Curly Q's and Swirls
I bought this anvil and hammer at an auction a week ago and when I got home my son told me that it's not an anvil but a piece of a rail road track. Hhhmm...he is right but it was used for an anvil and will be used as such in my sewing room. I've had a long desire to work with metal but "life" happens and that desire has been delayed in being fulfilled. Now, I'm getting a taste of it at least.
I've been a pounding away on all kinds of things and while I was making some hooks to display items at the Wayne Art Show these began to develop.
Then today when I made a message board in a frame that had a big gap in it's ornate frame, one of my new curly-q's came in handy for an embellishment to go over the gap. I was so happy! And, I can't wait to find a use for more of my swirls and curls!
