The good news is that I have the two curtain panels finished except for the bottom hem and the tabs for one of the panels are ready to be attached. The bad news is that I managed to wrongly estimate the amount of fabric that I would need for the curtains, tabs, and tie-backs, so I'm stuck until more fabric arrives in the mail.
How did this happen, you might be asking. The answer is I have no idea, since I thought I had ordered a little more than I actually needed to avoid this exact situation. My best guess is that I somehow ignored the width of the fabric, which is a silly mistake. Nonetheless, the kitchen curtains will be delayed yet another week. Hopefully next Monday will see these things finished!
