Sunny Monday in Georgia

The Spring Fling project is still going strong. I've been busy choosing colors, picking up little things I'll need for the finished product, scouring my stash for useable items. Husband Jim has joined in with his expertise - things are shaping up nicely. Now I have to get my sanding muscles into shape.

I am still working on wine bottles - because Spring Fling isn't enough on my plate, I've joined TWO swaps due May 5th:  Wine and Cheese party and Family Portraits. The only good thing - or bad, depending on your point of view - is there are just 5 of us in each swap. Meaning I don't have to make lots of things, but I also won't get lots in return. Ah, well, it's all in fun and I always enjoy seeing what others create.

We're off to Raleigh at the end of the week to spend Easter with Meghan. She's safe and sound - luckily! One tornado was within a mile of her apartment but far enough away to keep her out of harm's way. My heart goes out to all families in the wake of this devastating storm system that tore across the US last week.

Wine Bottles - Take Two

I made more wine bottles today. I like the variety here! The very front bottle is 1/24th scale while the rest are 1/12th scale. The center bottle is open and 'breathing' - see the cork on the tile ?
I still need more practice, but these are an improvement over the last batch. I still have to print up some half scale labels.

Not whining

I made wine bottles the other day - quite an experience! I had fun but I definitely need LOTS of practice. When I tried to upload a photo, I got this message "server rejected". I wonder what the heck that means! I'll try again later. (We are under a thunderstorm watch which could be affecting my internet connection.)
