  • AnnDy commented on the Fresh Pick “Abalone”   2 years, 5 months ago

    I very much like your picks, and would love to see the put-together jewel! Have you a photo? As for dogs, we have a 70-lb. “what?” mix (he’s just beautiful, everyone remarks on it) and a 5-lb female deer chihuahua – guess which is the boss? Both are rescue dogs. The first one found me, my [...]

  • AnnDy commented on the Design “Cobblestone Path”   4 years ago

    try folksongs for names – and for inspiration, too! “Black is the color of my truelove’s hair…”

  • AnnDy commented on the Design “Wedding Comb”   4 years ago

    I thought these were going to contain some assembly notes, or pix. I am disappointed.

  • AnnDy commented on the Design “Busy Busy”   4 years ago

    I like the design, but one worry/question: how do you get wire which is soft enough to allow for this much bending (without breaking), and yet strong enough to wear, by which I mean, what if it gets caught on someting, like a cuff button, and before you know it – YANK – you’ve lost a [...]

  • AnnDy commented on the Design “Heartthrob”   4 years ago

    Rebecca – very nice! I love the style – it’s that kind of thing that really wealthy people tend to wear, like blue jeans with a satin-and-velvet shirt. It doesn’t follow or set trends – it transcends them!

  • AnnDy commented on the Design “Desert Nuggets”   4 years ago

    Jill, gorgeous work! Looks good enough to eat – well, eat, if you happen to be a troll – but then, all the trolls I know would say, “Aww! Too pretty to eat!”
    By the way, can you recommend a good online source for sheet copper?

  • AnnDy commented on the Design “Sun and Sea”   4 years ago

    Nice art, Debra! You ought to show that to a mosaic designer and get it replicated by your swimming pool! Or if you don’t have a swimming pool, use it as a design for a tabletop fountain! Guess what I’m trying to say is it looks so good, it should “make babies,” i.e., have more art [...]

  • AnnDy commented on the Design “Dusk Filigree Ring”   4 years ago

    Good design, clear tutorial, all “pro” level! Nice job! My thoughts: cheapskate that I am, I’d tend to cut up the filigree and use only at the edges, so no ‘waste’ occurs by concealing filigree under stone. By the way, are any beaders also experienced in the curling of paper strips which result in filigree? I [...]

  • AnnDy commented on the blog post The Lima Boys Turn One   4 years, 1 month ago

    About the little reader, Douglas – have you introduced him to the Terry Pratchett goodie “Where’s my Cow?” Pratchett is an adult author who can think like a child. Yummy!

  • AnnDy commented on the blog post Updates to the Garden…   4 years, 1 month ago

    More talk is always good- cross-fertilization is the growth medium of so much creativity! But let me segue – I asked once before if it would be possible/legal/correct to take a screenshot of a “fresh pick” and print that out on fabric, using the result as a quilt square? I know it is physically possible, but [...]

  • Just love the peridot/amethyst combo, so nice with copper! A friend has waterfalls of curly black hair – I can just see these with her hair; hope you don’t mind if I make some similar for her, but longer.

  • Thank you, Mary & Bella! I was a little scared to have another surgery after my heart operation, but my doctor is absolutely confident & that makes me think good thoughts! I will post pix of the designs – they are “power” designs with the strongest elements I could find. Thanks again!for your caring!

  • I put a post here but now it’s gone . . . what did I do? Well, anyway, I had this idea: all the Fresh Picks remind me of QUILT SQUARES!! It’s possible to print out onto fabric, I know. Ken, Steve, etc., what about it? Could it legally be done? Maybe with a tie-in [...]
