Or “no guns with these roses,” or “there were roses,” or “La vie en rose.” Any other rose-related music you can think of?
Update on your reception table roses, Esther. I’m working away at them slowly. Here’s my work station.
I’m now the proud owner of a dual temp hot gun, thanks to this project. I’ve cut up the first 50 hymns from the hymnal for the roses I’ve made so far, or the petals I have pre-cut. Tonight I cut petals for a bit before starting to glue. I’m going off this basic pattern, minus the the wire and ribbon.
I’m about a quarter of the way to how many we need. A crackin’ I must get.
I have a Townes Van Zandt youtube playlist going in the background. Several bands came together for a Townes Van Zandt tribute set at the end of Red Wing last weekend. I didn’t know I knew any of his songs, but apparently he gets covered a lot. One of exactly two songs that I know and love by Lyle Lovett is a TVZ cover and the Steel Wheels chose to open the tribute set with the same song. So I’ve decided to learn more Townes Van Zandt songs while making roses. The cats are asleep, the housemate is out, and laundry is tumbling in the dryer. Earlier in the evening I worked in a couple gardens. Tomorrow I’m off to a wedding for a high school friend and to see you, Rach. Huzzah.
Love you always,
