Spring Cleaning

Today I was doing some tossing out. I came upon this old scanner. It almost made it to the trash until I remembered I needed a light box. I found the light stick among the garage mess. A pair made for each other! By the end of the weekend I intend to get my son to gut the scanner and install the light bar for a perfect light box.

pillow bracelet's

I was asked about the bracelet's by several people. While searching for quilted bed runners the matching shams were tied in by using strips of blocks. I'm trying to make my bed easy for the summer. I didn't want to deal with full shams every night to use the pillows.  I had strips of blocks left over from the runner so I decided to make them into "bracelet's" own name for them. They do look like bracelet's! I used a ribbon on the center and made it just a little smaller to pull the pillow in a little just for a different look. I used batting in these but I don't think they really need it. They close with velcro.

Here is Aprils Chicken just in time to lay some eggs for Easter Bunny.

Another look

When I went to put the runner on the bed this morning I noticed I had another look and even the pillow bracelet's when turned over matched. This look is actually more like the one in the hotel. Their runner was one piece floral.

Summer bed runner

I bought a new cotton blanket in blue and a dust ruffle for my bed to change it out for the summer. I can't find the bag with the newly washed new bed blanket and ruffle...hope I find it before the summer is over! So this is my winter green blanket with the new bed runner.

I like to tie the pillows in with the spread but I didn't want to deal with full sham's for the summer. I made pillow "bracelett's" for one feature pillow instead.
