Loft nest

I played with the pile of stuff for the loft bed long enough to decide I needed a life-size example.  Making an unmade, messy bed is more difficult than a neatly made bed.

I fashioned a pallet on the living room floor, then occupied it for a couple of hours.

After I picked it up and put everything away I took the mini pile back to my workable.  I've been fussing with it for days, needle sculpting folds, and sewing all the components together.

It looks like a nest.  I like it.

Granny squares

I know I said I was  going to complete this build with nothing more than items from my stash, but look at these granny squares.

I envisioned them from the get-go, but can't crochet.  Thank you, Michelle, for the custom order.

You'll see the only thing I got done was cutting down the sectional (again), reforming the back corner into a curve (air dry clay), and upholstering.  The rounded corner was difficult, there are a couple of obvious diagonal seams in the straight sections, but the afghans cover them.

A Milo update... Kate's ex-feral kitten is a big marshmallow.
