Bedroom Renovation Under Way

I have wanted new bedding for our king sized bed for quite a while, but the prices are just crazy. I've had our bedding since before our wedding and it is kind of dark and winterish. I really wanted something clean and summery. Yesterday, I was at Target and lucked out. I found this king sized comforter on clearance for $20.00! They had 3 square throw pillows and a few towels on clearance too and I grabbed them up. I love the color. I wonder why? was my wedding color. I knew George likes that color too. The best part is that it is a clean slate. It is plain and crying out for some dressing up from a quilter. I have plans to make a smaller quilt to be folded at the bottom of the bed and I have plans for the pillows too. Since I have so much "alone" time because George is working a lot of hours, I plan to get right on this project and I will keep you updated.

Baby Leighton is continuing to improve. Please keep praying for her.

I am also praying for the people so devasted by the tornados. It's so sad. I have been more and more aware that we really shouldn't take anything or anyone for granted.

Happy Sewing!!
