Cherries Jubilee

That's what I am calling this:
I think it's way cuter in person. I used the leaf idea of Deryn Mentock. I just think they are so cute. As I am looking at this picture though I think I need to make my cherry stems shorter. That will be a weekend chore though. I was supposed to be doing flowers tonight, but my daughter asked me to go swimming with her and that sounded like an invitation I couldn't pass up. My little fingers are waterlogged as I type this. The water in the pool was just perfect. Our neighbors on the back side of us must have a wasp colony, because they fly over the brick wall and drink from our pool. So Megan and I decided to do some population control. She took the pool net and caught them as they landed on the water and I smushed them! LOL We got 17 of them! There are just a few less wasps in the world now! We worked very well as a team. Maybe one day we should try out for the amazing race! We could kick some A _ _! LOL

Love this! I'm a big fan of cherry items since I love all the 40's and pin-up inspired jewelry and clothes. This is really amazing.

Adorable necklace. And I hate wasps. At my house, they and the yellow jackets take up residence behind the shutters on my deck each summer, and I obliterate them with a foamy spray that gives me evil pleasure.

Love your recent work, Cindy. And I think the cherry stems are just fine the way they are.

Adorable! I was thinking of doing some cherries myself. My sweet mother in law just gave me some choke cherry jam so I must have cherries on the brain. You're doing such nice work Cindy. I'm so glad you could use something from my class!
