Here's the treillage piece finished and mounted on the orange - in a way, it's a continuation of the colours for February's challenge. I'm not sure what I want to do with it now, so I've pinned it up on the wall in the studio. I kind of like the threads left over but I'll probably tidy them up and make an envelope-type clutch bag with it.
When we visited Malta some years ago, we had a day trip around the island and stopped at a glassworks. The artisans had cut these bits of glass off the lips of some vases they were making and I thought they were fascinating and asked if I could have them - they sold me the lot for 10 pence.
I remembered them as I was struggling to finish the coral piece and unfortunately you will have to wait for the next post tomorrow to see it as the batteries in the camera need recharging. It's also pinned up on the studio wall as I'm not convinced the piece works yet.
