fooling around with the fence

we had big wind the first of the week (which of course has been followed by the instant HOT of summer)

it took out an entire panel of the fence

we'd planned to work on this later in the summer on a weekend that we would have help

heh -- not so much

so yesterday it was off to the hardware store to get 2x4s and cement

hopefully by the end of this week we'll have this under control again

so, it's putting serious kinks in my plans for doing other things, but we'll survive

the pointy petals of the columbines on the Wild About Flowers piece are complete and last night I managed to get all of the round petals stitched together (those have two sides so they can be attached only at the base of the petal), and turned and the shading done with the marker -- all ready for me to start attaching them -- hopefully today sometime

have almost finished the sleeves of the Christmas sweater

time to get to that fence work before it gets too hot!

That looks like our old fence. When we couldn't afford to replace it, the hubby and his dad picked up the fallen section and nailed a 2x4 across the top after setting it just so. That held us for awhile till we were able to just redo the whole thing.
