When I say I get to indulge myself in pink in the guest room, I mean it! The carpeting was in place when I bought the house . . . don't know if I would be so brave as to select pink carpeting, but I am very glad it is there. And the walls are as pink as the carpet . . . that is my doing. If you get disoriented, you'd think you'd fallen into a tub o' raspberry sorbet.
I've been struggling with lighting and getting good pictures of quilts. I'm paying attention to white balance and color setting on the camera, but that can compensate only so much for getting the lighting right.
So I made a 'photography lamp' . . . an antique pole lamp that I never got around to restoring and a clip on light from the basement. It helps. And it is so me, the queen of make-do, right-now and it-didn't-cost-anything.
The pic above is the edited photo. The pic just below is the original which I was quite tickled with because it's my best shot yet for my efforts . . . but the color wasn't right, it was a little crooked and I didn't think about the things under the bed showing.

The guest room has two twin beds so I better like the quilt pattern I'm doing since I have to make two of them! This set of quilts is a suite of quilted things . . . I keep sewing until there is next to nothing for scraps.
|Each bed has an applique house pillow. And a nap time hourglass quilt.|
|And each bedside table has a little hexagon topper from the hexes that were left over. The loopy meander quilting is the same quilting I did on the quilts . . . it goes fast and is cute.|
