We No Longer Live in a Fishbowl

Four years after we moved in, we FINALLY have curtains!

I wanted traditional bungalow curtains, which are made from Irish linen and are designed to stay inside the window casings, allowing the beautiful refinished douglas fir to be seen.

Alas, all of our windows were custom sizes. When I totaled up would it would cost, the sticker shock nearly knocked me over.

So I did what any enterprising chick with a DIY streak would do -- I took a sewing class.

It's taking a little longer than expected. Sigh. Most of my projects do. But we are still WAY ahead on the cost side. I'm so glad I decided to do it.
