I still have to finish the curtains for the single window in her room. They’re about 60% done, but I need a break from sewing, as is it not my forte. Me and my Brother don’t always get along, but we seem to be doing ok here lately. I have a few pillowcases to sew after the curtains are done, and then he can get off of my kitchen table and go back into hiding for awhile.
(Not to be confused with Jane Curtin, of course.) The blue curtains I bought for Jane’s bedroom did not fit the double window. It took me 3 months to decide that I could no longer stand the 3 inch gap where they did not meet in the middle. So what did I do? I cut them down, spent way too much money, added some other fabrics to them, and now they look marvelous.
I had the red flowered-y fabric from awhile back. The blue, of course, is the re-purposed original curtains. The brown and the green are by Moda and came from a local quilting shop (hence, the way-too-much-money-spent). It’s expensive to be picky and want everything custom-made, especially when I’m involved in the making because I have no idea what I’m doing usually. I know what I want, but I may not know how to do it, so there’s a lot of trial-and-error in the process.
