Today I made the sandwich and cut the backing material and the batting. I rolled it up to do the basting at daylight. Have to do the basting on my knees/on all fours. The backing fabric is a material that I wanted to use for clothing more than 20 years ago. Then, I dyed my hair with henna. Now this color doesn't suit me any more. -- Saw sunshine and snowfall at the same time. The snow is gone completely. How glad we are to be walking freely without taking care of each step on that nasty ice crust. Like zoo animals that can run outdoors again. -- J caught cold, and after fighting it bravely for two days, he gave in and stayed at home. Now I can cook for my loved companion who pulls away the bread basket from my hand, saying that zoo bears have to be kept busy. Ha. Ha.
