It's curtains for me

I finally made it to Dunelm to look for curtain fabric, I immediately found exactly the sort of thing I was looking for.


 This is for the bedroom curtains, I'm not sure if you can see but it is little white stars I wanted something with a small print so there isn't too much wastage when matching the pattern.
 This is for the living/dining area curtains plus 2 quilts to fit between the doors and the glass of the side hatches, they will cut down the draughts in the winter. This is a slightly darker blue with small white spots, another small pattern to save on wastage.
I have a good eye for colour, not for putting them together, but I can shop for fabric that needs to match something I already have and I can pick the correct colour.
I bought some 2 inch header tape, I think 3 inch would be too deep for such small curtains and 1 inch doesn't have enough body.
These are two of our neighbours, Pancake and his wife Orange Sauce!

I shall have an early night tonight, I have a sore throat and I'm wiped out, we don't have any grandchildren staying this weekend, I need a rest and it wouldn't be fair on them to have them over and not give them a good time.

Get well soon Hester .
Only a few months and you'll be free at last .
There is a career waiting for you if you get bored , you would be a perfect house declutterer although only as the brains as I reckon you've shifted enough physically for a number of lifetimes !

That fabric is perfect , don't know if you ever saw my post on mse but that was what I was thinking of when I mentioned Dunelm .
Take care and be good!

That looks really sensible material for matching Hester. Look forward to seeing the finished articles.
