I'm always the first human up in the morning at our house. My first task is to take the dogs outside so they can do their business. Next, I make coffee and I give the dogs and cats their breakfast. Then, I usually sit in one of the leather chairs in the family room, my trusty coffee cup in hand, and I peruse Facebook and see what my favorite blogs have to offer.
This is what I see this morning:
Maggie is sitting on a mat on the radiator, Ruby is curled up in the far corner of the sofa ... and that heap of green down-filled throw on the near end of the sofa isn't just a heap ...
It's Winnie's nest. She got in there all by herself.
On another slightly-related subject, I don't know what possessed me to think that I could slipcover my sofa in cream colored fabric and actually live with it. (posts about this are HERE and HERE.)
There's a slight texture to the dropcloth fabric that I used to make the cushion covers, it traps and tenaciously holds onto dog hair, and every black dog hair that it holds is perfectly visible. To combat this, we usually have a quilt folded and tucked in on top of the cushions (it's in the wash right now). Long term, I will have to come up with another fabric if I really want to slipcover this sofa ... one that's more animal hair friendly than this. Short term, I will just keep washing the quilt whenever it needs it.
