Going green ;)
This year, I am making new curtains to cover the open shelves in my room. During the school year, these shelves hold extra work materials, feast materials and other miscellany. I cover them to eliminate visual distraction (tension rods work nicely), and I had cut down some white sailcloth curtains. The sailcloth *never* looked pressed even when I ironed vigorously (not my favorite activity). The new ones complement my green/blue/earthy scheme, and are made of Symphony Broadcloth ($4 a yard). I look forward to the children’s discovery of these new things when they return next week!
