Back to the Grindstone
The CHAIR is finished! It's not as extensively beaded as I had originally planned, but it's definitely cute. And cute is important, right? Very pink-and-purple, with hearts and everything. We were supposed to give it a clever name, so I called it "Love Seat." Which is almost clever.
The Love Seat will be featured for sale in the Chair Affair auction on April 8th, which is a benefit for the Portland Community Warehouse. For more info, and some amazing photos of last year's chairs, see their website: http://communitywarehouse.org/chairaffair/
So now, it's back to the grindstone for me. The Light project. Okay, you've guessed by now... it's a lamp. With beading all around the glass globe. It's been frustrating, but after a few days away from it, I think I can see it more objectively now. It's pretty nice, and everyone else seems to think it's done. Of course, I know better. It's NOT done, but it will be. Now I have a few days to add to it, and then I'll glue it to the glass at the end. Hmmm, but first I actually have to make some new web pages before Wednesday night. Oh well, it was fun visiting the Grindstone. Back in a few...
