I used to make my bed in the morning. I liked the way it looked and it brought a sense of beauty to  the bedroom. Then I read an article saying that one perspires at night and the sheets are damp in the morning, so leave the bed open to dry out.

Check out this link and you too may wait until afternoon to make your bed.  especially if you have allergies to dust.


Rose and Derek’s quilt

The quilt pattern is called Labyrinth.

It is quilted in the pattern of”Funky Fleur de Lys”. The batting is Hobbs cotton. The thread color is “tea rose’>

This is the first time I have made a queen-sized quilt. It is 92″ x 92”.

Rose picked out most of the fabric for the quilt from Rachel’s Quilt Patch in Staunton, VA.

I carried the quilt in my suitcase to Germany to give to Rose and Derek. Now if they will only make their bed so they can see it?
