I was so pleased when I found this old crocheted bedspread in a second hand shop for a bargain price. I love having an all white bed - I think it is because it is a little place of tranquility in the chaos of my 5 child household! We bought this bed a few years ago from Laura Ashley and the curvy shapes really appealed. The beauty of the bedspread (apart from its good looks) is that it hides all the dust that accumulates underneath! The blue peeling walls were bequeathed to us by the previous owner - we are painting them slowly.... very slowly.
I have a slightly smaller crocheted piece that I use as a tablecloth and I love the contrast of the white against the wood. I have seen photos of these tablecloths/bedspreads dyed in a beautiful French grey colour and am on the search for another one to experiment on!
Sorry Mum (susieq), I know the pillowcases aren't ironed, I need you to come home and look after me!
