Mermaids



To excuse my absence, my camera has been on the blink, but is all better now. Easter Sunday we celebrated a friends 70th birthday! She loves mermaids, so I made her what you see here. I thought long and hard and prayed over every part, and I hope she likes it. She is the third one in on the second shot...a very lovely lady.

I teach again next weekend, so apart from the Beryl Taylor stuff to finish up tonight and tomorrow, I will be trying to find all the bits and pieces I need for the class. It is Burning Issues, my very favorite. Hot embossing plastic, soldering irons, burned transparencies... what's not to love! I have started the charms for In this House Yahoo group, the last thing will be embossing plastic, or maybe solder if I get brave. I should get those up by next Monday, I hope. It is nice to have a little something to work on whenever... as soon as I can find the space, I will set up my loom and get something woven too. I haven't done that in way too long.
