Sometime ago one of the blinds broke. We finally got around to getting it repaired, which required taking it down and to the repair shop. Alas, they did not have the necessary part and have had to order it. Not wanting to leave the window uncovered as it faces a busy street, we looked for a temporary covering and discovered a quilt that seemed just the right size to do the trick.
The next morning, the sun shining in the window gave us a lovely surprise. It appeared to be a stained glass window. It was so beautiful and cheery that I really almost hate the idea of taking it down when the blinds are repaired.
