The theme of the month challenge is jointly sponsored by Tuffnells Glass (thank you Martin et al!) and Frit Happens!

Each month the lucky winner, chosen by a random number selector, will receive a 20 gift voucher to spend on-line with Tuffnells. The draw will take place at the start of **June** so make sure you get your entries in before midnight on the last day of May to be in with a chance to win the goodies!

Please note that the entries should be new work.

So, the theme for the month for May 2012 is Things you find in the Garden.

I made this glass pansy brooch to go on one of my daughters 18th century costumes (I think they're 18th century - Portrait of a Lady)

These were fun to make, but I need (desperately) to work on the eye stalks!  I just noticed that the middle one has lost one of his eyes, sorry.  I think the righthand one with Carribean Sea is the most successful, but I'm learning Smiley

Thank you!  I hate the real things - if they get into my greenhouse they eat my orchids, and it's always the really nice one that's just coming into flower! Angry

They are a nuisance, but I have a fondness for them - we used to race them when we were kids!  (I do mean against other snails of course! Grin

I was planning to do something else but am out of time, so here's the rose I made this month. I might have another little flowery bead if I get the photo edited soon enough.



The Caribbean Sea snail is looking good!
