WINDOW COVERING- DONE

Yesterday I sewed the last three panels. After sewing 11-panels fully lined, last 3-panels was quick and easy to sew because I figured out that it much easier to sew the curtains first and attached the lining at the very end.

I hung them up last night and my daughter commented that of those were the most regal and rich looking curtains I've ever sewed.

I must admit there all lovely, but oh my gosh it was work. Anyway I wrote extensive notes, so the next time around it should be easier.

I stayed up until 1am cleaning up my sewing space, and today I will finish cleaning up.

Next- I am going to finish working on a blouse muslin and for the September Friday night sew-in I am going to work on finishing the red cropped jacket. No more big ideas for Friday night sew-in, yep I learned my lesson

I to have been contemplating doing some curtains. Lord knows I really need new ones. It's been a looooong time since I made curtains. When I did they were the super simple kind.

I've been thinking about doing some new curtains, too. What I have in the living room and dining room have been there for 6 years....it's time for a change, I think!
