|Home dec sewing progress|
|No box spring so I had to figure how to secure it to this framework....blue blanket is on the bottom trundle that slides out|
|Grograin ties to hold it on the back of the frame|
|front corner fabric ties and top mattress in place|
Next up is a duvet cover to cover up a quilt that I bought almost 30 years ago when Mr. Lucky and I moved in together in Petaluma, CA. It's full of the pastels that were so in vogue then.....and seem to be coming back in slightly different versions in spring 2013 colors. What goes around, comes around, just different enough to try to get us to buy new again. Off to sew up that big rectangle....
This home dec sewing is all about the staging, not all about long term wear. Years ago when we first moved here I did do a guest room decorating project with truly couture techniques and it looks just as great today as the day I made everything:

Thank you too, sweet readers, for you broken iron sympathies. I thought my spray bottle and hot, but dry, iron would suffice but as most of us know, steaming and pressing is vital to a good finished result. On my bike ride yesterday I stopped in at Target and bought a Shark steam iron for $25. Not too much money, plenty of steam and I can get back to what I really love to do, sew. Hope you get to something that you love today.
