Stella's Tab Topped Curtain!

I really could not be more pleased with how this project came out - thanks to Fiona, disasters were averted and a bunch of quilting fabric and flannel became a nice new window covering for our little Stell.   I used a nice web tutorial from here, but had to amend it a little with Fi's help.    As with beading, I am learning that even when in a rush, it is better to rip out messed up work than try to hide it later.  Sigh.

Here is the window, during the day.  The yellow band glows a little in the sun and looks like a nightlight at dusk! 

My dad painted a picture to the right of the window, as he does for all new Petersen kids.  The cow loosely is based on a cool pop up book my mom found at the library.
