Today I am sharing with you what must surely be the world’s longest curtains. Well, maybe there are longer ones. But these sure SEEM long. Here they are, on the left side of the foyer:
For the first seven years we lived here, the windows had no curtains. It was fine, but since it’s such a big space, they kind of needed … something. Thankfully, I have a crafty friend who could visualize something appropriate and help me make them.
It was a huge undertaking. I do quite a bit of sewing, but to make something on this large a scale was honestly a pain. Just laying out that much fabric, cutting it, ironing it, getting it through the sewing machine … let’s just say it’s not something I hope to repeat.
Oh, and that’s just half the work. Here is the right side of the foyer:
In this photo you can also see just a bit of the alcove on the left … that’s just over the front door, and you guessed it – there is a window with curtains there too, but it’s just a “short” one at 8 feet 🙂
