OK so this is my first sewing project that I am VERY proud of.  Please let me know if my head is getting tooo big!!  I wanted to make a new comforter for our bed, I originally made a quilt (no pictures) and that didn't turn out very well but it served it's purpose. 

Now I have a new found love of interior decorating and the rest of my house I'm kinda going for a vintage shabby sorta not dorm room look, but I wanted something serene and relaxing in the bedroom.  So this is what I came up with...keep in mind this is a WIP!!  I still need to put something up on the walls at least.

Here is the comforter


Detail of the embroidery


and everything so far...


Brutal Honesty would be appreciated!!

I actually winged it and just used my hands to measure.  It was all freehand and not very organised, it also took several fishing trips with my DH to finish.

I really like it. It's simple and serene, which I think a bedroom should be. Smiley

Nice job! It's kind of modern and classic at the same time.
