Since I wrote the last post, I have been steadily working on a queen-size bed spread for my daughter. It has been a larger scale project than I usually undertake, but I am happy with the results. It is pictured here in my bedroom with the purplish colored walls…. her soft cocoa walls will set it off much better. In the pictures below, more or less for my own journal, a step by step process is detailed. Feel free to click away to more interesting content online if this does not interest you. 😮
