Adding a little "passementerie" / New Jersey / Oct. 2007

When I fixed up my office 18 months ago, I began sewing these curtains and hung them even though they weren't hemmed. I finally decided how to finish them and have been sewing by hand and adding trim. I find that I enjoy the zen of hand sewing. The irregular stitches. The needle pricks. The feel of the fabric. When I make curtains I usually start out with some idea in my head and then figure it out as I go along. A little embellishment is just what these curtains needed. (Passementerie is the French word for elaborate trimmings or edgings.)
