My new bed and Fifty

I have been using a lot of my sewing
time reading the Fifty Shades Trilogy.....
I have just started the third book and am enjoying them....
These are the new sheets that I purchased for
 a steal from the clearance section at Myer for my
 new "Old" wrought iron and brass bed......
They are gorgeous quality....
I got two double sheet sets and a king size
doona cover set for $110 for the lot....About $800 value.....
Only problem is that I wanted a queen doona cover set....
So the first job in my new sewing room was to cut a strip off
 the side off the doona cover and stitch it all back up....
And this is how nice and snugly my bed now looks.....
I cant wait to see how good my Hexi quilt will look on here...
I just love it!!!!
I picked up this aqua coverlet at House that looks great with
about 5 of my finished and unfinished quilt tops....
There is a canopy at the head that I am thinking about hanging some
sheer curtains on it but have yet to totally decide on that....
My next job is to make a gathered valance to hide
 all the things that I have stored underneath....
I tried to buy one but pleated and quilted were all I could find,
 plus it will need to be 50cm's to reach the floor
so I will make it from cream poly cotton...
Until next time, Happy Stitching
