Kitchen/Keeping Room Curtains

Whew.....finally they are done. Never, ever, again will I do that much bias binding. I bought one of the little bias binding makers and used Steam-2-Steam to iron it on. I thought that it would save time and that I would do a neater job. It may have turned out a bit neater, but I think it cost me a lot of time. Anyway, they are done and I'm not going to gripe about them anymore.....maybe.

For the bay window, I had to alter the pattern for the larger center portion. It's not quite long enough but don't tell anyone. It's PERFECT to me. (insert little headbanging guy)

Next up are the den curtains. They will be a panel on each side and I'm considering doing pinch pleats at the top. We now have neighbors behind us (the house sat on the market for 2 years) so we need the ability to draw them closed at night.

I think I'll take a quick break from curtains, though, and make Amy Butler's Birdie Sling Tote for a silent auction to benefit the Seek-A-Miracle campaign which raises money through the MDA for FA research. Here is the link for the Reach for a Cure Silent Auction and Wine Tasting Event. If you'd like to contribute something to the silent auction, let me know. I think the deadline is sometime in March for having the item completed. The donation is tax deductible, too.

Beautiful, Candy! I think you are too hard on yourself - the bay window curtain looks fine to me. Hope you, Jason, & the kiddos are doing ok and that Hannah has fully recovered from mono.
Blessings, Sarita
