I had a long rather boring entry all typed out here and one slip of the finger and it all disappeared. I guess that was the sign that it was too long and boring for you to have to read thru, so I’ll just shorten it up.
We have never had a nice pair of permanent curtains on the window in the upstairs loo since we moved into this house back in January 1987.
Today I made a pair of curtains out of two very old white cotton sheets, given to me by my dear mother-in-law when they moved into their apartment from a large house. I just pulled out the old sewing machine, made two rows of stiches across the top (the twin sheets where folded in half with the folded end at the top), ironed them, and hung them at the window.
I am very satisfied with them now, and I feel a great sense of accomplishment now that my upstairs loo is fully dressed.
Paul installed that window new this winter, and he still has to paint it white, so after that, it will finally be complete.
Spring is only 5 days away, and these curtains are just the thing to get me in the mood to welcome her in.
