Curtains for Miz Lizzie

This job has taken forever to get started. And an eternity to finish.

Somehow something more ‘important’ always seemed to get in the way. Anyhow, it’s done. Miz Lizzie is now adorned with her new curtains, and I love how they’re looking.

To remind you, here’s a before shot, showing the bunchy dark blue (and incidentally grubby and slightly niffy) curtains she came with.

I do love the new fabric, and feel that she looks fresher and less gloomy with them in place. I’ve also greatly reduced the volume of the net curtains behind them. I could probably do without the nets entirely, if it weren’t for the fact that they do stop people snooping through the windows, which is almost irresistible when strolling around in caravan parks…

It’s going to be a while till I get round to recovering those 1980s pinkish seat cushions with blue and white ticking, especially the backrest parts, but the quilts and cushions do a decent job of hiding most of that.

She’s looking smarter now, ready for our summer holiday trip in February. We’re heading back north, for another gastronomic tour: Townsville, Ingham, Cairns, the Atherton Tableland, Port Douglas and Mossman. We’ll be visiting all sorts of places for a taste of the tropics and a chance to sample freshly grown and produced delights. More on that when the time comes.

Now, what shall I work on next…?
