The curtain may not be conventionally beautiful but it represents hours of work, learning from Youtube, various frustrations and ultimately, satisfaction. I’ve made clothes since I was 14. I’ve been making curtains since I was 21 and furnishing our first flat but I have never made a box lined door curtain from velvet before and it was certainly a challenge. It now hangs from the rising portiere curtain rod that the lovely Mr S fitted last week in our sitting room and now, hopefully, we will be protected from the draughts.
I’ve made some more Eccles cakes, much loved by the aforementioned Mr S.
I have just finished reading the most magical novel, utterly entrancing and one which will be in my mind for some time.
