Bedroom Make over Part 1

PART ONE: I look at my bedroom...and what do I see....dark colors that are getting the best of me...oh how could that be!!Okay, that's where my poem ends....Giving some though to what I really want...This room is full of sunshine (when the sun is shining) you would never know it by looking at the picture.. I love bright colors ~ creams, burgundy and green are my favorite....As I thought about these colors it came to me....when I lived in Iowa I visited a shop that sold pre-quilted fabric tops...remembering I had purchased some of this fabric ....I hurried to my sewing room and dug through my totes until I found what I was looking for....
I ran back upstairs and to my room and laid the material out on my bed...Oh, I loved the colors much more than the browns...it brighten up the room with color! Lets see now....I have enough to make a quilt and even some shams...What do I need to do? You guessed it!!

I now am in the middle of hand quilting my quilt for my bed....I quilt while watching my favorite TV programs....I quilt while doing laundry....I quilt while talking on the telephone....and I use my quiet time to quilt...hate to give up quilting time to fix our meals, but I do...My fingers are crippled up from so much quilting....but I'm in a hurry I have a deadline to meet...I want this project to be done before June....so I can display my work proudly when family comes to visit...So the point to this entry for this week is.... I'll not be able to be working on any other project or attending link parties until I get this quilt done...Just thought I'd give an update as to why I gone...I will of course update you from time to time...here's my project on my frame....It's nice to get another quilt top out of my tote....

  3. Hi Lois,
    Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog today! I applaud you for hand quilting. I plan to machine quilt mine, someday. My dad even built an awesome frame for me to put my machine on. Too many projects, you know? I love those cards you made too. How crafty you are!!

  10. I actually love the old colors too because it's different from everything we have at our house. But I think the makeover is going to be great! I used to have a quilt on my bed with dark green/red colors. It's a great color combination! Thanks for linking up with me for Friday Favorites!
