Sunday nights usually bring me to a place where I'm frantically running around trying to figure out Monday. Not tonight. Most productive weekend ever (or in a long time), physically and mentally (though mentally I'm still chewing on a couple of things). This has been a day of cleaning stuff and thinking about stuff and making stuff and listening to stuff (when I wasn't planning on doing any listening). I wish every day could be like this day. This Sunday night, I will sleep well. On freshly washed sheets. :-)
The craziest thing ever...I was sewing deep in the recesses of my basement when this bird flew in and landed on my sewing machine. It was being chased by a cat, but still. It's just a baby and was evidently terrified into calmness. Alicia put it in a tree outside and it stayed in that spot all day. If we would have had a cage, I'd have kept it a couple of days to make sure it was alright, but we don't. So, back out it had to go.
When one does not have a couch to sit on, one should make throw pillows. In my defense, I just made one. It's supposed to be a birdcage.
I put a zipper right in the middle of the back. I'm sure there's a way to do it at the edge seam, but I put roping (that you can't even really see in these pictures) around the edge and didn't feel like trying to figure out how to put a zipper and roping in the same seam. I can sort of wrap my mind around it...maybe the next one.
Dinner...such a sandwich-y kind of weekend. I think I'm getting tired of food, but (if history is indicative) that will pass. Beer bread with flax and pumpkin seeds with a white bean/garlic/rosemary spread and cucumbers. And watermelon.
