Overdue Pictures

Woohoo! I am still feeling good. We lazed around yesterday, but today we went out and installed 10 more sections of fence along the property line. We’ll have to go back and buy more before the ground freezes, probably some time early this week, so we can work on it over the Thanksgiving holiday. I would really love to get back to the beginning of the woods this year, but it is a total of over 200 feet and the fence sections are only 3 feet. We’ll see, but I am awfully motivated right now. I feel like I can do anything!

Now, even though it was overcast this afternoon, I hung up the angel and snowflake faux stained glass pieces that I completed last week and snapped some pictures for you.

The angel suncatcher will go to my Mom for Christmas, so I tried to make her hair and skin tones closer to mine. The snowflakes will hang in my cubicle in the openings where there will eventually be plastic window inserts but are right now just open. Either that, or they will hang on our backdoor with everything else. 🙂

I also had Terry use his digital SLR camera with some of this special lighting goodies to get a photo of the mirror that I stained for my Gram for Christmas. Once again, I’ve had this kit for years, but fortunately the stains did not dry out, they just evaporated a bit. I had enough to complete the design, though just barely with the golden yellow color. I would love to do one of these for me, if Dimensions still makes them. Super easy, with a great looking result!

… Christmas biscornu!

I finished this little bugger on Saturday night. Putting it together was a little bit of a challenge, mostly when I got near the end of sewing it shut. Whew! It only measures 1 inch or just larger than a U.S. quarter. Is this the tiniest biscornu you’ve ever seen? It’s the smallest I have and will ever finish, I’ll tell you that much! 😆

And now, just for Outi, a range of different biscornu sizes. The smallest is the one I just finished, the next is the one Outi stitched for me for my birthday, the third is what I used to consider “small” for biscornus (stitched by Rosa Bjarna) and the largest one is one that I stitched and would consider a fairly “regular” sized biscornu.
