This new client knew exactly what she wanted (bless clients like that!), and would be providing the fabric. She wanted me to copy this style of valance for another room:
I measured last week and did the install this afternoon, and it came out looking quite nice.
The second window. The valances were trimmed in braided cord, which really hates to bend and turn corners.
But it turned out well, and the client was happy.
She had also asked that I make a small pillow for the bed in that room. Since there wasn't enough trim for the pillow, I pulled the colors out of the trim and did this embroidery design. The swirls are from Embroidery Library, but with the "Welcome" generated with Embird's Font Engine. There's a zipper in the bottom edge.
It felt nice to do some paying home dec work again... Now I have some "pin money" for Puyallup!
