Curtains for a family who have to move during lockdown.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  
 The fabric was a length from stash, the lining a short piece of sheeting from stash.  I had the tape and a jar of hooks.

 Had to rely on my friend to measure the window. Showed her the fabrics I had (from 2m away) and she picked this one.
Got 3 widths from the piece, so plenty for 1.8m window. Had to wash it first because of a dust mark on the fold, so it became softer and matching was more difficult. Had to hem by hand because I couldn't get a good match of thread and it showed through a bit on the machine stitch.
So far only the picture of the leftovers, because I had to put them out for her to collect when they were passing so couldn't get a picture in time. I'm going to ask her to send me one, if she isn't too busy getting sorted - you can't have anyone to help at the moment. Should get one before the deadline.
(The bits are just about enough for a cover for OH's triangular pillow.  Maybe cushion covers from the blue. On to the scrap challenge!)

@Manuela Sorry, not yet. Have asked for one but she is not answering the phone at the moment. I think she is very down. What time is the cut off point? Hurray, just got one.

Got the picture finally. The curtains are a bit light for me, but my friend is pleased.
