Can You See It?
I made a mistake. When the weather took a turn for the worst today, I was so excited because I finally had enough energy to feel inspired to do a project. I spotted a paint brush roll in a book and thought that it was time to make one. Grabbing my box of recycled linens, I cut out the pieces, resizing it to fit my smaller sized brushes, pens, and pencils. I just now finished it, turned it right side out, top-stitched it and tried it out. I discovered that when I re-sized, I forgot to adjust where to insert the ties, so now when you fold the flap down the ties are in the wrong place. I've put it aside to fix another day.
Also, I've done a few more squares from my leftovers. It's slowly growing. I'll be going out of town on Tuesday and I hope to find a suitable fabric for some of the squares and the border.
Isn't this little fellow cute? I believe he is a white crowned sparrow. They were very shy at first, but are now coming to the little finch feeder on the deck. It's a little blurred due to cropping.
