. . . to tell you. So much has happened since we last spoke. New house. New job. New niece. I will fill you in on the details but in the meantime, here's a fake pot plant I made because I've finally got my scheming mojo back . . .
I need to credit this - the pot plant is very heavily influenced by these awesome paper plants. However, you know me - why make it out of paper when you can spend hours ripping the tips of your fingers away as you painstakingly hand-stitch the whole damn thing in felt? This was also my first attempt at using artificial moss which, I discovered, is like a cross between steel wool and pink batts. It looks so soft and forgiving. The reality is so different.
I have a track record of killing pot plants, even in optimal growing conditions. This fake pot plant is destined for the downstairs bathroom which is currently cold, and doesn't get much light. The downstairs bathroom . . . that's an indication of just how much my life has changed . . .
