Look at our sad, sorry curtain tie-backs. Aren't they pathetic? In the past, when the end loop has broken through, I just trimmed it and used the next row down. Over the years, they've broken so many times that I couldn't trim them anymore. Everyday it was an adventure just trying to find a loop that was still intact so I could open the curtains.
Finally, Sadie and I worked together to fix the problem. It took us an hour, maybe two at the most. Oh, what a difference! We should have done this months ago.
