When In Rome

If you ever decide to make Roman shades, don't use plastic rings or rope with nylon in it as the mechanism to raise and lower them.  The plastic gets brittle from the sun and breaks and the rope shrinks in the sun.  I've been replacing the broken rings (again!) with new brass ones and have some cotton rope to use next time I string them.  Like it wasn't enough work to sew all the rings on once!
