foiled and foiled again
Why is it that I am always busy but I don't seem to be getting anything accomplished!
I finally decided what to do with the magnolia leaves, paring it all down to the basics, and got the wood cut and sanded so the metal plate will 'float' away from the wall and the hangers and was ready to put it all together and the last bit of the adhesive would NOT come out of the tube. So, now, I'm waiting for new adhesive to arrive.
Drove out to the nursery Sunday, about a 30 minute drive, to find they were closed. Closed on Sunday. You know, that day when people are off work and have time to work in the yard and garden, but that's what they do out here in the country. Because...church. As if that's not bad enough, the feed store and the hardware store here both close at noon on Saturday. About the only thing open on Sunday is the grocery store, the pharmacy, and the gas stations. So, no, I did NOT get my tomatoes and peach tree. And I still need to get the last yard of dirt.
I did finally get the cast glass chicken head glued to the can to
force over the neck that originally held a gazing ball (I'm guessing)
in this iron sun stand that I picked up at an estate sale. My little
piece of country folk art. I had wanted to glue it onto the hood of the truck for a hood ornament but the husband wouldn't let me.
And finally got an email from the art consultant yesterday asking if us vendors had received our purchase orders from A & M and if so did we have trouble logging into the link provided. Still no PO for me. As I said before, I am hesitant to get out the model making stuff even though I did for the leaf that failed so spectacularly, because I may be having to start on the art work for the small animal hospital job but I'm anxious to start on some new panels and spring being here is also calling me outdoors and every project outdoors is major so consequently I'm just piddling around trying to do small things to fill the time.
That may be why I feel like I'm wasting my time...no major progress to be seen on any front.
