Bed room turnaround so Sleep tight.

I'm showing you some more of my cottage today as I have finally got round to giving my bedroom a new look. I can't show you before as I forgot to take pictures, but here it is now.
My bed sits between these two tables, remember my cottage is 500 years old so all the floors are sloping in different directions, I'm lucky that these are almost level.
This is the quilt that I always use in winter. It has organic cotton wadding, so is a lovely weight.
I love needle turn applique and designed this cushion a few years ago. I finished quilting it sitting in the garden of a holiday villa in Crete, it always reminds me of  sitting under a lemon tree.




This little picture is a left over pansy from the cushion.



I love heart shaped cushions, this one is scented with French Lavender from Provence.



This is one of a series of '' Nine of Hearts '' quilts that I made several years ago, each embroidered heart has it's own quote.


Every girl needs a space to make herself ready to face the day.
This is mine!!

I found this pretty bowl for a £1 at a garage sale and filled it with Lavender and Roses. It smells divine.
Next to it is a picture of my Mum when she was in the Wrens in WW2.


Aren't these colours so pretty, Point shoes, roses and gorgeous scarves.


My pretty little chest, covered in roses, ( you realise now, I love anything with roses, ) above it a picture that was my Mothers favourite.


and finally the window seat with its view over my neighbours lovely garden.

Well thats my bedroom, my sanctuary at the end of the day, I can snuggle under my quilt with a good book and dream of tomorrows creations.

I'm working on a Christmas quilt so pop over to my other blog for a peak at my progress.

xox Angela.
