Because I know you’re fascinated…
I have one window shade almost complete. However, the instructions failed to mention the critical need for several pieces of hardware (eyehooks and a cord holder, namely). So I must go BACK to Hancocks and/or Home Depot to obtain these.
Just as well, since the imbecile who cut out the 4 yards of blackout fabric for me only cut 11 feet. Which leaves me with, um, significantly less than I actually need. So I have to get more of that, too. I have enough to finish the shades for Alice’s room, but not enough for Helen’s window.
I also need to go get polyester thread so that the rings are attached to the shade with something a bit stronger than cotton quilting thread.
Looks pretty good, though. I’ll post a photo when I’m fiiiiiiinally done. Sometime next April.
SO. In honor of Anjali, I will be installing contractor bags over Alice’s windows for the next few nights to keep her room DARK.
