Well, it took me longer than expected to stitch these new curtains up. The buffalo check print wasn't square. Ack!
Since I'm not an expert sewer, I basically flew by the seat of my pants to make them look as straight as I could.

What a difference in the beautiful, natural light that streams in now!! YaY!!! The kitchen looks so much bigger, too. Double YaY!!

My only concern is the length at the sink window. They are level with the faucet handles. I should shorten them seeing mine and my hubs occasional dirty mitts will eventually get those clean, crisp curtains all cr*pped up. Maybe at the sill would be wise.
I'll pin them up to see if I like how they look.

I even have enough fabric leftover to make a valance for the powder room window off the the kitchen.

Overall, I'm extremely pleased with how they came out.
Buffalo check makes me smile!!

Happy Wednesday, all!

Thank you kindly, ladies! I can't stress enough how wonderful all the natural light is now! It's amazing. As much as I love my black/tan homespun curtains I made previously, these make the kitchen so much cheerier. It was definitely worth the occasional cursing (and bleeding from pin pricks) I did as I made them. I'm surprised none of you heard me. ((giggle)) ;> )
