Loose Ends No More


I finished the little patriotic tumbler quilt!  I didn't make it in time for the 4th of July but there is always next year!
The quilting is cool, too-Yankee Doodle Dandy feathers!
 I needed earrings to match this tropical necklace so I picked through my stash of stones and shells and found a few to make some.
I think they will work as a set just fine!
 I played with some glass again.   I cut up several colors in strips and laid them on end and popped them in the microwave oven.
 Oh, yeah!  This is about 1 3/4" square-just a nice size for a pendant with pizzazz!
I tried it again in Gator/Syracuse colors.....very fun project and I can't wait to wear them!
I enjoyed a good little project-painting these ceramic frogs!  I looked up tree frog eyes on Google so I could paint them realistically.   I decided to paint them as I wanted because there are so many kinds of eyes that anything I could think of was realistic!  lol  I will set these guys in my flowers pots out front!  I wonder if they will intimidate the real tree frogs I have out there!
