Carriebear writes: Greencollen, that is too funny. I stumbled upon your post of this and it made me laugh. I JUST finished my version of this SAME curtain last month! I did it using fabric and sewing it all (including all those crazy gathers!) and it almost made me crazy! Check out my blog post about it. Here is the link. Great job! Posted: 11:25 pm on August 28th
