September 25: Leaf chain
September 26, 2012 § Leave a comment
On the way home from the library, J. collected a handful of red maple leaves that fell on the ground, so we decided to make a leaf chain. He had a good idea but it didn’t work, mostly because I didn’t understand it. I think he wanted me to make it like a daisy chain, but it fell apart. On my second try, I used copper wire and some beads, and here is our first autumn decoration, as documented in the grainy photos, on the wall next to the Virgin Mary who traveled to us from Tucson, and whose nose had already been damaged when D. bought her at a yard sale.
