My husband, Roger and I watch the news every night...and you are probably wondering what does the news have to do with my blog? Well, right now there is quite a "to-do" about the new commercials from both Hillary and Obama about that 3:00 a.m. call! I say that if they had one of my pretty lamps next to their bed, they could turn it on and ANSWER THAT DARN PHONE!!!
Politics aside, I have made another lampshade and there is a picture of it below. I love this shade, and again, I want to keep it! And I hope someone will love it as much as I do!!! When I make a shade, I start by looking through the fabrics I have; when I find a fabric I want to use, I put it together with a frame and then start the process by lining the ribs with a matching or complimentary fabric and attach the lining for the shade itself...then on goes the pretty outside fabric I had chosen, then the embellishments, like beads or lace. When I am happy with what it looks like, I finish off the inside with a braid around the top and bottom and attach a button with my signature and year it was made. That's about it in a nutshell!
Now that I am blogging, I am meeting a lot of very nice people...and I am seeing a lot of things that I never knew existed! Like Cathy from "Tadpoles and Teacups." I found her blog from Laurie's Charming Designs. She makes these wonderful little people out of paper mache...you'll have to check out her blog at tadpolesandteacups.blogspot.com.
