A Cause For Celebration!

At LAST! I have finally finished those 46 jars....nearly 2 weeks later working night & day at them. If I ever see another jar within the next 6 months, I think I'll throw it at somebody!! I really didn't believe that it could take so long to do them, but you may or may not have noticed that I have a bit of a problem....I'm a perfectionist! That has meant that each & every jar was painstakingly filled with individually made pieces, whether it be asparagus or chickpeas!! Oh dear, sometimes I really do despair of myself! Why, oh why couldn't I just have made a "resemblance" of each item..after all they were going to have coloured resin addded so surely the detail didn't matter? Sorry to say, as far as I was concerned if they were going to be attributed to me, Yes, the detail mattered...even if it drove me nuts!!

This represents just under half of them!

This asparagus jar might just show what I mean!

If not, how about the cauliflower?!

28 pictured here with another 18, at this stage, nearly completed!

Anybody want some jars filling? If so, I'm sure I can find someone who will do it for you!! :-))

Linda Carswell said...

Congratulations Linda, they look 'perfect' need to tell us you are a perfectionist,.... that shows through in anything and everything you make. I imagine the new owner of these will be very VERY happy!!

(How is your leg at the moment, all better I hope!!)

Kindest Regards, Linda
