new tiny turret block and
one of the bosses

I also added some additional adhesive film to the interior and then sewed the whole thing onto a mesh backing and used brads to affix the art to the mesh. This was part that made me nervous - because the sewing makes holes in the paper, it's important to do it once, correctly. For the most part, it turned out well. One area I had to redo because the paper got caught (This really is about the maximum paper size I can handle alone.) Overall though - it seems to have worked and it's up in the wall!
|The bottom border - still getting used to the sewing a little bit|
|But the top borders turned out better (whew!)|
|My friend took this candid of us - I'm taking nature photos |
and Honey is so happy :) .
|One side of the mountain was snow covered while the other side looked like this?!?|
|This isn't from a hike, but I thought it was strange - the sun is bright red|
even though it's not at the horizon.
"What do you mean you don't need my help sewing, Human?"
I also did something a little sad this week. I planted Sunny's final Christmas tree by her grave in the yard. Sunny Loooooved her "kitty toy tree." It was one of her favorite things, and from the time she was a kitten she looked forward to its return every year. I buy potted trees, and this was Sunny's last tree that I've been babying inside through the winter. I wanted it to be planted close to her so that far into the future her Christmas tree will be near her, and even if I ever move, there will be something beautiful to mark her grave. When the spring comes I'll add flowers nearby.
