My art room is the temporary home of all my refugee kitchen items and pantry staples so painting or sculpting are out of the question. Same goes for sewing – the sewing table is in the art room and the microwave is where the sewing machine should be. I have two needlepoint projects on the go, but I do them in the evening on the couch next to my husband so I already get enough of that.
I don’t do nothing very well. I had to come up with a project outdoors. I didn’t want to give up completely on the garden quite yet and had done all the yard work that our short season would allow until I’m ready to put the garden to bed for the winter.
Puttering around the garden in quiet desperation I noted a thin spot in the hedge around our yard. I have, in the past few years, already filled two other thin spots in the hedge with whimsical fences – the family fence and the deer fence. Obviously, to be consistent, the other gaps needed to be fence-filled. Right?
So while tradesmen ripped my kitchen apart, I bought some cedar and pulled out the band saw. I made a moose.
My husband also suggested two more wood projects and I came up with one as well, so I have a couple more years of cedar fence art keeping me occupied.
