I played with the pile of stuff for the loft bed long enough to decide I needed a life-size example. Making an unmade, messy bed is more difficult than a neatly made bed.
I fashioned a pallet on the living room floor, then occupied it for a couple of hours.
After I picked it up and put everything away I took the mini pile back to my workable. I've been fussing with it for days, needle sculpting folds, and sewing all the components together.
It looks like a nest. I like it.
I decided yesterday to get dreaded tasks complete and out of the way. I still have the child's bed in the loft left to do, I'm trying to decide if I want to tackle that today. I might as well, while my sewing stuff is already out. Ugh.
I know I said I was going to complete this build with nothing more than items from my stash, but look at these granny squares.
I envisioned them from the get-go, but can't crochet. Thank you, Michelle, for the custom order.
You'll see the only thing I got done was cutting down the sectional (again), reforming the back corner into a curve (air dry clay), and upholstering. The rounded corner was difficult, there are a couple of obvious diagonal seams in the straight sections, but the afghans cover them.
A Milo update... Kate's ex-feral kitten is a big marshmallow.
Happy May! Spring is finally here. In April Michigan experienced all the precipitations...snow, rain, sleet, hail, fog...temperatures between 7℉ and 76℉...thunderstorms, blizzards...there was even an earthquake. It was crazy.
I've been enjoying the sunshine the past couple of weekends so haven't done much on the build. I've got a few little odds-and-ends in progress; the only thing finished so far is a wandering jew that I made for the front porch.
