After a weekend spent on the sewing machine (which involved more unpicking than I'd care to admit!) I have finished the Roman blinds for the bedrooms.
I used the fabric that I posted about here and because I had quite a bit I decided to use it in both rooms. The fabric was previously a pair of curtains so it was no easy job converting them into blinds.
The finished articles are perhaps not as crisp and precise as a professional would have done them, but I like to think that their rustic-ness just adds to the charm! I also have some fabric left over, seat cushions for the dining room perhaps?
