Part 2 of curtains - The panels

 The side panels took a whole day and evening to finish them. Simon put up the old sheers to see how they moved in the background. They move perfectly and the front curtains do not move at all.

You can not see the sheers in the back when they are opened. The curtains cover them perfectly.

They do not seems like they would take this long to sew, but it did take all day. The are long and heavy to sew. But my new Janome Memory Craft 8200 did not struggle one bit. There is NO WAY we could have sewed this with my Singer Esteem.

 But look at the results. They are worth it.
 Now I can't wait to do the sheers. We will have to do when the kids are not around, or asleep. With Easter and all the chocolate that may be hard!

Simon basking in the glory of his efforts!
