We moved into our house in July 2001.
We put lovely green leather recliners in the Library, across from the lovely fireplace with the green tile.
Ever since then, I've been trying to find window treatments for those windows. As much as I love the bright sunshine, and the view of my lovely yard, it gets a bit too much in the afternoon when the sun is shining straight in.
I've looked at more curtains that I want to think about. Finally, I decided to knit curtains for these windows. And thus began the odyssey that is Dwarrowdelf.
Now, I'm making wonderful progress on these curtains, but look at those windows again. We're talking 84" long panels. In lace. And they're wide too. Even moving apace, I doubt there will be window coverage until next fall.
Golf Pro, who spends a lot of time in this room, has been very patient. But as all the other work going on in the house, he began to wish that his space could be put on the list for improvements. Finally, he asked that window coverings for those windows be next,
After I got over feeling sorry for myself for having devoted so much time and effort into curtains, I started looking (again). This time, I found something completely different. (And no, we' are NOT going into a Monty Python Sketch here).
Window fim. That's different.
It doesn't quite achieve the sun block out goal for the half-round, but I still harbor a fantasy that I'll be able to work out some sort of miracle with the extra bits we have left over. If that doesn't work, I've got a plan for a half-round curtain to match the Dwarrowdelf Panels. I'm still thinking that they will work on these windows, even with the cool "stained glass".
If not, well, the dining room windows are the same size ....
We're both very pleased.
