Feathering my Nest

I meant to post photos of some of the things I made last year but I didn't get around to it.  So here is a queen sized duvet cover I made for my down comforter.  I bought the fabric online so I didn't realize the it was gold.  But, it was beautiful and I loved it.  I made a couple of pillow cases to match.

Here it is laid out in the spare bedroom looking like a bohemian squat amidst some of my other ongoing projects.

I liked the pillow cases so much I made some green ones.  Then, I made some blue ones, too.  They are very cheery and make me feel like a princess!  Since they are 100% cotton, I usually don't throw them in the dryer after washing but air dry them and iron them to a crisp finish.  People (wives/women and servants, I suppose) used to iron all of their linens along with their clothes!  Hard to believe in this day and age.  Sometimes, I think I could be a hermit and never leave the house except to go on vacation!
