Window treatments

Tina over at Seaside Stitches posted about a challenge to sew every day in July. I accept! Today I finished some valances in my kitchen. First, though, is the modified roman shade in my breakfast nook. This Waverly toile fabric was gifted to me quite a few years ago by my friend Ellie, and all it needed was some lining fabric. 

The shade almost fully down. Can you see my dog in the lower left? He's checking for squirrels at my bird feeder!

I hang the shade from a rod and have screw eyes in the frame of my window. I know it's supposed to be attached to a block of wood, which is then screwed into the wood frame, but even though these are replacement windows, my window frames are OLD, and don't like too much screwed into them!

This is one of two tie-up valances. The ribbon came from JoAnn's yesterday with a 40% off coupon and an extra 15% for the teacher card. I'm thinking of painting the kitchen yellow, but that will have to wait.
