Draft dodgers

21 Oct

You may have noticed that I haven’t really posted anything here in some time. That’s because I haven’t been doing any house projects. I’m working like a fiend right now (saving up for heating oil bills) and the only decorative thing I’ve been doing is needlepointing.

How some ever, last weekend a couple of friends came over and we had a little sewing group to work on creating draft dodgers — those rolls of fabric filled with (in this case) kitty litter that you put on your windows and doors to try to keep the drafts out (see heating oil).

I managed to make four — enough for the two windows in the parlor. I have all the sewing gear and kitty litter sitting there and am hoping to get up the gumption to do more soon-ish. The parlor and dining room are by far the coldest rooms in the house, so getting those done is my first priority. I hope to sew two for all the windows in the house (22 windows, so 44 dodgers) plus some for some of the closed off rooms’ doors this fall/winter. We’ll see how that goes.
