Jon, I suspect that once the room is in shape you'll be drawn into it and think of things you want to work on there.

Charmion, the garden transformation sounds amazing. Right now keeping things alive in the extreme dry heat is a big challenge. One tree lost some leaves after getting to dry, but this is what they do and I think it will recover (it's in a pot, awaiting transplant in the fall). I've been spraying aphids off of the okra and today I took some metal fence posts, a roll of chicken wire, and a piece of wire edge fencing and built a kind of support for the various cucumber plants that are just now putting out the climbing tendrils and starting to grow flowers. Those are the plants I'm holding out hopes for this autumn.

I'm finishing up some of the fitted design masks; I saw a video this morning that is the first one that I found to be a bad example of construction and technique. I looked at the remarks and am pretty sure that any critical remarks have been removed; no experienced person doing this much sewing would use some of her techniques. (No iron, for starters). I didn't leave remarks to test my theory, but know that there are a lot of crappy two-layer poor-fabric-choice masks out there thanks to this woman. Too bad.
