Preserve & Protect is layed out on my sewing table, here with the old draperies still in tact.
Here's how it now looks. Ahhhh, much cleaner lines, don't you think? That is as far down as the window treatments need to go, and during the morning hours, they are all the way up to the top!
Here's the old view, looking out on our lakeside patio:
....and here's how it looks now, with the new window treatments snugged up under the cornice board:
The "old view" looking out toward the pool patio (and our new fence courtesy of the Good News/Habitat Boys):

I did a lot of window washing, inside and out, before the men came to install the window treatments. Little did I realize that my equilibrium was still off, until I once again became very dizzy. The first time it happened, I was able to overcome it by just sitting still for about an hour. The next time was a different story, however: I was down and out with another severe case of vertigo that lasted for about 12 hours. Needless to say, I am still not over "the crud".
Yesterday I took it easy, finally getting to quilt on Preserve and Protect.
My self-imposed deadline for this piece is today...not sure that I will get it finished, but tomorrow I must begin packing up our kitchen for the great renovation to begin!
I am doing a bit of edge finishing similar to Terry Grant's method around various sections of the wall hanging. I found some lovely fibers at Fiber On A Whim last week, and these are very adaptable to P&P and Terry's method!
I see that Blogger has once again gone a bit crazy with the picture and text placement, but I don't have time to fiddle with it, so please just bear with me on this. I am delighted however that my pics are finally enlarging.......thanks Karen!!!)
