This weekend, I had many ideas tumbling around in my head, but was having trouble settling on one, so I did a bunch of little things.
I made cat collars for my two fuzzy roommates....I used the old clips from the store-bought collars I bought several years ago. If silent disdain equals approval, then I think they approve.
I also made a new ironing board cover, since as you can see, my old one was Really Disgusting. Things were sticking to it when I used the iron, so it was time to go. I used some freecycle fabric that looks like a vintage sheet but actually isn't. It is pretty decent weight and nice and crisp. I doubled it up and used some stash cotton batting, as well as some stash piping cord as a drawstring. It is pulling in the center because I added the velcro straps from the old ironing board cover.
I also made new pillowcases from the same material. I don't like the actual material itself as well as I thought I would, so I have been making things that won't really see the light of day.
On Monday morning, I made a 320 mile detour on my way to school, and drove to Portland to drop off some clothes and things for my mom to take back to my sister in Missouri. I would like to extend my thanks to the great state of Washington and the fabulous condition of the I-5 freeway, which rewarded me with this fantastic smashed windshield.
