To win, answer the following question in the comments section below:

Are you stitching (or crafting) a project for someone special this year? If so, what are you making?

    I’m trying to make some drapes for my Grandsons room. This is NOT a Christmas gift but I’ve been working on the for quite awhile. I’ve never worked with blackout lining before. It’s a learning curve. You don’t think about the simple act of sewing it together to make it large enough for the window puts holes in the blackout lining which lets light in nullifying the blackout! The next ones will be LOTS easier!
