Bedroom at the retreat
The bedroom in the retreat is beginning to come together. I'm still working on a quilt for the bed and I need to put some kind of decoration on the back wall - artwork or drapes, or maybe both, but I decided to show you anyhow.
This is the chest of drawers - all empty at the moment. Do you like the lamp I made, with its pretty lace shade?
and this is the bedside rug that I stitched.
This is the table from the living room, complete with holiday scrapbook, mobile phone, jug of country flowers, coffee mug and two Cath Kidston fabric covered notebooks.
My own garden is in full bloom at the moment - a bit of a jungle thanks to all the rain that we've had but I have to admit to rather liking that wildness so I won't be cutting it back any time soon. I don't live in the country but I always wanted a cottage garden, so that's what I have.
This rose was given to me for my 50th birthday so it's now 14 years old - and still smothered with flowers every year from June to September, and beyond.
