Humblecrafting and housewifing

I was intending to go rowing yesterday morning, but wound up staying up late Friday evening eating pizza and playing Cards Against Humanity with the house gang (new term for the extended 2-house household plus friends who frequently visit). And then it was raining and windy when I woke up, which made for perfect weather for sleeping in a bit and indoor projects instead.

First things first, I installed the high-shank zipper foot on the sewing machine so I could finish sewing in the replacement zipper on a pair of pants.

Then I rummaged through the fabric supply, and made this hanging organizer thing:
Hang it!

I have a lot of relatives and friends who are amazing sewers and quilters, so whenever I work on a thing like this I can't help thinking that someone else could probably make something like this, except cooler or more Pinterest-worthy But whatever. This was a case where I wanted a thing so I could get the piles off my desktop, and the things for sale were uninspiring.

So now I have space in my room where I can finally get to work on quilting! That meant I could finally test out my homemade "pounce pad," which appears to work pretty well:

Homemade quilter's pounce

Other than that, I grocery-shopped right as Monterey Market hit peak madness, and cooked up a big vat of Indian food for the week.

Well of course yours would have an ant on it.

You know it! This is a cat bed, which is practice for a full-size quilt. The full-size quilt is kinda girly colors, so I figured I would make it infinitely cooler by adding in a subtle ant theme.

I love this plan. Please post pictures of the final version.
