it's official...

I hate Thangles. I have yet to get an accurate hst with these stupid things. Fortunately I took a class from Sally Schneider and have a gizmo. I can still use the 2.5 inch strips to make 2 inch hst with the gizmo. There's more than one way to make hst!!

a scene challenge

So, the challenge for the Timeless Treasures guild that meets four times a year was to do a scene. To most people that means a landscape. I know there are lots of people that like them but I think most of them are sort of boring unless they're way over the top and super detailed. I'm not going to do an ordinary or over the top landscape. A scene can also be a still life or a portrait. I decided to do a still life.

I kinda like the way this one turned out. I really like the little spot of sparkle. It's a freebie fake diamond tennis bracelet and a small pin the pin part broke off of. I hand sewed it on with invisible thread. That was a pain.

Don't you just love the way the lampshade turned out? Does it look crooked to you?
