Bunk Beds

No stitching at home this weekend... I feel kind of lost. I was all set after our errands on Saturday to hunker in and then friends called and we went out for the evening. It was a lovely evening, but... I did take some temari cores with me and conversed with my hands winding thread randomly but that still doesn't fill the void.

On Saturday morning I had some commission work. C received a gift of bunk beds for her babies from my friend Marj, but there was no bedding. DD2 suggested using one of the character sheets from when she and her sister were little (their grandma loved giving them sheets) and I found a Strawberry Shortcake top sheet and pillow case. Plenty of fabric! I covered two mattresses and attached the top sheet, and made 3 pillows (one for each baby). I'm not done yet, though, I have to make the comforters/duvets. C wants them to feature the kitty from the fabric (because it's so cute!). I haven't quite worked out yet how that is going to work.


Here they are sleeping sweetly in their new beds.

I did actually finish the 12-face temari on Friday; I will share pictures of that tomorrow.

This looks so cool! I love the sheets and the dollies look very happy. So do the long-neglected beds.
