Copper wire and a blowtorch

I treated myself to a copy of  Metal-Embellishments with Mary Hettmansperger it took ages to come but was worth waiting for.  I have Marys book Fabulous Woven jewellry and love her work but watching her demonstrating is so much easier. 
I was inspired to get out my copper wire and the blow torch.  My little copper piece is sitting on hand dyed wool felt from Oliver Twists and once embellished a bit will become the focal for a book cover. 

I am sure the pain in my little finger will go away soon, I got a bit over excited and stuck my finger in the flame of the torch.

From me to you 2

As so few people commented on my bookmark offer, I will be sending everyone a bookmark.  Rebecca and Susan, would you send me you snail mail address.

Thanks to those very few people who still read my blog, I feel like 'Billy no mates'.

***Susan, thank you for sending your address, your bookmark is in the mail

From me to you

I have been blogging for a while now and made many friends so I thought it was time I gave away one or two things.  Does anyone remember this post bookmark-anyone ?  I have some of those left and would like to give away three this week.  Simply leave a comment and on Sunday I will randomly pick three names.  These are light and easy to mail so I don't mind where in the world you live.
