sewn leaves and conversations with my brain
conversation with myself
me: right today I have to hoover the house, take books back to the library, drink coffee, sew lavender sachets, dust, clean up the paint mess, sort laundry, do that combined challenge, do a bit of writing.....
my brain: You don't want to do that.. lets make leaves!
me: No I have to sew those lavender sachets, clean the house...
my brain: you don't have any lavender.
me: I can still sew the sachets.
my brain: Nah lets play with that branch in the corner that I made you drag home.
me: I have work to do.
my brain: Lets make leaves or I will play "I kissed a girl" all day on your internal radio..off key with only half the words!
me: you wouldn't
my brain: "I kissed a girl and I liked it...mumble mumble.. cherry chap stick"
me: *facepalm* .... fine.. lets make leaves
my brain: yay!
So I made two leave from some scraps of pale green fabric, and some random red buttons, and sewed them onto a piece of the branch I brought home with me on Saturday. I don't know what I'm going to do with it or if I will sew more leaves, but the idea popped into my head and wouldn't leave me alone until I made leaves.
