There is nothing nicer than making your bed for the first time with fabulous new bed linen...
or is this just a sensation I experience???
We recently purchased a new mattress for our king size bed, but it is much thicker than the previous mattress & believe it or not, the king size quilt cover is about 10cm too narrow to cover it.
When I make my bed I have to line it up so the side you look at when you walk in the door is covered & the window side has the sheets exposed.
Thankfully there is a solution to this problem, its called the 'Super King'.
A traditional King is 245 x 210cm
The Super king is 270 x 240cm
So Ive done a little online retail therapy & this is what I bought
The Ascot seafoam quilt set.
I have only purchased the quilt & basic pillow cases & I think once it arrives I might go & get some fabric to sew a few cushions in various sizes to dress it up a little.
I have purchased this from an online store called
I will let you know how it pans out.
I would love a white quilt but I plan to save that for the dream house.
I want it to be sparkling & new when I move in & if the speed we are currently travelling at with getting organised for building this house is any indication of how long the build will take, then my quilt will be old & worn by the time we move in.
We had expected to be started by mid may but the dream guy has changed his plan of attack & still hasn't finished quoting it so it could be months before there is any action.
He is currently building a kitchenette in his shed/mancave seen as though we will spend all of our spare time there once the building begins, he has already built a bathroom.
Have you purchased any new linen lately?
Where do you do your online shopping & what keeps you going back there???
