Don’t make something unless it is both necessary and useful; but if it is both necessary and useful, don’t hesitate to make it beautiful.
Chip, chip, chip.
I’ve finished off one leaf section, done a section of stem, and started a second leaf section. That leaves the rest of the second leaf section, a third leaf section, a flower section and a couple of stem sections. And then I can move on to the next step!!!!!
But I am making progress, and it’s medicinal progress. Strong, purgative medicine, which is ensuring by a long course of treatment that I never do anything so foolish again. (One day I shall tell you the history of how this gargoyle came to be. Bring popcorn.)
Curtain lining: no progress (although I probably should do them before summer, in case of more than three days’ sun).
