Throw it out, throw it on.

Looks like I am becoming a weekend and late night blogger, at least until I get caught up on my work projects.

I put in a few hours of work on a Saturday every now and then, like yesterday, but taking the weekends off has become such a habit, that I can't make myself do work work. "Home" work is another thing altogether. As I was cleaning out the garage, or actually, moving boxes and other stored items from center of garage to outer edges of garage, I came across a project that could be finished in an evening, so that's what I did. The squares were all sewn together, I just had to sew the back on, turn it right side out, pin it together with safety pins, and then add the buttons while I watched TV.

Most of these fabrics were scraps from slipcovers, cushion covers, and pillows. The buttons are all mother of pearl. Mmmm...I might have to curl up under it with a book in a little while.

After I sort through a couple of piles in the garage and decide what to throw out.
