After weeks of waiting, my glorious A.P.C. quilt has finally arrived!! My bedding situation is a little chaotic (mismatched pillows, mismatched sheets, two thin airplane blankets, one duvet, one blanket purchased in Bali, and my quilt) (and no, I don’t turn on the heat in my bedroom), but the quilt pulls everything together. The quilt is super thick and warm and heavy, really amazing quality. Very substantial. Since I am missing the craftsy gene, I hope that this adopted heirloom will keep me company throughout my entire life.
The “curtain” is actually a beautiful piece of fabric my mom gave me for Christmas. She wanted me to make a top or dress with the material (she actually suggested I give the fabric to Jennifer — my mom is a huge fan!), but as a curtain I get to enjoy its beauty every single day. It’s slightly sheer, really heavyweight silk, so it filters sunlight as this gorgeous aquamarine color. It makes me feel like I live in the ocean. I’ll try to get better pics of it soon.
But really: thanks to Joyce for the original heads up.
