Introduction: New Curtain for My Son's Old House, With the Help of My Grand Daughter

Picture of New Curtain for My Son's  Old House, With the Help of My Grand Daughter

My son bought a ruined house in the old historic centre of Porto. Being an architect he decided to rebuild it, and moved from London to our home town (when I first found the house and suggested him to buy it,  that was my purpose, to  make him comeback... )
The little house is now so cozy , and as i feel i have some responsability in the process, I decided to make something with my hands. Well, I love to make crochet, but usually it looks very feminin.  So I made this curtain, to the front window, so that he can see the narrow street, get all the sun light , have some privacy trying to give it a modern non-feminin look.
The pattern just emerged as the work was beiing done. I tried to represent the spiderwebs the house had, the irregular stone, even the woodworms nests...
My granddaughter help me putting the courtain in place.
