    Hello Everyone,

    I haven’t written in for a long time because we sold our house we had
    lived in for 20 years, bought a “new” smaller and cheaper one, and moved
    in November. I’ve been so busy with the move and the holidays that I’ve
    barely had time to do anything else. The good thing about the move is we
    will be cutting our expenses by $300 to $400 a month, and so far I
    really love the new place!

    Now to my question: Our new house has mini blinds at all of the windows
    except the kitchen, but no drapes, curtains or valances! I’ve been doing
    a little catalog looking and the prices for window treatments are
    outrageous! I know how to sew, and I was thinking maybe I could make
    some of them.

    Does anyone know of any good websites with directions for
    making window treatments? Or do any of you have any suggestions for
    attractive but inexpensive curtains?

    I love this list, it is so full of great tips!
