New look blog

I was cruising around on the Fire Divas site today one of the etsy groups I belong too ... and found a tutorial written by Haley of Envision on how to change the width of my blog
Once I had the blog wider... why not change the colour...

Comments? Or should I go back to the old uninspired blue.... And I finally have visible links... !

Rainy Friday....

Before we moved to NB I used to do a lot of architectural glass.... this piece is called on the fault line and has been living in a box in our garage for at least 9 years.... G is acting as VANA in the picture... Our driveway is at a steep angle and there is always a 'breeze' here so I wouldn't let G let go!... To quote the natives when we have near hurricane force winds... it's "Breezin' up a Bit"

One of the local galleries was looking for some bigger pieces so I thought this might as well spend the summer in St Andrews... but I wanted to check to see if it was OK first....

The fish are fused first then leaded in place... G & I did the woodwork....

Still yet more animals

Old MacDonald has been really busy finding new animals for his farm... since it is located in the
Bay of Fundy he thought he needed a Puffin & a fish ... ( since most of the farming around here is fish farming... ) One of the local frogs is busy hopping around checking out all the new animals...

More animals for "Old MacDonald"

For those of you who read yesterdays comments you will notice that there is a comment from a goat named Pricilla... she lives at the Happy Goat Farm in Montana... and her farm has been infested with CHICKENS!!! Poor Pricilla was most insulted that I would make chickens before I made goats.... I actually already had the goat in the kiln when she was complaining yesterday, however I'm not sure she will be pleased with the fact that I made Michael (her son) first ... as, I'm sure she figures that she is the most beautiful goat on the farm and I should be immortalizing her!

After all it is her milk that is used to make the Happy Goat Soap. And yes I realize that the horns are a bit wonky...

The wooden table was not a good background for my two tone lauscha glass pig.... (the glass is actually one of their Tri Colors....)

Old MacDonald's Farm

I have a knitted- felted red hat that I made a felted flower for... I thought the flower needed a button... I made a red and black flower for the hat... didn't like it... A couple of days ago I decided that a chicken would look nice.... well who can just make one chicken... I now have 3 chickens, 1 sheep, and a turtle... today Old Mac may get a pig to add to his/ her farm..

And yes on this farm all animals are exactly the same size!

Actually the sheep does have an eye but it's on the other side...
