New Curtains!

We have new curtains! Jakki and I have been laying awake at night because of the brilliant arc-lamp across the street. Today, we decided to make curtains to solve the problem. The blinds would have worked, but the cats tend to bend them trying to get a view out the window. So we went to the fabric store and picked out a neat flamingo and tree pattern. Then we came home and sewed them up-- actually Jakki did all the hard stuff, I just downloaded the sewing machine manual and measured things. Here are some pics of the end result (we are quite proud):
