Fun Bed, Shoo-Fly

Here is the "fun" bed. I had ordered these linens as a way of celebrating Charlie's retirement and brightening up the dark cloudy days of winter. Then he got his terrible cold the day before retirement, and I didn't want him to get his GERMS on these joyous bubbles. So I held off until yesterday when he seemed a good deal better. In the afternoon he went in a laid down to take a nap, with no comment whatsoever about the new look!


Well, I'm enjoying seeing them every time I glance in the room. And I slept very well under/over them last night.


I changed my sample blocks for the Spoolspinners' Mystery from Nine-Patches to Shoo-Fly by adding a triangle to each corner. I hadn't thought it through thoroughly enough for cutting size, so the smallest one ended up too small, and will have to be put in the orphan box.

Going forward I will make the center sqaure black, and make the corner triangles more wonky. This will make it a combination of 1)Spoolspinners' Mystery, 2) Black & White Challenge, and 3) "project improv". At least that's the plan for now.
