Another Step To My New Craft Room

Hello There,
The weather has been absolutely beautiful, I love being outside seeing everything blooming. I love this time of year.

I dropped off the card  today at the asisstant living facility when I went to visit my friend. The owner just loved the card & asked me if it was alright to display it where everybody could see. I said sure, it was for all the staff to enjoy. She also said that she wanted all the people that live there to see it, too.
Dosen't it make you feel good when you make a card,  it is so greatly appreciated, to the one that you had made it for, it cheers that person or persons up. Isn't that a wonderful feeling, I sure feel that way, what about you?

So, here is the next step to the designing of my craft room. I have only one window, but thank goodness the room is very bright. I wanted to make a curtain, that would give me some privacy cause its in front of the house near the road.
But I still didn't want to block the light & sunshine. I decided to make a light weight swag  for the top & a sheer tier on the bottom.
I love checks since they work well in a country decor & that's me, I'm a country girl at heart.
Don't you think that the curtains came out well & are just the right decor for my girly craft room?
In the one pic you will see some hook & loop, that will be for another project in the room, but using the same check material.

Supplies Used were,
Simplicity Home Decor pattern
4 yards of large checked cotton material from Moda
2 1/2  yards eyelet cotton lace trim
3 1/2 yards cotton sheer material from Moda
White cotton thread from Melrose which I purchased from HSN (wonderful thread to sew with)

Tell me what you think, do you like my idea or not? I would really like to hear your opinions, positive or negative opinions.
 Everybody has different taste in decor & that's great, but tell me how if it was your room, what type of curtain would you had made?
Or if you would of just used some kind of shade or blinds.

I'm really curious about how you would of done the window, if it was your room.
I love comments & would really love to hear from you.

I hope you had a wonderful & blessed day.
