Elation and frustration!

I'm elated because I finally finished a curtain panel that I started several years ago! I'm frustrated because I can't figure out how to add pictures to my blog! I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually, and it might help if I tried in the morning when I'm more alert!

I decided to crochet curtains for my living room, but quickly changed my mind and decided to decorate the bathroom window which is much smaller! I tend to start large projects and then abandon them when the process becomes routine, so this is quite an accomplishment for me! I started the second panel about an hour ago. My goal is to finish and hang the curtains by the time my parents visit in mid-July.

My friend Denise is also crocheting curtains. Hers is a much larger undertaking for the cottage she and her husband have on the Kankakee River. When I saw how much Denise was able to accomplish, I was determined to finish my much simpler pattern!

I found a beautiful basket edging at Vintage Tatting, which I've started making in size 30 Cebelia. The pattern looks difficult, but I was amazed at how quickly I caught on to it. Once the first pattern repeat was finished, I didn't need to refer back to the pattern!


  1. The best way to add pictures is to use a picture hosting site like
    I am assuming that you already have a digital camera? These sites are very user friendly and will walk you through the process of posting your pictures. Looking forward to seeing those curtains.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
