This is my first piece which I turned into a brooch.
My next two pieces the girls loved so I let them keep them. We turned them into necklaces. I'll have to retrieve them at some point over the weekend to take photos.
I then decided I'd try to make a bracelet. I wasn't very good at cutting the pieces of glass. And trying to cut 6 or 7 pieces of identical size glass was beyond me so I decided to go for different sizes. I did make one more piece but forgot to take it home with me. It was rather difficult when the pieces came out of the kiln as several of us struggled to recognise our own pieces. I did recognise other people's pieces but I couldn't remember some of my own.
Anyway, heres the bracelet:
I'm a little concerned the pieces is a little big but I've got big wrists so it may work okay.
Here's my favorite and most succesful piece. I'll keep this one for myself.
And here are my failures:The were supposed to be for the girls but the blue one failed completely and the pink one I used a silver paper heart on pink stone which I shoudn't have done apparently.
So now we normally go out. Our family tradition is to take the girls to the cinema. This year their grandparents wanted to take them to an event which involves a bonfire, a Meatloaf concert (I expect it's not the real 'Meatloaf') and fireworks. So Simon and I have got a night to ourselves. We've decided to go to the cinema but struggled to find a film to watch. Most of them are halloween themed or scary or kids films. None of which I like.
So now to my next decision. I need to take some knitting. My current secret project is not suitable for cinema knitting. I can carry on with my plain sock but I kind of fancy starting a new scarf in Manos Silk Blend. So I'm off upstairs to wind the yarn and do a quick swatch so I can cast on before we go to the cinema. I've got some gorgeous colours of Silk Blend in my stash. Now, which colours shall I choose?
