I came across a few yards of upholstery fabric and thought of  son and wife
who had requested a thick curtain to block the street light outside their
bedroom window.  I've been very busy and finished the curtain and tie backs
this afternoon.  I will see them tomorrow for DGD's birthday to give it to
them.  Yeaaaah!   A gift for everyone!

That's great; I'm sure DS & wife will appreciate the curtains.
What about DGD?  I imagine she enjoyed her gifts as well.

One of the first things I made when we moved in her, 10-years ago, was a
curtain for DS.  The street light shines right into the window by the bed.

Son & family came up today for DGD's birthday cook out.  They loved the
curtain.  DGD loved her birthday gifts, some T-shirts I had bought.   Later
we went to WalMart to get a few items, and then they left to drive the 30
minutes home as the thunder was starting.  A good time was had by all!

Oh wow, you are in a regular 'curtaining fit'! ;-) I have the living room
and the bedroom windows to do, but I avoid it right now. Although, with the
starch method used on the chiffon, things might be a lot easier... Anyway,
great job you are doing right now. Curtains seem to be so easy but I find
that the devil is in the details, so hat off!

Thanks!  The curtain Was very basic.  I used the serger on all edges of both
panels and then turned under a pocket for the curtain rod after stitching a
1" border to "ruffle up" when it is on the rod.  Very simple, yet it looked
good!  Now I am going to take a sewing break and get back to straightening
up a little.  Anyone wanna help?

A bribe?  Hummm, How about time with two wonderful dogs and then lunch at
Carolina Fine Foods for their lunch buffet?  Now THAT is a great bribe!

That will work.  I'll be there as soon as I get my own creating area
restored to order.   It may take a while.  Polly
