Some Much Needed Motivation

Ive been in a bit of a slump lately, my mind flowing with ideas but I have yet to actually sew anything!! Our new arrival has given me some much needed motivation:

Our new bed has finally arrived!! I love the country look of timber, theres so much warmth and character......a great contrast to our old brass bed! So Im thinking a new quilt, as much as I love the Double Delight, Id like something soft and pretty.

A new tablerunner or tablecloth for the blanket box.

And maybe some new cushions, an assortment of sizes......Oh Les is gunna love having to take them off every nite!! lol

I have a stack of April Cornells "Natures Chorus" which is just so pretty and soft. I think Ill use these for inspiration.

Look out studio, here I come!!


  1. Hi Rose. I'm looking forward to seeing your new quilt and bedroom accessories. Those fabrics are yummy so it will be gorgeous for sure.

  2. Sweetie, the new bed is gorgeous! Love that warm wood and those chunky posts. No wonder you were awaiting it so eagerly!

    Hope you have had some fun in the studio! Sounds like you have some plans for decorating your "new" bedroom ;o) Those fabrics you have picked are so yummy - I'm sure you'll come up with something lovely and perfect!

    Hugs and stitches from me

  6. Hi Rose!!

  7. Woohoo...I love the bed too, and will be watching for the makeover. Its fun to watch how one chance leads to another which leads to another.....
