and now I have to place some decorations. I am at the part with curtains, I search many stores but I didn't find one to fit my house design, so I guess I have to make myself one, go buy the fabric and sew it.
