Yesterday morning I was "squaring up" my beloved heating pad cover. This is the part where you trim your item so that you have a true rectangle made of real-live 90 degree angles. It requires measuring, lining things up exactly right, and for me it also requires being really patient and slow.
As I was doing this, I was thinking that I should play some music to facilitate said patience and slowness. And just as I had that thought, the sun came through the window in this really beautiful way.
Oh, hey! I didn't see you there. What do you know? It's my brand-new Nano.
You might be asking yourself the question: "How small or large is that music-playing device? I just can't tell from that photo."
(Answer appears courtesy of the Department of Obvious Observations.)
The Nano is tiny, and I love it. I also love the heating pad cover. Together, they're an unstoppable team of warmth and joy.
After these photos were taken, I performed various sewing procedures, and some could argue the heating pad cover is finished.
Others could argue it needs just a little something else. (Like applique.)
Hopefully, that lovely sun will return tomorrow morning, and I can take photos of the options I'm toying with and post them here. Then, how about we all decide together? It'll be all: Better here? Better here?
Then, depending on how that goes, either the heating pad cover will go in the mail to the East Coast, or hilarity will ensue as I try new techniques and possibly ruin the whole thing. It's a win-win!
