Ironing My Little Heart Out

I'm 3/4 of the way finished with one panel of the drapes for my living room, and I'm tapping out and heading to bed.

Between getting wrinkles out and ironing the fabric to the no-sew bonding tape, I've been ironing off and on for about an hour and a half.

Ironing is not so exciting, but here's something I am excited about:  $4.00 Wal-Mart sheets as the lining of my drapery panels.  Twin sheets are 96 inches;  the perfect length for practically-as-tall-as-my-ceiling drapes.  The cheapest drapery liner I saw yesterday while shopping for fabric was $4.99/yard.  My sheets cost less than a third of what I would have paid for drapery liner.
