Whoo-hoo! Grandma, you rock!
My grandma, not Sprout's (though his grandma(s) rock, too!). This is a close-up of the curtain panels sewn by my Grandma Soldano. When Jim was off salmon fishing at the beginning of September, I stayed in Bellevue for a few days. Grandma and I had a lot of fun (and a little frustration) picking out the fabric for Sprout's curtains, but they turned out SO well. I couldn't be happier. The blue and green panels are repeated at the bottom of the full-length drape, but on a smaller scale. It was a lot of work, and given the fact that neither Grandma nor I are all that great with numbers, we're lucky we actually ended up with the right amount of fabric (our first calculations would have resulted in enough yellow cotton to frame every window in my house. Hah! But we persevered, and it really makes the room. Kudos to you, Grandma. I love them, and I know Sprout will, too!
