It's been another hectic week so were just jumping straight into things here starting with Susan R's Girl On A Swing. This piece took on a life of its own after Susan decided that it looked somewhat barren and added the tree limb and the green ground below the girl. The hoop does EXACTLY what it's supposed to do-- provide an open airiness while holding the scene together. Doesn't this look as though it's floating??? Bravo!
Robert began a new Door Insert this week and he's well on his way now that the design has been drawn up and his bevels are wrapped. I always insist that a bevel border be tacked together before doing any other work on the window so the rest of the pieces can be ground to fit within the framework of the bevels. It may sound like you're working backwards but things just fit together so much more perfectly when you use this method. There's nothing worse than looking at a window with a beveled border that doesn't line up correctly.
The crab may not look like much right now but Linda L's Beach Scene has come alive with color now that the crab has been cut into the sand. It still needs some eyes painted on it to really finish it off but that will easily happen next week. This appears to be another window that will be completed when we next see it..
And last but not least is another Hexagon Window that MiMi has all ground and fitted together. This even has two rows wrapped in copper foil already! These are really flying off of the 'press' quickly now so before you know it MiMi will be cutting curves again.
And there you have it. There's been a lot of excellent work done this week and I hope this post showcased it well.
