The valances are finally finished and hung. Trying to save myself money by ripping out the old glide tape was a wasted effort and only added to the time it took to complete these guys. The old glides were on an elastic tape which kept wanting to bunch up the fabric. Ripped out what little I'd sewn and purchased new tape which has the firm, no stretch tape and it worked like a champ. Now on to finish the cushion covers which are the same fabric as the valances. Old valances new valances New cushion covers. Going to tighten the fit on the bottom one a bit, already tightened the top.
