I may or may not have had to drill more than the required number of holes:
But look how squarely the curtain hits the floor!
For those who asked, this fabric looks rich and luxurious, perhaps like silk, but this is the stuff you can get for $13 a panel, so obviously it isn't... rich or luxurious or silk or even silky. It smells kind of funny, and feels like umbrella fabric.
Its biggest flaw, however, is that I photograph terribly against it, completely washed out and pale. And for that reason, the burgundy umbrella fabric went back to Target, and I equipped myself with some gold-speckled sheers from Linens-n-Things:
Fortunately, I don't have to reinstall the curtain rod to work with the length of these new curtains. I'm still testing them out, deciding if I like seeing them every day, if I like the way I photograph against them, but they definitely smell better than the burgundy ones.
Now, who's going to clean the mess I made?
Knitting news: lots of scheming, no knitting. Ouchie is in control at the moment.
