Though I don’t think I’ve ever made a specific post about them, when we got new windows I went the cheap-n-easy route of using tension rods, curtain clips and tea towels as curtains. (You can see them behind Lloyd here.) They turned out to be the perfect size, and saved me a heap of bad sewing and fist-shaking.
Well, back in December Lloyd received a present in the mail from his Aunt Margie – a box full of tea towels that she had embroidered with different barns! It was accompanied by a lovely hand-written letter, a rarity these days. Lloyd admired them and then said, “They’re too pretty to use.”
I disagree. As tea towels, yes. As new curtains, no!
