I'm still here! And I have curtains!

I'm still here!  We've had a tearful few weeks with the loss of my Nan-in-law after a battle with cancer and the diagnosis of cancer in my Dad.  Blogging has fallen by the way-side, but I thought I'd pop in tonight with an update on the dining/kitchen window.  It's finally dressed!

I used a piece of burlap 36"x54", cut in half lengthwise to get two pieces 18"x54", and then sewed end to end to get one piece roughly 18"x108" (1.5'x9').  The rod pocket band at the top is made of ribbon that I found at Walmart.  It was wire-edged ribbon and so I had to remove the wire - kind of tedious, but actually not as difficult as I thought it might be.  I used hem tape for the first time on the side hems, but sewed the rest.  The curtain rod was a real score - on sale at Zellers for $4.97!

I have some other projects in mind, but I'm not sure when I'll get around to them.  Hold your loved ones tight!
