How I spent my Labor Day weekend.....

Started out with these...the tools of the trade.....I vacated my usual sewing area to be right in the middle of the action! And these lovely fabrics.....a gun-metal silver-grey with a subtle black slub which looks like silk but is really polyester.....and the white lining, nothing special there....

This is the "BEFORE" of 3 of the 6 full-length windows that run along the back of our home:
And here is the after, with 3 down and 3 to go:
Considering the initial quotes for blinds/shades for the 6 windows fell anywhere from $2000.00 to$4000.00, the roughly $350 I've spent for all 6 windows is right up my alley! And I must say, hats off to my husband Ken, who was my right hand on this project helping me with the measuring and the hardware installation. :-)
