I really need to finish this project amongst many others.  My life seems to be clogging up with unfinished projects and good intentions.  This kind of behaviour can cause stress, especially when you see the clutter of materials collected and still no changes made.  I envisioned my daughter’s bedroom transformed with 3 simple changes but after a whole summer…nothing.

I suppose I can blame it on gardening, working, and road trips but alas…that is wearing thin.  Today I make the duvet cover.

So what I have done so far is purchased a queen sized sheet from a thrift store.  I will then sew it to another same sized sheet, and leave an opening for the duvet to go in with velcro pieces to close it up.  Simple yet an annoying task with a messy house.  I’m up at 5 am right now to get cleaning so I can start by 8.

Because the sheets were not completely the same size I had to get creative and adjust but as you can see after an hour, Maggie has a new duvet cover.
