And I would also like to thank my dear friends, Erich and Shona, for letting me take over their house...err...garage this weekend. Erich and I spent the evening cutting out giant flowers with his jigsaw. Shona cooked dinner, made us a few toddies and cheered us on!
We carved eight flowers out of one piece of 4'x8' plywood. Pretty cool! We were making so much noise with the power tools that several neighbors came by to see what we were doing. My ears were ringing for several hours after the jigsaw was turned off. I have to say, using a power tool was exhilarating and exhausting at the same time. And I woke up at 3am and had to take some Advil and put an icepack on my aching arm! But it was totally worth it. Thanks Erich and Shona!
Next steps: sanding, painting and then BOTTLE CAPS!
