Hahaha - yes they can!
Little Red got some new curtains today. I like sewing in my holidays - back to work Monday.
Love them. Red and white just works with most patterns. The wires are good for the top and for getting the look when they are stowed, especially on the little splitty windows, but we have found for the bigger bay bus windows using wire in the bottom works better loose on the outside to hold the curtain against the bottom of the window/frame rather than sewn in. Easier to stow as it doesn't bunch as much. Even if you make the slot huge you still end up with issues with a big lump of fabric, and getting them open to abuse the possums ransacking your fridge and food containers in the middle of the night is entertaining.
Got another week and a bit off starting Thursday. Not sure if I will have much to show for it though.
Yes I agree it works for these little squares but not on the bay - we leave the bottom free in the bays and use a magnet to hold it in place.
I know where to come when I’m ready for window coverings
They look great Melissa
Thanks Bernie - hardest part is picking fabric you like!
You have done well picking fabric,bringing the outside colour inside works well.Complements the bus or the curtains
Love the curtain fabric, new ones are on the list, good inspiration
That’s tops Melissa!
Curtains look lovely
Little Red is now on Historic rego - Shannons dropped her excess from $350 to $300 and my monthly premium went down by about $20
cant bring myself to let the original plates go ,wish you could keep your plates and not have to use those silly looking little ones
For the difference in price, I LOVE my silly little plates. Especially with four Historic regos, the savings are HUGE
Hi Lorraine i could certainly learn to love the savings considering the low mileage i do but i still have the original plates from new,cant see why we couldnt keep keep them and transfer to historic rego,dont understand why the historic rego plates are smaller they just dont look right
I put my KOM81Y plates on my Touareg.
Well Rob, you should not have parked your kombi on the street the other night and had someone steal your plates!!! Oh no!! Now you will have to get some new plates!!
There are also D plates - which is when you car is even only slightly modified from original - they are a bit more normal looking - but still ugly.
got it Melissa might have to park it on the road because we have visitors,no cant do it but thanks
Agree, they are very small - but they have a matching price tag - $46 per year including greenslip is awesome!
$2/wk for custom NSW plates. Peasy. Parked off street so no theft.
In sunny Victoria the classic plates are normal large size with numbers and H. ie 97125-H. There was some discussion about being able to keep original plates but nothing eventuated so far. Pre historic plates on Schmett had original numbers but with green colour and a Slim Line on the front. Fitted just right on the bumper.
