Before we left for the country, I mentioned that I finished up some projects that had been unfinished for a long long time. One of them was to finish sewing covers for the pillows in Alec’s reading nook.
The reading nook is simply made up of a queen sized bed pushed into a corner of the room. It’s made up as a bed with a duvet with a white cover – for those times when one of us sleeps in here. From the ceiling we’ve hung 20 fluffily poms in shades of white, cream, turquoise and blue. And on top of the bed I’ve piled an assortment of square, king, queen and twin-sized pillows that now have hand-sewn covers in various shades of grey, aqua and blue. There are lots of polka dots, some stripes and some little roses and it’s a cozy place to curl up with a book and a warm bottle.
