I tried my hand at making curtains for our big, sunny kitchen window.

My inspiration came from this post over at Making It Lovely {fantastic design blog, btw!}. I had a bit of trouble with the fabric {something I'm planning on asking my expert seamstress/friend to sort out for me--betcha can't wait, Monica!}, but for now, they'll do.

Also, they make the morning light look especially pretty. And pretty light--when you're running on five broken hours of sleep and making a second pot of coffee--is gold, my friends. So I'm keeping the silly curtains.

Oh goodness that is GOREGOUS fabric! And I like they way they are more swoopy than the blog you linked too. I'd be happy to help if I can, but I really like the way these look already. In fact, you may have just solved my problem of what kind of window coverings to do on my front porch...and it is nap time...I better run and get my sewing on!
