While it remains somewhat gray, it has warmed up and the sun has poked through a few times today. It seems like it's been cold and cloudy forever. I did a load of wash this morning hoping it would clear up enough to get them out. They're stretched out on the line in front of me, a happy sight. Finally, I'm able to sit out on the deck again.
I finished up my cushion and put it on my bed.
Before lunch, I went out looking for a better mattress cover for my bed. Recently, I bought a new mattress and also purchased the obligatory mattress protector. It is one of those with elastic around the bottom edges. I hate it because it always bunches up when you're in bed. My zippered cover from the last mattress won't fit the pillow top. I found one that will although it may be a it too big which I think could be fixed.
After lunch, I thought about venturing outside but somehow ended up in my sewing studio. I played with some free motion, stitching all the grass and plants down. A bit of work but it didn't take that long and it was relaxing. I tried overlaying netting to hold it all down but didn't really like it. Probably, it's best viewed a bit from a distance.
Then I got out the paints and coloured the white lace.
I also starting laying more stems over top. Am I crazy, lol? It's completely fanciful. I'm having some creative fun, not really sure how it will end up or if it will. For now it is keeping me busy and happy.
