I love the yellow brings out the yellow in the bird. But really don't care for the white

I love how it turned out. Rather than Attic Windows, I would say "A Peek into a Room" because the floral on the vertical side looked like wall paper to me.

I think it is beautiful.

I had a remnant of that fabric and made a wall hanging with it. After a few years, it now covers my big printer to keep it dust free.

Thank you, I do love it and I think the gal I want to give it to will as well.

It's going to be beautiful!

You might try using the wrong side of the brown to get a lighter shade for the window.

There are some other great suggestions here. What a supportive and helpful group!
