There are a million pillows, but none that stand out or add interest.  The small blue pillows are too small for the bed, old and dirty.  Blech. I do still love the coverlet, and the blue throw is so soft and lovely, it’s one of my favorite parts of the whole room.  But the rest, well let’s just say…

It means that I didn’t get to today’s project until, well, today.  But, instead of giving up on it, I went ahead and pushed through.  And, I’m so happy I did.…
