done.

alrighty.
so i made those curtains yesterday that we had spoken briefly about a few weeks ago.

when the fabric came earlier this week, i was so happy with it - it actually looked better in person, and the colors were right on.
my mom came to help, which is standard when i embark on a project.

here we are pre-curtain:


measuring, cutting, hemming, tookforeveroweurkjhdklfhakldkjncjkahdjf, then we hung them.


then i spent the next 15 hours walking in and out trying to figure what was wrong.

"they're too long" - says brian.

yes. they are too long. you are absolutely right.

i procrastinate what i'm about to have to do and wash the front porch.



then i did it all again. not really -just the cutting and sewing and re-hanging.

alas, they look right now. next: shelves and stainless steel cables for the railings.

Wow! They came out beautiful. I love the fabric you chose. It compliments your home so well. I do not sew so I am in awe of your ability.

Super cute! I'm impressed with your productivity. All I managed this weekend was eyebrow waxing and Harry Potter reading. And trying to kill myself playing badminton.

Lovely fabric! I need to finish my curtains for the kitchen... I'm a little daunted.
