Sewing Room Details
I had been on the search since last September for a re-made quilt or anything not white, for this room. There is this fantastic decorating store north, outside the city which specialises in country Victorian look and is super reasonable. But I did not like any of the quilts in there. All chucky squares in pink.
This set was in the spring/summer Sears Catalogue for $129.00/ double set. Not bad but I was not willing to spend that amount of money. It would be $150. with the taxes. The fall/winter book came out and it had dropped to $97.00, less then $115.00 with taxes. I saved up and ordered it. I was thrilled when it came. Both the quilt and shams are reversible, having a small print of roses on the underside.
Before I bought the quilt I found at the local quilt store, south of us, this fabric. Almost identical to the back of the quilt. It is called The Country Garden and comes in many different pink and green prints. I bought two meters of this at $12.95/m. I am going to make a valance for the window and one for the shelving frame, to bring the pink into the room.
So these are a few details of my new room.
