Curtains of Desire – Episode 4

“Finally, you enter a big department store’s fabric sale. Feeling very tired, you offer up a little prayer.  And my sister unearths a roll of linen …

… with a butter yellow background, birds, flowers in coral, a little pink frog or two … and leaves the exact colour of your carpet 

The moment of truth is that you need 11 metres and there are just 11 metres left on the roll. Voila! Very happy and tired, you return home … with my sister and niece carrying a very heavy parcel.”

“And when she suggests you come with her and your granddaughter on a trip to the nearest big city one hundred miles away, your first reaction is that you can’t do it. All that traipsing around … You must have been about 80 at the time, Mum.”

But then you think … Ah. Curtains, and off you go. You search and search … but in all the city you cannot find the material you so want.”

“It’s very cold outside and you look at your curtains, thinking – “life is passing me by and I can’t stand them any longer”.

My sister brings you a sample of fabric from the nearest town – “Butter yellow linen with peonies” – just what you want.”

“You choose the paint and can’t sleep that night for thinking how you will redecorate your room.”
