I'm still here! And I've actually been accomplishing some crafting lately. Like this quilt. It's finally finished, completely hand tied and hand bound. Which I know probably sounds pretty simple to some of you, but was quite an accomplishment for me, what with the recent changes around here. Once I figured out how to work this thing to my handsewing advantage, it was all good.

You can see that her bed is red, with a pink Jenny Lind changing-table-turned-night-table-slash-storage-shelf. Plus there's a Somerset Gold dresser in the room. I'm about about eclectic, use-what-you-have decorating, hence the quilt's pink, red and yellow color scheme. It all pulls together quite nicely, if I do say so myself.

good for you, and such a feeling of accomplishment, I'm sure!! I would have loved to have seen her face when you let her know her blanket was finished. I love that face on my own. :)

Thanks, ladies. Larissa, right. More quilt pictures. I'll do that as soon as Audrey lets me take the quilt back off of her bed and into some better light. The room itself may have to wait until a day when it's all clean. Plus I'm working on finding her some wall art.

I'm so glad you like the quilt!

I love the colors and think the blues really make it!
