Inspired

Check out Linda's Blog http://lindajos.blogspot.com/ for some wonderful Silver Bella inspiration. The idea below comes from Rebecca Sower http://www.rebeccasower.typepad.com/ I think it's a fab twist on Inchies, loads more depth and interest. In the absence of a cigar box I attached mine to the back of an old book and then had a good old rummage in my 'stuff' box, it's surprising what was in there, I really must visit a little more often!
I love the winding, twisting and threading that this kind of project invloves

I took this class from Rebecca... still need to finish mine. I really like your take on it.
It's great to be able to take inspiration from events because of blogland, when I am unable to attend.
