I'm still working on my lion and am putting him together referencing the photos David took in Tanzania. I'm glad I chose a light colour rather than the medium caramel in the book. His will be a summer lion from the Serengeti. His mane will be caramel coloured though and yes it does go under his chin and all the way round his head which for some reason I was doubtful about till I studied the photos.
We have also been making headway with wedding props, the seed packets designs are with the printer and we have commissioned a reclaimed pine display board from a local salvage yard. There's still a lot to do; I'm waiting for warmer temperatures for seed sowing and beehive making. Whenever I have a window time-wise I am off to swim lengths or Max and I hang out whilst I crochet or knit. Tomorrow we are going to have tea and cakes with the daughters and hopefully have a one to one with Patrick in the land of Orange courtesy of FaceTime.
