Sigh. Today was perfect.
I woke up, drank coffee and munched on leftover doughnuts from Mum's visit.
Then I listened to Craftypod Episode #103 with Rachel from One Pretty Thing. As I did that I began cutting up some fabric scraps to make a new garland.
I've been so inspired by garlands for a long while now, popping up all over blogs and Flickr, but this one by Pam Garrison put me over the edge. I had to have a leaf garland and I had to have it NOW! I was on a crafty mission.
So after all the snipping and cutting, came the stitching and sewing. I put the new garland up...it looked okay...but it needed something.
Then I remembered that I had an entire bag of felted beads in my stash from an old swap.
The results are kind of spiffy don't you think?
(Garlands are hard to photograph...it looks a bit cooler in person)
I think this garland will stay up from now all the way into Christmas. I am smitten by it!
Matt and I got to have some "us" time today, which was nice. We watched old Simpsons re-runs and kept toasty on the couch. We did some light chores, putting away laundry and such, but mostly it was just a totally relaxing day.
Hobbes and Cassie were really helpful with the laundry bit.
I've had Perfect Day by Lou Reed stuck in my head all day. Yes indeed.
Hope you all had a perfect Sunday!
