You are either crocheting with too much tension or not adding enough stitches.

Bedding is Fashion for the Bed

Ladies, we spend a lot of time in the morning getting ready for
the day. We take showers, put on makeup, blow dry our hair and
put on just the right outfit we feel good in. Then we top it off
with the hot colors of accessories from sunglasses to sandals -
the details of what we wear matters in how we look and feel.
Maybe it shouldn't be that way, but it is. You can think of your
bedding as fashion for the bedroom because you dress your bed
just as clothing and accessories dress your body. The little
details we put in our bedrooms such as vintage rag rugs, beaded
lampshades, hand crocheted pillowcases or satin sheets will make
all the difference of how we feel as we spend time in our

A bedroom is a place to feel safe, comfortable and cocooned as
we sleep at night. I like the bedroom to be an expression of who
I am as well as that of my husband. I don't want it to be all
cabbage rose, salmon pink and lace because that doesn't make my
husband feel too comfortable. He isn't exactly the cabbage rose
type. However, it also doesn't have to be golfing, fishing and
rustic log furniture either. We can compromise on a majestic
leaf pattern with just a small floral touch. I use deeper colors
of blue and green mixed with a sophisticated plaid and stripe
for the bed linen. I love to mix all the patterns together and
it turns out great. If you have never done that before you might
find it a little tricky, but you will be okay if you stick to
the same hue in the same color families. We live in the north
woods so our colors are stronger, rustic and outdoors. There is
a nice blend and flow throughout the home. Doesn't it make sense
to begin with colors inside that reflect the great outdoors,
striking a balance between the two? I am surrounded by pine
trees and a beautiful lake. I feel serene and happy when I take
those same colors and make a beautiful room to spend my private

Take a cue from the great outdoors If you are confused about
where to begin when it comes to decorating the bedroom or other
parts of the house, take a cue from the outdoors. Stand at one
of the windows from inside a room and look out. What do you see
happening in your backyard? Do you have a blue swimming pool or
is your garden filled with yellow marigolds? Does your lawn look
like green velvet or do you have earthy shades from rocks and
stone? Do you love the cold strength of black wrought iron patio
furniture or do you prefer bold awning stripes? You can begin to
get the idea of how the inside can reflect the outdoors or vise

You want your whole family to feel as comfortable in their
bedrooms as you do. If you pay attention to details of bed
linens, color, furnishings and small personal touches for your
kid's rooms, they will feel like they are special, and they may
even clean the room a little more often. For example, your
baby's bedding could look cute and cuddly, the colors and
patterns for kids can be bright, fun and whimsical. It doesn't
matter what size of mattress you or your kids have, the
mattresses must all afford comfort. The goal of every bedroom is
to have linens that are beautiful, easy to take care of, and
mattresses that are comfortable to sleep on. If the room is
dressed right, you will feel good while you are in it. You might
consider just adding a duvet cover for a quick change over the
tired comforter. I have taken old fitted sheets that were worn
and placed them on the windows for an instant dramatic valance.
Be creative when it comes to your personal style and get the
kids involved. You don't have to be extremely crafty to just get
some fabric paint and let them design their own sheets. Isn't it
kind of boring to always buy what is shown to you in catalogs or
retail stores? Place a table you had in the living room at your
bedside and put a family quilt on it. Use solid velvet throw
pillows that you haven't had out in a while and add a few
baubles to them or stitch a lace handkerchief to the top.

Take what you already own and just put it somewhere else in a
new way. Divide all of your little collectibles into piles by
color. Never prejudge something that you think is strictly for
the kitchen, or just for a bathroom. If you look at the small
knickknacks with fresh eyes you might be surprised at how warm a
room can be just by using the play of color. I love using things
in an unexpected way. Don't limit these ideas to the bedroom.
Your whole house can be spruced up with a quick change by just
moving around the pieces you already own. Another trick is to
keep the small items all together in one spot. Don't try to
spread the small things out to cover space. You will make much
more of a statement if you keep them together because there is
strength in numbers. Know your priorities before you buy Do you
prefer your bedding to be 450 thread count Egyptian cotton, or
an easy no fuss fiber blend? Do the mattresses need to have a
thick 100% cotton mattress pad? Are you looking for the most
high tech mattress on the market? Do you want the baby's bedding
to be the softest available or is the cute factor more
important? Do you want to be surrounded by fancy luxury or
casual chic? Have a good idea of what you are looking for before
you start making buying decisions. You are dressing your
bedrooms in fashion just as you would your body. Don't be afraid
to experiment a little, and use the things you already own for a
fresh look.
