30 yards

Thirty yards of 118" wide fabric for sheers arrived on Monday (yep, a big jump in the $ spent and yardage in stats). I have my big project for the next few weekends! This will be for the living room (2 88" wide windows, 2 45" windows) and the dining room (1 96" window). Now I have to get some rods for the wide windows.

My friend Alysia works at Calico Corners, and she helped me figure the yardage and how to pleat them up. Making curtains is fairly easy, but I find it boring. Lots of long, straight cuts and stitching. Once I get them up, then I'll figure out the outer curtains. At least I'll have something up, I'm beginning to feel like I'm in a fishbowl when I sit in the living room!

Good luck with that. I HATE sewing sheers. You're right, sewing curtains is boring. Blah!
