Side view early this morning before the cut down leaves were added. Final placement shots coming tomorrow.
Nick H suggested I try to find a way to cut down the jumbo leaves into smaller sizes. I painted up a bunch and then figured out how to make the largest into faux small clusters. (top) I kept adding single leaves, snipping off threes into twos, cutting down jumbos into faux clusters, and repositioning leaves today. About half the acorns are capped.
COUCH TIME ART BONUS:
Friend and appreciated Halfland supporter, Gretchin Lair's Birthdayplaooza rages on with the introduction of "SQUEEEE!" (of the Portland SQUEEES), her very OWN pin cushion (as soon as I've topped her with every color thread, needles, pins, and other sewing notions) made of knit glove, wool felted features, and cut up felt balls (some of the very ones Hila sent me all the way from Israel!) She'll be on her way to you soon, gl! Happy stitching! Squeeeeeeeeeeee!
