Roman blind

The only formal training I've had is an evening class in soft furnishings that I decided to take many moons ago.  I LOVED it!  I could *see* the finished article in my mind and the various stages of how we were going to get there.  I think it did help that we had an inspiring teacher too.  That's always a plus point.

After that course, I made this Roman blind for our previous house.  It hung in the bathroom and I added a cross-stitch border at the bottom to match the tiles. 

I love the whole process of tailor-making something; be it a dress, bag or some curtains. Why buy something off the shelf when you can make it yourself to your own specifications? Well, that's what I reckon anyway!
