eBay Fail

I bid on and won a remarkably inexpensive bedset that would be perfect for curtains for my bedroom.  They were exactly what I had been looking for - in the photo.  In reality they are yellow.  I do not like yellow.  It grates on me.  I definitely could not manage in a bedroom with mainly yellow curtains.

I'll use the flannel sheets that came with them (though I'll consider dyeing them as I can't cope with yellow sheets) to keep the beds warm in winter.  I am not sure whether to donate, re-sell or use the duvets for practice as the previous stash of scrap fabric that is only fit for practice is a lot less than it used to be.

Also, bear only got a mildly awesome report at parents' evening so we have had Words and he is having to earn his treat for a good report.  He is doing well, really, though, so I am actually very proud.

On the bright side, my writer's block seems to have faded so if you are interested then I should be able to share something soon.  If you feel like writing yourself you can have a look at the latest Light and Shade Challenge and see if it inspires.



  1. I'm not a huge lover of yellow or orange. I can cope if it's a mustardy kind of yellow or pumpkin orange but other than that....noooooooooo.
    Hope you soon find what you are looking for-x-

  2. Waiting with bated breath for the next instalment of White Hart.

  3. Sorry the color was different than what you thought. Can you return it to the seller for a refund? If not, I'd just donate it.
