Curtains to Block the Sunshine

I've been meaning to sew curtains for our backyard canopy for awhile now. Every time we ate dinner out on the patio the setting sun would blare straight into our eyes.
Here's Mochi giving a mediocre demonstration.

I purchased curtains from Ikea that were on sale for $7 a pair!

I had to do a bit of hemming and I also added velcro to the tabs in order to hang them from the canopy.

Now we can sit and enjoy without the sun in our eyes. Again Mochi giving us another poor demonstration.

I love how the curtains "frame" our tropical garden!

"But Nature cast me for the part she found me best fitted for, and I have had to play it, and must play it till the curtain falls."

Nice handy work! I think Mochi did a fine job demonstrating.
