final ending and projects moving along
it was strange to walk through the empty house -- I don't remember ever being in it before the furniture was moved in when I was a child
it goes on the market tomorrow, and hopefully in the next couple of weeks, someone will buy it
on to the next chapter!
this hand cut, hand painted metal skunk hung in my dad's garage, and my daughter has always loved it because it reminds her of the conversations she used to have with her grandpa when he would change the oil in her car while she was in college
while we were cleaning out the house she asked if she could have it and they said yes
it fit very nicely into this 12 inch shadow box frame, and she plans to hang it in the area of her basement where they have their "bar" for entertaining -- kind of appropriate in my head -- the skunk originally was on a race car that my dad worked on that was driven by a guy that owned a real bar here in northern Colorado
full circle little skunk!
I had worked all around it with 3 rows of size 15 (tiny) beads, but it just didn't lay flat, so yesterday I ripped that out
I'll try again with just 2 rows of delicas -- and it will be easier to do the fringing with those as well
