I've got you covered

They're done! I'm so happy.
The picture I had in my head matches pretty well with how these turned out. I love it when that happens.

I also love that I spent a total of $4, and needed no supplies for this project aside from thread, and now I have a new set of slipcovers that are not only way cuter than the original ones, they're washable, too.

Ah, small pleasures.

While my sewing machine was whirring away this morning, I was listening to Phil Ochs and Pete Seeger, two of my favorite folksingers to hear when my faith in my country could use some bolstering. At the end of the night, I'm hoping there will be joyful tears in my eyes. I'm hoping that after eight years of an administration committed to crushing science, enlightenment, creativity, and peace, we can usher in a new era in America. I'm nervous, though. I took solace in these words:

What's that I hear now, ringing in my ears
I've heard that sound before
What's that I hear now, ringing in my ears
I hear it more and more
It's the sound of freedom calling, ringing up to the sky
It's the sound of the old ways a-falling, you can hear it if you try...

Can you hear it, too?
