Just finished cutting the fabric for my bedroom window valance. Finally! And do you know why I was procrastinating? It's such a stupid reason - I was afraid that this was the sort of fabric that it's hard to tell the right side from the wrong side. Duh - look at it! I finally unfolded it this morning (why didn't I just have a look at the bedskirt is beyond me) and it's printed checks rather than woven. See, it's all just another symptom of my fear of success - but that's another story. I bought two yards of sixty-inch fabric, so I cut it in half the long way and I'm going to stitch the ends together to make a 120-inch self-lined valance. I'm using a wide pocket rod, so I'm leaving a couple of inches at the top for a ruffled effect. I have a client coming by at one or I'd be in the bedroom stitching this fabulous window treatment up! I am going to get it done tonight and hopefully get both the bedroom and office valances and rods hung next week - film at eleven. One of these days. Soon.
