I made these curtains over the course of more than 1 1/2 years.  At first I had done a very fast sew job on them and stared to embroider them.  I came to realize the embroidery was far out weighing the quality of the first sew job I had done. 

I picked all of the seams and stitches out of the curtains themselves and remade them to be more worthy of the time going into the embroidery. 



I posted more about the embroidery done on them over here in this forum:

And each design is shown and spoken about here on my blog:

I hope you like them because I love them!  Cheesy

I love everything about this.
I love that Mrs. Gnome's hair is grey.  I love the birdies nuzzling in their nest.  I love the circle things.
Also, I wish you sold things on etsy so I could buy them all.

Fab! These are curtains that kids would love...so much detail...something different every time you look. My faves are the gnomes! I wish I had the patience!

These are wonderful! I'm thinking of doing some for my kitchen window.  Have you opened your own curtain making business by now? Lol.
