Winter: Not Over Yet
Last week temperatures reached the 60s, most of the snow melted and revealed grass I haven't seen since last fall. So of course we went crazy: broke out the shorts, went for walks and bike rides, started planning a garden, and then winter decided to blizzard on us again today. So I'm back to hibernating indoors, sipping hot chocolate and wearing comfy sweat pants all day. And the usual cleaning and drawing and crafting comfy sweater pillows. Which really isn't so bad. Sweaters were on sale at Goodwill for $1, so I picked up a few soft wool ones and made a pillow cover for some inserts I got a while ago from Ikea. I have a few more in the works and I really like how they're turning out. I cut them up and sewed the pieces together because my pillows are rather large, but if you wanted a small pillow, I think a large cable knit sweater would work well for one, just sew it into a square small. Viola! Easy peasy, snuggly wuggly.
