mad for madras

I am thinking of getting new dining room curtains after Christmas....I was planning on getting the Stockholm Blad curtains, but based on yesterday's comments they may end up in my bedroom instead. Which leaves a gaping hole in my plans for the dining room.

But wait! I am slightly obsessed lately with these patchwork madras plaid curtains from PB Kids:

At $89 per panel they are out of my price range.  But what if I made my own? (I am all about buying too much fabric and hanging unhemmed fabric panels in my house.)  

There are a few options:




There are surprisingly few patchwork madras plaids out there.  Have you come across any?  What are your thoughts on patchwork madras--preppy hip or brings back terrible memories of 7th grade sleepaway camp?

Grandma and Nonno have arrived (yay!), and the joyous noise level here are reaching circus performance levels.  Wednesday afternoon we will be cooking up most of the side dishes and desserts for Thursday.  What's your favorite Thanksgiving dish?  I miss my grandmother's mashed potatoes, but I'll be making Uncle Mark's eggs and green beans dish.  And my inlaws make amaaaaaaazing stuffing.

Have a happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
