duvet and purple scrap blanket

i found a double size flat sheet (with matching pillow cases) at the thrift shop,  
i was drawn to it because of its faded denim colour and its two dollar price tag.
for an extra dollar, i was able to pick up another flat sheet (exactly the same size)
 but in a different shade of blue.
after a good laundering and a quick run through the sewing machine
(p.s. instructions are in this previous post)

i ended up with a new-to-me duvet cover (not that i really needed another one!!)

voila !!!

and here is my purple scrap blanket on top...all finished (finally) !!!
i'm still reading both john lanchester's capital and andre alexis' fifteen dogs.
one sits on my nightstand and the other in my gym bag 
so i can read while on the stationary bike.

what are you knitting? reading? sewing?
care to share?
