(Almost) finished!!

Over the last couple days, I re-read (for the umpteenth time) The Far Pavilion by M. M. Kaye. One of my favourite books! Then Joanne and I went to Reel Monday where we saw Belle which sort of tied in. All of which gave me a good excuse to let me delay working on the beach level!

But all your support (for which I thank you) encouraged me to finally finish the beach area.

In order to stand the clock case upright, I set the back on two books and a sheet of wood so it would stand upright as there are two feet on the front of the case.

I mixed sand with glue and spread it on the 'beach' shelf:

Then I added the driftwood to the back of the shelf along with the seagull and the basket of netting. - then seashells in the forefront.

I say "almost finished" because my dear friend, Cheryl in Nova Scotia, read my last blog and has mailed me some very small pieces of sea glass that I'll add later. So now I don't have to bury my big pieces of sea glass to make them more to scale.

So here is the final piece!

And here it is with the clock front in place. (Hope you can ignore the chair back that's in the picture.)

I'm very pleased with how it all turned out.

      His wife is pleased with it and thinks he'll love it...but we won't know until early April.
      Who knew I could actually finish something a month and a half ahead of time!?! LOL
