Bob and I have been having quilt wars.
We have had a rather heavy comforter on our bed.
When I saw it I fell in love with it.
Ordered the Valance and curtains too.
Since I am menopausal, I have almost all my hot flashes at night.
You can set them like clockwork.
I am almost always having one between 3 and 3:30 am.
With that big heavy quilt, I was roasting.
I would push the quilt down on my side and throw a leg out.
I would wake up again, too cold.
Bob would pull the quilt back up too during the night....more cooking.
I would fold the heavy quilt all on Bob's side since he's cold.
I tried the blanket one night but was too cold.
About a week ago, I found a little quilted throw my mom made for my son and appropriated that.
I was perfect but, now Bob is too hot.
Went shopping with the stitching group and stopped at Kohl's Department store to look at a new quilt.
I promised Bob he would not have to repaint the room.
I like the color.
I found a Chaps quilt, light weight, a bronzy gold color that sort of goes with the shams and curtains.
These are the old shams.
I did buy matching shams but, not sure if I like them as much as the old ones.
So here is the general idea.
I think we both like the weight of the new quilt.
Tried it last night and I think we were both happy.
I still had a little hot flash but, not anywhere near what I was experiencing.
I think this may be a keeper.
I finished all the Shepherd's Bush Valentine Trifles.
I just now need to "finish" them.
That will probably be a next weekend project.
Sorry it is a little blurry.
I showed you the Be My Valentine on the last entry.
These are very cute, very fun and very quick.
Gotta like that!
I will be starting the Drawn Thread Easter Jumble tonight.
I got the NPS from 123 Stitch yesterday.
I didn't need too many colors so, I splurged.
I'm now good to go.
I will be using 28 count Antique White linen.
I love these colors.
They are gorgeous.
On our travels yesterday with the Stitching Group, we stopped at a quilt store.
I picked up some fat quarters for finishing projects.
We also stopped at the Bee and I got a couple of new PS patterns.
I'll show those on the next installment.
Hope you had a great weekend.
Thanks for the great comments and for stopping by.
Keep on Stitching
