With Winter approaching we took advantage of Karen’s parents visiting to enlist Anne into curtain making duties. We managed to get the entire house sorted, including four roman blinds – quite an effort. As chief measurer and cutter I can take responsibility for any imperfections (not that I could find any) and it was great to pick up a few sewing pointers on the way. I managed to whip up a few draft stoppers for some of the draftier doors.

The fabric was snaffled in Auckland on sale by Anne and it’s thermal lined so should make a big difference to winter warmth with some of our big windows. A huge thanks to Anne and Dave for paying such a productive visit.

The finished curtains (well some of them).
