Finished Friday, barely

I have 52 minutes left to get my finished friday post up.
These curtains were supposed to take less time than that (ignoring the ironing) – of course they didn’t. I mean seriously, the perfect size tablecloth (60″x84″ for a 36″ window with curtain rod installed 82″) plus curtain clips make for a fast set of curtains. Except when I tried the curtain clips the fabric pooled on the floor. Not good for this dog fur abundant household.
So I returned the curtain clips. Bummer. And machine basted in a casing.
Then I washed, dried and ironed the tablecloths, hung the first one back up and noticed…they shrank!
Back to Target for those curtain clips again.

whew, 35 minutes of Friday left.
