The curtain problem
My sister sewed a beautiful set of curtains for my huge living room windows when we bought our house. After 15 years, the pull cord broke. The rods had serious bending issues, too. I could have studied a YouTube video to figure out how to restring them, and bent the rods back into a normal shape, but I decided to remodel them instead. Restringing would have have cost less, except in time and frustration, a lot of time! Recently I had seen some curtain styles I liked a lot. Since I love the pattern and colors of my curtains, and they still looked nearly new with no fraying, fading, stains or tears on them, I started plans for upgrading them to slide curtains with heavy duty rods that could hold weight better.
Curtains for my husband, Paul
My husband had daily fights with the curtains because he usually opens and closes them. Getting him on board was easy. Next week, I’ll show the part he did, and the rest of the sewing. In the meantime, we had to take a break for DVBS.
