A Good Day Here

I want to tell you all about the great customer service I got from www.shoppellon.com.
I ordered 5 yards of black Lutradur from them, & they sent white by accident. I let them know, & they are sending the black & told me to keep the white! NICE!!
I promised Kathy that I would post a couple of pictures of the wall treatment in Warren's bar. We used 2 different glazes over the base paint color to get a leather look.
I must love those colors, because I have used them a LOT!
I finished up the book cover. I put a vinyl layer over the top to make it more durable, & more comfortable to hold.
The feather is the backside,
& here it is open, with the built-in book mark.
We went to the Glacier Brewhouse tonight for dinner. We were going to take my youngest son, Corey & his girl Tasha to dinner, but Tasha came down with the flu. We stopped by to drop off his birthday card (he'll be 32 on Saturday), & she was pretty sick. They missed a good meal. I had Caribbean Jerk Prawns, & Warren had Shrimp Jambalaya. We shared a Peanut Butter Pie for dessert. It's the best dessert in town.
When we got home, I started another small project. This is only 5"x7". It is multiple layers. First was Timtex, then a painted cloth, topped with fused Angelina fibers, then a painted dryer sheet, Sliver thread bits,black tulle, another piece of Angelina fused in a swirl pattern, then quilted with a variegated metallic thread. I anchored it on a framed canvas, & did thread-play to hold the 4 fused glass pieces down. Then I started scattering glass beads across the surface. This is as far as I got tonight. I worked on it for about 5 hours. I intend to turn it into a clock, & will call it "Dream Time". It will be one of my pieces in my show in July.

Your mini project remind me of a zen garden viewed from the sky.

It is pretty just as it is but I think that giving it life as a clock face it a great idea!

Dumb question? What is lutradur? I bought mom and I each a copy of Michelle's calendar too, they're so cute. Love you!

Wow, this was a busy and good day!

I can't imagine starting a new project after coming home from a big dinner out.
You are one energetic lassie!

That is exactly how I want my paint to look, I went to Lowes and did figure it out. Now though, my room is back together, I'll get back to it when we get home from Florida after Easter.
