Measuring

The Project begins. I get into the back seat and start to measure with my trusty measuring tape.

Wow! There are sure a lot of curves and thing-a-ma-jigs involved with a Subaru back seat. Hmmmmm.

Two seats divided in the middle with various seat belts on the seat parts with bendable and moveable requirements. Curves everywhere and don’t forget those little knobby things that you have to push down to pull the seat forward or the head rests.

How on earth do you hold it down on the seat? Velcro, elastic, string? Oh my goodness. As I pulled fabric over the seat I realized it was probably too light to absorb that drink that my youngest grandson will probably spill on his first outing.

So, everything screeches to an abrupt halt as I immediately go on a search for absorbent padding to use underneath.

Healing…

Sketches to embroider a tablecloth with.

Been doing a lot of patience building as I wait for my broken collar bone to heal, 6-10 weeks seems like forever. I am able to use my right arm in limited motions close to my body so I am starting a tablecloth embroidery. Gotta have something for my hands to do at night.
For those of you who know me you are probably saying, “Another one”? Yep this one is a favorite subject of mine. Can you guess?

I am looking forward to Spring’a arrival to be able to put out the humming bird feeders. I am also planting their favorite flowers this year too and just can’t wait to sit out on my deck drinking morning coffee and watching these little guys fly around.
