Stencilled Curtains

Sharon spent virtually all day stencilling. She was trying to figure out the colors for the new stencil. First she practiced on paper...
Then she practiced on fabric...
Then she just went for it. It's pretty hard to blend oil paints exactly the same way three times in a row so there are subtle differences between the panels.Strictly speaking, these are temporary curtains, so Sharon won't be embroidering them. Jeff wants a more transparent fabric, or we may later put up roller shades; we still haven't decided. But these simple linen curtains will give us some privacy for the winter.
