Xmas curtain preview

I love these Christmas curtains for my kitchen area. It's a café curtain set for the first window and two long curtains for the huge window with the sliding door to the backyard. The colour is just right and the embroidery is just divine, but the valance itself is too short... So frustrating. The window is too large so the valance feels stretched and doesn't give that relaxed look.

I've used them for years though, but this year I felt annoyed and took them down. We went out on a fabric hunt at the shops, cause hubby loves the curtains as well and didn't want to see them go. No matching fabrics anywhere... BUT then hubby spotted a plain, red, single curtain in a similar fabric, which will fit perfectly on both ends of the short valance and also on the bottom of the other two long curtains as well. Hurray Hurrah! Hubby saved the Christmas curtains - and it only cost us $15. Now we need to find time to add the new fabric, between Christmas Carols, School Graduation from Prep and Xmas Parties. Gee, this is a busy season. 

To be continued... ☺

  3. I can see why you'd work so hard to save them, the color and needlework are just beautiful! Glad you where able to come up with a solution. Can't wait to see what you came up with.
