Home: Two Relaxation Spots

Those who know me well say that I am actually not very good at relaxing at all. However, when the TV is on and the phone rings, I take it to the quiet of my bedroom, above. (Note for patchwork freaks: the above quilt is made up of ready-cut squares of leftover Hawaiian shirt fabric that my mother bought at a market in Honolulu some years ago. They speedily became a very happy summery quilt!) Below is where I might otherwise lie and read a book (with my head resting between the four red roses on the lovely aqua pillow) or sit up knitting and listening to the TV. Please note reflection of photographer with bed hair in the small round painted mirror.
This post is part of a game started over at Meet Me at Mike's by Pip Lincolne. This week players were asked to show a place of sanctuary within their home. A lovely theme dreamt up by Pilgrim.
I am going to be Theme Queen next week. I hope that even in the midst of pre-holiday madness people find time to play! I might take the theme a little bit sideways...I hope that nobody minds.

Thanks that was a lovely view of your quiet escape.

I am already excited about the sideways! I will make time to play inside the paper and pudding pandemonium

Thanks Spectacular! I can't wait to see your post next week -- if it's half as cool as the trampoline it'll be super! ;)

I love your quiet space - books, fabric and a babushka - my idea of a trifecta of lovely

Hi Quilary, Back Shed and Pilgrim, I'm very pleased that you like my resting spots. It makes me especially happy to know that the hard work that goes into patchwork is appreciated!
