Tod was off “camping with the boys” this weekend, so I had the apartment to myself and after I had cleaned and tidied to my satisfaction, I had time on my hands.
So I made some stuff.
A pillow cover (and two pillow forms). This ties together the reddish zabuton floor cushions with the lovely Thai elephant Sachiko gave us. It also fulfills part of my pledge to “Use What You Have” for April. You can see some closeups of this pillow on Flickr.
A lamp. The socket was formerly duct taped to my workspace. I wired on a switch, bought an extension arm and a bulb protector. Then I wired some brass mesh and beads to the frame. Not sure I like this, but it’s a little more interesting than “bare bulb in cage.” There are snaps of the lamp turned on (so bright!) at Flickr.
After these creations, it looks like my environment is developing a bit of a red & gold glow.
I can’t decide which of these qualifies for WhipUp’s Whiplash - they both sort of fit.
