So you’ve heard me mention Thistlewood Farm before. She is the one that explained the awesomeness of drop cloth drapes.  They are amazing.  Under forty smack-a-roos!  Can you believe it?  I owe her some major gratitude. Because of KariAnne……I now go up into our master bedroom…and stand and stare at my new drapes.  They are pretty much amazing. What a wonderful Spring Break project…right Mr.?  Honey…..honey…did you hear me?  😉

Also…to the MIL…who was right there by my side…until the very end of the drape making…right until my old Singer died a slow death.  Then MIL whisked them off to her house and finished the last few stitches.  What a woman.  Gave birth to the most wonderful man on this earth…and finished my drapes. ( Several years apart. lol!)  Give that woman a trophy!

I’m gonna let the pictures do the talking for a bit.  You are welcome.  (I’m guilty of skimming the wording too. 😉 )

I whisked my camera off of the tripod...then left the tripod right in the way...but it was a good shot...so...there ya have it. ;)

Note to self: When you take your camera off of the tripod…move said tripod…because chances are…it could be a really good shot that you will use anyway.

So…that is the tale of my drop cloth drapes.  If you want to know all about how to make them and the scoop on the rods…you can find it here.  They are just what I wanted.  They are farmhousey…..and that makes me smile.  Have a great day, Dirt Road Folks! (If you see a painter walking by…try to bargain with him if he has a clean drop cloth!)
