It was an easy fix even if my camera and I did get soaked.
I came it to dry out and warm up with a cup of tea because November has arrived and I still have not turned on the furnace. My goal each year is to turn off the furnace May 1st and leave it off until November. Most often on both ends of that time period there are days I turn the furnace on “just to take the chill out of the air”. I’ve avoided even that this fall.
I cut the sheet down first, to make a piece of fabric 26 inches longer and wider than my mattress top. Then I sewed box corners and hemmed it. The final step was to insert elastic on the corners.
A break in the rain invited me out for a walk in the park. As I passed the school I saw that the dumpster was overflowing. Mostly holiday decorations, old trophies, broken desks, but this caught my eye. I’m hoping it will work as a stand for my bird feeder. But if not it will make a great plant stand.
Up until recently the only time I wore scarves was on cold winter days. I never wore them as a fashion accessory, but for some reason my taste have changed. The last time I was at Goodwill this one caught my eye. $2.99 (less 30% green tag special.
