New Bedspread Prompts Change

I got a new to me chenille bedspread . A friend of ours gave it to us ( my sister and me ) because she knows we make a lot of things from recycled chenille . There were two throw pillow with it that Pam took because she liked them on her sofa . When I mentioned I was looking for a chenille spread for summer to take the place of the heavy quilted comforter that was currently on there. She reminded me of the spread that our friend had given us. She said it was much to pretty to cut up for crafts . So I brought it home and put it on my bed . Turns out it was a queen size and my bed is full , but since my bed sits really high I decided to try it anyway. What do you think ?


It just touches the floor all the way around , I used all the same pillows I had on it before .


It is the same soft cream color as the antique rocking chair that was my mother’s .


And the same soft cream as the throw that my grandmother crocheted on the bench.


And it pulls out the tea died muslin in the embroidery I did for over my bed . Do you like the crazy old door that I decoupaged with old book pages and tissue ? I left a little of the old white chippyness . The door and the arrangement are new since the last time I showed you my bedroom . So , do you like the new bedspread ?

On another note , I’m on a roll with the sewing , I made three new bags that I have added to my Etsy shop. And I have a couple more all cut out and ready to put together . If you get a chance go over and take a look . You’ll find a link to my shop on my left sidebar .


I’m going to link todays post with
