Outstanding! (about having sold the set)...can't wait to see what's next...you should have an opening reception that is just one big pizza party ;)
On another, but related note, have you ever soldered aluminum? I've read it's possible and smallparts.com even sells a kit supposedly, but I've heard it's really difficult and not that great of results...just wondering if you've ever played with it or know someone who has.
About time!...just kidding, I'm sure you've been plenty busy. I love the new pieces though...those long, exaggerated necks are great. Do you have an image with a hand holding one...just for the sake of scale?
Hi Frankie. We had a good holiday. I'm happy to not have to go back to teaching for another week. The boys are back in school. We are enjoying our new puppy, "Balta." She is an all black cocker. Sooooooooo cute. Noah would love her. Happy New Year to you and Jill and Noah. I hope 2009 is an improvement over 2008. Hey, post a picture of a cutter instead of your portrait. Maybe I can get all U of I folks to do the same! Hugs, Billie
