keeping cozy

*IMG_2089

The name of the game? Keep warm and stay sane!   Scraps of recycled felt from last years christmas presents (hot water bottle cozies, coffee mug sleeves, etc.) are being turned into new household decor.  Our old ikea footstool was really starting show it’s age.  I pieced together a free form patchwork sweater cover, and now it looks mighty spiffy.
