This lovely Monday morning I’ve had windows open, soft smells of spring coming through the screens as I CLEAN, BABY, CLEAN!
Mondays are the day I love to change bedding, catch up on house work ----clean bathrooms, scrub kitchen floors and put things in order.
Okay, I love the clean fresh bedding, but I don’t enjoy scrubbing bathrooms and kitchen floors so much – but I feel SO GOOD when it is done.
Jason and Kim are coming up on Thursday ---and I’m not going to be here!
But that doesn’t mean that I didn’t want to take some time sprucing things up for them.
I don’t have dust BUNNIES – I’ve got DUST CATS. Or CAT anyway since only one of them lives indoors, and her shedding season is about to be in full swing There were dust cats hiding under beds and dressers --I think I've corralled them all!
After the bedding was washed, and I was putting all back together in the guest room so it's ready for them when they come on Thursday, I thought it might be fun to show you what I put on the bed.
Do you do this? I change the quilts when I wash the bedding --- the sheets are already off the bed anyway, so why not change the look of the room at the same time?
I changed out the winter quilt, and put my funky 1950s “Hands All Around” quilt on the bed. I found this top a few of years ago at an antique mall, added borders, quilted it up, and it has become one of my favorites just because of the funny fabrics in it. Some of the blocks have REALLY low contrast ---
Isn’t it fun?
So here’s a little something I thought might be fun since we are all getting into Spring Cleaning mode. ((You are too, aren’t you?!)) What if we did posts showing “What’s on Your Bed?” If you feel like changing the sheets, putting a different quilt on the bed, DO IT! Write a post with a picture of the quilt on your bed, a little bit about it…and come back and link to me. I think it would be fun to see!
I know this is kind of like a last-minute-on-the-fly idea, but that's the kind of girl I am, so just indulge me and play along!
***NOTE*** When you put your info in the linky, PLEASE put in the address of the specific post containing the picture of your quilt on your bed. DO NOT just link it to your whole blog, or I'll have to remove it and have you try again because I can't fix it for you. To get the right address of your post to show up in your address bar so you can copy/paste it --- click on the TITLE of the blog post you wrote about your quilt. The address you see in the address bar should end with .html not .com
I’m off to the chiropractor. I guess I didn’t win the number of jelly beans that were in the jar --- but that’s okay, I don’t need the jelly beans, there is enough other jelly parts to me to make up for that! However, I would like this nerve pain down the back of my right leg to go away! It even hurts when I press the sewing machine foot pedal. This is SO not fair.
Maybe when I get back there will be some other linkies below --- okay? Change out those quilts, and go take a pic!
