Murhpy's Law implies that if there are really good quality curtains in the house you move into, then you are probably going to hate them with a passion.
Such has turned out to be the case here.
So in order to fit within my re-decoration budget which is nil, I decided to use my embroidered tablecloth collection to make curtains. I wonder what Grandma would think.
The one on the left includes a tablecloth she embroidered.
I am pretty pleased with the way the way they turned out. I think they suit the house.
Just need a few more to do the other window. Good old Trade Me should do the trick.
I didn't know my Grandma very well. I only met her three times.
She died when I was in my early twenties, so I actually have quite few bits and pieces that belonged to her.
All my Grandmothers were accomplished handcrafters, but my Grandma Auss was the most accomplished. Especially at embroidery.
I think she would have approved of the "make do and mend" aspect of my new curtains.
