A Little Bit of This and A Little Bit of That.........

I find it amazing at times at how fast our daily lives go by but how much I really do get accomplished..... so, with a Little Bit of This and a Little Bit of That, filling in with the Shibori
Ribbon Blog Hop and Challenge as hosted by Tanya Goodwin and spending a delightful two days
in Anne Hess's Garden Party Doll Class I also had spent time taking Arlene Lazarro's Scrapbook Bracelet class at the Palm Beach Rock and Gem Club in West Palm Beach, FL.  This was the class that Deborah, Gen and Sarah was able to take where I had work commitments.  It was delightful,
 " Pounding on copper, annealing, pounding ", what a great stress reliever.





And now..... the final project:

The Ladies also began " Metal Impressions " with Joe David at the St. Lucie Rock and Gem Club.  Deborah Apodaca, Susan Barrett, Sarah Clark Bromely, Genny Smith..... well darn, half the Ladies of the Evening group.  They actually let me " Flame On", the first night with copper fittings and our second night was working with the Rolling Mill and making impressions on the metal.

Example: 
This was using 60 grit sandpaper.  What a lovely pattern.  I think this will be dog tags........

Then of couse I cannot forget our " Under the Sea Beading Round Robin ".  I completed my portion of a lovely little Seahorse that belongs to Ruth.





And since Suzanne Bang my hand off partner was going to be at the Anne Hess doll class, we were able to exchange by hand. 

I still have to post the lovely selection I recieved from my Bead Soup 8 partner Chris Eisenberg, but that will have its own post.
