well, they're finally done.
after MANY days of measuring, measuring again, cutting, more measuring; then fitting and sewing, and more sewing my wife finished the new drapes for the bedroom area on our 22' ccd.
the original drapes were white and thin and did nothing to block out the light. now we have new, fully lined drapes that do the job.
this was her second major project. she also re-did the cushions for the dinette area as seen in the second photo.
as we are finding out - it takes some effort to put your own stamp on your AS in order to make it really your own.
