Talking of fabrics and beautiful prints I am completely head over heels for my new duvet cover and pillowcases from Joules range of floral bedding. They are just so totally me! All those stunning colours - bright red, hot pink, ochre and mustard with teal greens and blue set against a crisp white background. Oh yeah! I've always had a soft spot for their vintage style, splodgy floral prints and this yummyness is from their Ruby Floral collection.
Yesterday was the first day in weeks we've had lovely sunshine and blue skies over Edinburgh and although I purposefully picked a double duvet cover to use over the summer months I couldn't wait to see how this beauty would look in the sunshine. So yesterday morning while it was bright and beautiful and the sun was streaming through the window I popped it on the bed and stood back to admire these beautiful blooms in all their glory! I can't wait to be waking up to these on bright sunny Sunday mornings, having breakfast in bed and crocheting a couple of hours away amongst this loveliness. The colours are so uplifting and I can't help but smile when I see them. Sheets that totally make me happy!
And do you know what else I am most chuffed about!? How well my little Yvonne cushion cover matches, the colours are almost identical! You'd be forgiven for thinking that I had just crocheted her to match these sheets even though she came of my hook nearly three years ago and the yarns I used were a thifty find, colours that were discontinued ten years ago! Definitely a timeless colour combination for me.
Can't say my wee man is quite so chuffed about the new sheets as I am though. Ain't no way he's getting on the bed with these beauties, don't care how pleading those big brown eyes are. So not happening! It'll happen.
