FTGH: Curtains

I have a lot of surplus-to-requirement curtains. For some reason, people keep giving them to me and, for some even stranger reason, I keep accepting them. I really am never going to get around to cutting them up and using them for some other purpose.

They come in all different sizes, large to small. Mostly in the green / rust / beige palette, but not all. A couple of William Morris prints, I think a set of 4 for bay windows, many are lined. All are in reasonable or better nick.

Can anyone make use of any of these before I send the lot off to a charity shop? Postage would be prohibitive, but there is always the DS courier network (plus the Fibre Frenzy / Skillshare coming up).

I don't really mind if you want them to cut up or as curtains, but if anyone does have a bare window in need of covering, let me know the measurements and I will see what I have.

Hold on a mo. I shall return...

This is one of a pair. 47" drop x 42". Lined. Blackthorn design



Still looking for the other set!
judith

And the old favourite - ??? lily.



1 pair 45" x 45"
1 pair 45" x 90"
Both sets unlined.

I always put the drop as the first measurement.

Could I relieve you of those (sorry, the lily ones) for a donation to charity Judith?

Umm. Could I please have the top ones? For the spare room. Probably. judith

No problem. Both sets of the Golden Lily one?

Most certainly. Very Happy

I'll take some photos of the other ones as well.

Yes please ... to both sets. Not sure about Fibre Frenzy.

We are going to Skillshare, so could they come with Mochyn then - if you don't mind hanging on to them?

Anything lined with a 60" min. drop? The pole is 65", not sure what width I need for that.
I'm fed up of street light glare Sad

Will have a look. Very Happy

In the meantime, here are two single curtains.

Single curtain. 53" x 45" unlined.


Door curtain, Ikea fabric, 81"-ish x 50", lined (slightly loath to say goodbye to this one, but it has got to go).

mochyn

Isn't one of those supposed to go over that doorway upstairs?

thanks for the curtains, though!
judith

Isn't one of those supposed to go over that doorway upstairs?

No, that hasn't been made yet!
mochyn

Why am I not surprised? Wink judith

GZ, there is this one - a bit chintzy, but quite cheery as a temporary measure:



One pair is 70" x 85", lined
One pair is 42" x 44", lined

I also have tie-backs for both.

I have to go out now, but will probably post some more tomorrow evening.
Chez

I'm looking for two pairs of width 54 drop 51 minimum to match or contrast with gold-y sort of colours.

She said, hopefully.
