Why are curtains the most annoying thing in the entire world to work with? Honestly, I think I'd rather spend the day working with 13 year olds, than working with curtains. Something always goes wrong for me, and it's generally in the "putting up" department. I think I've spent too long looking at my students straight seams, because the moment I put up the sheers I could tell that they were a quarter of an inch closer to the ceiling on one side than the other - didn't even need a ruler. Guess I need to learn to "measure twice, cut once" rule with curtain rods. But I digress.
Joann's, a place which I usually hate going to, had a really big sale this weekend. Almost everything was 50% off. I went in to get a spool of pink thread and came out with bolts of fabric, curtain rods, cutting boards, batting and who knows what else. In addition to finding curtain fabric, I also found fabric to make the crib bumper and bed skirt with. . . and if it's not pattern over kill, a cushion for the toy chest as well. I don't have fabric for the quilt/blanket yet, but I'm thinking that in a land where it rarely get's below 60 degrees, that we just might not need one. Why not just use those footie pj's?
Despite all the frustration w/ the curtains, I am quite happy with how they turned out. I really love the texture and color variation in the brown fabric. I took a picture, but it really doesn't do the fabric any justice (can't believe I just said that about something that I got at Joann's)
