Actually, it's more like cold days but I didn't know what else to call the post. I guess if you live in Europe or the Americas you don't think 5 or 6 degrees celcius in the night and 18 or 20 in the day to be cold but here on the New South Wales mid north coast we think it is almost freezing. And we can soon expect even colder days and nights. So in order to stop our little bit of heat escaping out the lounge room windows I have decided to make some curtains. Of course, they won't be lined or anything but they will be a barrier of sorts and also keep nosey neighbours eyes out at night.
So far this what I have come up with. I visited our local curtain shop and picked up 5 metres of lovely fabric for a mere $10. Everything else I needed to completed these curtains was at home so I was delighted with them. I still am but now I realise that when they are pulled across they have no fullness. Well, what can a girl do but spend another huge $10 and get 10 metres instead of 5. That's what I should have done in the first place but it wasn't garage sale day when I made my first buy. Today I have to cut them out and sew them up and I can't think of anything worse to do, however I will because we have visitors tomorrow evening. Hopefully they will look good enough to show you soon.
Do you like my new picture? It is just what I needed to fill that last space in our living area above the dining table.
And this is how much it cost!! How could I possibly say no!
O and one more bag. It doesn't look great in this picture because it is already wrinkled from use but I just love it - so much so that I am not going to share it with anyone else but you, even though the handles are just a tad too short to be really comfortable.
