This just in: "Massive move halts all crafts!"

Sorry for the long pause here. I moved. As in "I have a lot of junk (a whole house worth) and had to move it all" move. :)

I love our new place. It's only a couple of years old and has so many modern features that our old house didn't. For example: A hell of a lot more windows. And some naked windows. I kinda have this thing about bare windows at night. I DO NOT want people to see in my house at night.

There are shades on the large windows just not on the front door ones. I've caught myself running past them at night. I'm such a wimp.

So I've started making curtains for the front door.

Nice and open. The side one you can see down the stairs into the craft room, not cool.
The top one you can see all the way into the kitchen which is in the very back of the house. Eep!

I made curtains for the side one that I put up with some adhesive Velcro. I didn't want to put holes in anything.
They turned out pretty good. I didn't want to block the great lighting we get from them so they are just sheer, but do the job at night.

I have made the top portion, but I don't have a solid way to set them up yet. The little pieces of Velcro worked for the small area on the side window but the top is a lot longer.
I also made those out of the sheer fabric.
And again I don't want to put holes in the wall. I've been thinking about something with a doll rod and Velcro. That should light enough to not weight it down too much.
