Time To Finally Make Curtains

Time sure does fly and once again it's been weeks since I've shared any Coffee Cup news.  Now that the Blue Ridge Rally and Kentucky Bourbon Trail Caravan are over, I can finally turn some serious attention to The Cup!

This week has been all about making curtains.  I've known for a long, long time what kind of curtains I wanted and the material I would use.  In fact, the inspiration came from my very first Sisters on the Fly trip to Tybee Island, GA two years ago.  I bought a coffee-themed pillowcase there and later got the exact materials in the pillowcase through several fabric and quilt shops online.

I cut all the pieces out months ago in preparation for this week of sewing.  Sometime along the way, I decided to use a fourth coordinating fabric for the back lining.  I don't have a photo of that fabric to show you, but you'll see it when I tell you about the tie-backs that I'm also making.

Before leaving Michigan, I had Tony attach my curtain rods because I knew I'd be so reluctant to do it myself.  The thought of putting screws into that new birch made me a bit light-headed . . . LOL.  I found the perfect rings for the rods at Bed, Bath, & Beyond.

I won't keep you waiting any longer to see those new curtains! Here they are . . . 

As soon as I snap a few photos of the back windows around the bed, I'll share those with you too.

Thanks for stopping by to get a bit of Coffee Cup news . . . sorry you had to wait so long for an update.  If you are camping this long holiday weekend, have fun, and remember . . .
