There's been a run on scallops. That is, I've done my second scallop project in a month. Normally scallop projects are years between. In July it was the lavender scalloped drapery lead edge, for August it was a scalloped bottom for a Roman shade.
If I have to draft a third scallop job in September, I'll start to wonder if I missed the memo from the Organization of Scalloped Edgers. And if fifty folks come in and order scallops, I'll believe that it's a movement. And all you got to do to join, is start drafting those scallops- thank you Arlo!
Drafting scallops: stuff I learned from my momma.
She didn't teach me to draft scallops, per se, but she taught me how to use a grid and points and lines; compasses and squares and straightedges. I was a very little girl. I kept her company when she made posters for church or school events, and she explained every step of her process. My mom could make anything.
The shade was strung with mesh tube shroud, cord idler pulleys, and a cord lock. Sorry no picture of it on the stand.
