UFO No More

I am trying to clear out some of my longtime WIP's on my days off, one of which was my new curtain. I've had it finished for awhile but had to decide how to attach it and add the lining. I finally got around to doing so, proving it was not a UFO (unfinished object) but rather a WIP (work in progress). Heh!
The difference between the two, BTW, is narrow but vital. One floats around your house haunting you forever (ultimately a UFO should perhaps be called an unfinishable object), whereas the other is eventually completed.

I don't care for the rod I have at all, but I suppose it will do. I need mounting brackets as it's hanging on the old rod for the vertical blind right now. I also need to steam it once I get it up there permanently.

It turned out reasonably well. There are of course things I would do differently if I had it to do over again. Experience is the best teacher after all.

oh happy day
when I threw the plastic slats from the vertical blind away!

Wow vertical blinds are the worst and have replaced by awesomeness! More blue and red, eh? so what would you have done differently?

Actually it is blue with brown, as all the moulding in my room is a dark mahogany.
I would have torn out the one seam I did wrong so that the three blocks that had the lightest blue were not clustered together (draws your eye right to that spot and drives me crazy). I also would have used this fabric for the top.

Thanks for the awsomeness comment BTW. :)

No one has ever tried to subvert me (at least not in that way). I do sometimes amuse myself by trying to write (legibly) with my right hand. Of course, my handwriting isn't that legible even when it's left-handed. But I attribute that to the right-dominant way of writing. (No, really.) (Okay, joking.)
