I am knitting a piece of lace about 4'"X4" and mounting it between 2 pieces of glass. I think it will look nice hanging in a window and I get to try a new lace pattern and use some spendy and pretty yarn.
Last year I cut half the neck off of green glass bottles and did some pretty etching on them. I them put them in a wood try lined with copper. My mother has such a green thumb and always has cuttings in old glasses and jars. So this was for her cuttings. She asked for more at X-mas.
It is really fun and easy.
