Thanks, New Fence, 1448
Thank you all for your kind messages, note, and conversations following my Mother's death. She had a good life, almost 97, which was full of adventures, travels, and experiences, and each of us 4 kids all turned out OK 8-)) .
You may remember that a wind storm a while ago, blew down our fence that shielded us from the alley and the handy, but ugly dumpster. Well, we are back to enjoying the view out our back door. DH and I had some
heated discussions conversations about wood or vinyl, and he won the argument differences of opinion -- it turned out OK. If there wasn't a tree overhead with many birds roosting overhead, this might make a good sitting area. We are lucky cold weather did not occur to delay the process. It looks like a small job but involved hoists, chains, a jackhammer to remove old posts and concrete. Thanks Mike!
However, there is an unexpected benefit to that fence. I am happy!!! Ta tahhhhhh!
This is a small piece I've been working on, Jackie Robinson, Strip and Slash technique. The finished size is about 50 x 57, and there are 120 blocks, so you see, the blocks are small. It's basicly a Split 9-Patch. It's only pin basted in this photo.
