I'm thrilled with the results... the picture isn't much, but they are simple and just right for the room. They warm it up a bit and make it look more finished. I followed this video from the HGTV website. Super easy... but extremely boring. This is the kind of sewing I just despise. All that measuring, long seams, pressing. Arg. Tedious. Monotonous. And dull. In fact it's so dull, while I was sewing I tried to think of more synonyms for "dull."
I also listened to several episodes of Fair Game podcasts. Love love love that show. It's so witty and interesting.
Now that I'm done with skirts (Thanks for all your enthusiastic compliments!) and curtains for the moment, I'm working on this.
