All yesterday, this dratted song was playing in my head.
I have 64 leaves to make, so a music track in my head was helpful to keep me going, but now I can’t get rid of it! Does anyone have any other leaf-making sound tracks to suggest?
Anyway, the template is done, about a third of the leaves are stitched and I’ve got a few cut out. The rest are drawn up, sandwiched and pinned, waiting for another mammoth bout at the sewing machine.
The Husband is off work for the next 4 days, so I’ll be spending most of my time with him instead of my sewing machine. We have a ‘fun’ project in mind: the block of land next door is vacant, owned by a construction company, and they have used it not only for the storage offered by the large shed on site, but also to dump all sorts of oddments of construction material, leftovers, and bits and pieces that make my recycling heart glad and my acquisitive eye gleam. I have sought and received permission from the owners to go in and help myself to whatever I fancy, since it will save him having to cart it away! Woo hoo! Chook house and chook yard fencing, here we come.
It’s quite a labour; much of the stuff is overgrown and tangled, and naturally, we’re doing this in snake season, so despite the soaring temperatures and humidity, we’ll be fully swaddled in heavy duty work clothes, boots, gloves, sunnies and hats. But almost everything we need is there, and I’m sure there’ll be one or two things we don’t actually ‘need’ but which I will grab because I’m sure I’ll be able to think of something to do with them down the track.
Time to go and trim a few more leaves. (Nooooo! not that song again!)
