More Crosses

These ones are made from Horse Show nails...can ya believe it...I didn't get mine all finished this time...We were at the Merry Go Round Glass shop again..I cannot get enough of that place I tell ya....this time only Sandy and I got to go so the Owner Vicki sat and crafted with us...it was quite nice I must say...

 here are her creations..


my favorite one...



and here she is holding one of them




Sandy had a great time and made some wonderful creations too

isn't this beautiful?  I love the butterfly center



this one is so cute too



mine like I said I din't get done



I want to mount this one and do more to it..




I just need to attach the big orange deal to the middle ...so close to being done.



but you get the idea...these were so fun to make and work with..and crafting with Vicki was a perfect change too. They offer ladies night the 2nd Thursday of every month...wont' you join us if you can...

DeeDee,
These are really neat. I live in horse country so I will try to make one for a neighbor that loves horses. Do you solder the nails together in the middle? I need the details girlie.

OH DeeDee,
THOSE CROSSES ARE STUNNING...I NEED ONE WITH A BUTTERFLY IN THE CENTER.
BEFORE AMY DIED SHE WAS IN THE PROCESS OF COVERING ONE WALL OF HER LIVING ROOM IN DIFFERENT SIZE CROSSES...ALL HANDMADE.
SHE HAD A LOT OF FRIENDS WHO SHE GAVE A LOT OF HOUSE KEYS TO....BAD MISTAKE! AND THE CROSSES WERE STOLEN OFF HER WALL, WHOEVER DID IT HAS TO LIVE WITH THEMSELVES.
BUT I HAD TWO CROSSES THAT I BOUGHT AT HOBBY LOBBY AND I AM GOING TO COVER THE SMALL AREA OF WALL BY MY FRONT DOOR WITH CROSSES.
TOMORROW I WILL E MAIL YOU A PICTURE OF ANOTHER CROSS YOU CAN MAKE...MY MOTHER LEARNED HOW TO MAKE THESE....AND THEY ARE ABOUT 22 TO 24" HIGH...YOU'LL LOVE IT.
I AM JUST GETTING AROUND TO SEE YOUR VACATION PICTURES.
HUGS AND LOVE
SIMPLY DEBBIE
