I washed all the curtains and the linings were so old and worn that they have disintegrated in several places - more work. Then the fag of sewing all the buttons back on. Why, oh why did I chose such a complicated design? They do look pretty though.
So a trip into Solihull on several buses (I got on one going the wrong way and got lost) and into John Lewis to try and buy some more lining, but they don't sell the blue stuff there - so I might need a trip to London. Any excuse.
