 I've not got a lot on this week for a change so I'm working on a Roman Blind and Hall door curtain for my Son and Daughter in Laws house Those who follow me will remember I made a lot of curtains and  blinds last year and early this year. .I promised them a door curtain for this winter so looks like i'm just going to make it judging by the recent weather.
