When I saw the grain sack ribbon with blue stripes
in Ann's shop, Sutton Place Designs,
the wheels in my head started turning.
In consultation with Ann, she agreed that the ribbon
would make great tiebacks for my curtains
in my newly painted family room.
But she warned me about the difficulty
of tying a bow using a grain sack ribbon.
All the while I'm thinking...how hard can it really be?
Well let me tell you...Ann was right, it's very HARD!
I won't tell you how long I wrestled
with that ribbon until I got it to look like a bow!
This is not a task for the faint of heart.
In fact you might even want to first have several cups of coffee...or
something even stronger...and clear your calendar so you're not in a hurry.
But I have to say, in the end it was worth all the effort.
I love the punch it adds to these curtains...especially
with spring on its way.
Come to think of it...
I don't think these babies are ever coming off
no matter what the season.
So, Ann, how did I do?
Have a great day!
