lace curtains?

In the process of organizing my house, I've come across some fabric I forgot about.  Shortly after we moved into our house we took down the curtains in our living room and have yet to replace them.  We have shades up though, don't worry!  I'm just not sure what kind of curtain I want to put in that room yet... I change my mind  a lot when it comes to home decor :)
Anyways the previous curtains included an outer layer of lace.  The lace for whatever reason DIDN'T match from window to window and had definite wear and tear.
I've debated on making a dress out of it... maybe dye it?
Any other ideas?

Fall happenings

Things are staying busy around here!  Enjoying fall (but not looking forward to winter, eek!), still attempting to get SCUBA certified (quite the experiences...), attempting to learn a new instrument (or 2), and lots of time visiting family near and far.
I'm still sewing too!  Just can't show you what yet, as it's mostly gifts.
(this is the cute roadside stand we got our pumpkins at this year)
I'm slightly bummed because it looks like I won't be making Halloween costumes for Hubby & I this year... I had it all planned out, but he has a busy work schedule again.  If something works out, I guess we'll wear last years costumes.
