I had this set of curtains which I was intending to use in the new dining room
but unfortunately the wallpaper that we have chosen doesn't match, so I've bought some new fabric for that room instead
which left me with a nice pair of full-length (unfinished) curtains going spare. After a chat with GM, we decided to use one of them across the front door, which, although it's double glazed and entirely weather- and draft-proof, still looks a bit like a black hole at night. As he's in charge of curtain rails, hanging etc, I left the problem of how and where to put it to him, and this is what he came up with . . .
. . . not bad, eh?
I don't know if anyone else out there makes their own curtains, but if you do, how do you finish your bottom hems? I like to hand-stitch mine (except for the lining, which I'm quite happy to do by machine), but pinning the length is quite difficult, I used the bedroom floor.
(yes, that's my foot on the left).
So that's one of the pair used, now where on earth can I put the other one?
