(found last year at an antique shop)
Never thought I'd ever post this early in the morning. But my coffee was ready on time, the pets didn't put up a fuss during feeding time and so far (in this hour) things have been going smoothly. It's quiet, of course, and there's a cat on my lap. As soon as a lap forms around here, a cat just *appears*.
My Take Once Daily project is definitely a challenge. Some evenings I find I haven't taken anything, then it's dark and incandescent light makes all my shots glow yellow. I've been including them anyway, they can't all be gems and there's some sort of truth to glowing yellow evenings in winter. I've found that most of my pictures are of pets or food and there's a lot of truth in that, too! Pets and food are pretty important around these parts, esp during the dark, rainy days of winter.
Haven't been doing too much sewing, which is a bummer. Though I did whip up some napkins in a desperate need to actually finish a project! Been working on a quilt that's slowly making me insane and I needed some instant gratification. The quilt is the first one I'm making for Chez CozyNotions, not giving away as a gift. And, for some reason, that ups the stakes for me. Frustrated Perfectionists, raise your calloused hands! There's some puckering at the end of my rows, though I used a walking foot and adjusted the thread tension. Possibly my machine needs a tune up? I need to think about this problem more before I go back to that quilt.
My next project just might be a pillow, since SMS is having Pillow Month and I LOVE pillows (Mr. Cozynotions would say I love them to a fault). Playing around with some Echino and linen. Flooooofy (aka Ivy, Doodle, ScroofyPoof) approves.
