Polar fleece (and temperatures)

I won’t pretend I was amazingly productive all day, but I did get a couple of projects done. We went over to Foyil early in the morning to help clear downed branches from the nature trail at Ed Galloway’s Totem Pole Park. The 15-degree weather left me feeling like a human popsicle, and I seem to have tiny wood chips caught all up in my clothes, but at least the trail isn’t so hazardous now.

I saw a gorgeous indigo bunting flitting across Route 66 in east Tulsa on the way back from Foyil, and three big hawks were circling above the road as we were on our way to lunch in Sapulpa. I forgot to mention this the other day, but Ron says we’ve got garlic coming up in the garden. It seems to sprout a week later every year. Not sure what that’s about, but as long as we get a decent crop, I don’t really care when it sprouts.

I spent the afternoon setting up my new sewing machine (I wound up buying a Kenmore after the Singer turned out to be defective), and then I devoted most of the evening to making seatcovers for my car. I’d made a cotton seatcover a week and a half ago, but it didn’t fit as well as I’d hoped, so I made two new ones out of Cars-themed polar fleece. I used a tied fleece blanket as a cover for the back seat, so I designed the front seatcovers to look like tied fleece blankets, too. They’re not perfect, but I think they turned out pretty cute, and they were very easy to make. I’ll try to get a picture of them when I get a hand free.

I still have a ton of projects I need to work on, but it’s been a long day, so I think I’m just going to poke the fire, let the dogs out one more time, and crash.

Hope your Saturday was good.

Goal for Sunday: Make divinity.

    I love divinity too! I got a kenmore sewing machine for Christmas – I have only made one project – the first in my life – pajama pants.

    I enjoyed reading your post! Thanks.

    Peace
