Now, curtains are not my favourite item to sew, there being little room for creativity in their make up, but they were a necessary project. I'm not attaching a picture here but will showcase them once the craft room is complete - a before and after gallery.......
Day 2 arrived with a new project, craft room unrelated. Our new sofa required a further plump cushion for added comfort and I decided a little embellishment would be nice to add after yesterday's minimal curtains, so I decided on grey squares on a mauve background. Below is a step by step of my make:-

This is the design I wished to make - picture shows the cut pieces.
The second picture shows the shapes as cut. I folded a piece of square fabric twice (in half then in half again) and then cut a curve around the outside and a curve in the middle.
I ended up with this shape. After cutting another six shapes I pressed them flat and then arranged and pinned them onto the front piece of the cushion. I then zig-zagged stitched around the outside and inside of each shape.
The end result was:-
And here's a bolster I made with some taffeta flowers too:-
