At last!

My fairy lights came!  I can finally finished my beaded curtain project and I can get on with new ones.  Not much to tell about their construction – I just pushed them through and cut the holes.  The assembly was a little more difficult though – it took me a few goes to get the […]

Combinations

All that’s left to do is to put the curtain together.  As the opening is an arch I think I will have to make a hood or covering to bring it altogether but I feel I need to see the curtaining hanging before deciding on the shape.  And in order to do that – I […]
