Playing Decorator


I twisted my knee and have been spending some time with my leg up watching my new TV, and knitting. Most of the daytime offerings that I found entertaining are the decorating shows. For a while I thought I had finished my bedroom, but new ideas began to form.

Beginning with a single plaid king size sheet that I got for $5 at the resale shop, I made a duvet, window coverings and then a pillow case, table cloth and then TV remote holster.




I hung my pink/green quilts in the viewing corner.

And then I made a window 'board' for my domed window. I found a piece of styrofoam in the garage and cut it to fit snug in the opening, against the glass. Then I cut batting, lining and the pink and made a covering. I had to hand stitch it closed because the pink was so skimpy. I was lucky I had just this little piece left from covering my headboard last year. I pinned the little Stawberry Street quilt onto it first. Dopey but better than plain. It really keeps out the light from the streetlight at night. I wasn't really happy with this choice so I used my remaining sheet scraps for this quilt, incorporating coordinating colors from that sheet.

Pink Pine

Hand dyed and commercial cottons, fused, hand and machine embroidered and quilted.
