The Reveal::


                    I finished the lamp shade yesterday evening, during the Super Bowl. Two things, I discovered while doing this project. One, a drum like shade would have been easier. Maybe, I wanted that spacing effect more than gathered? You know what I mean? That's fine.. I used what I had on hand. Laura, from 52 Flea told me she has made several of these lamp shades before. She used charms to embellish her shades. That sounded cool too. So, many possibilities here. Also, rather than covering the paper brim of the top and bottom of the shade. I left it naked with the paper showing it's age.
                 So, if you have a naked lamp cage and some lace lying around. Make one! It took me about thirty minutes or so. More time wasted picking out lace and trim. That was the fun part. Let me know if you decide to make one. I would love to see it.
               Anyway, it's Monday. The start of a new week.
               Make it a good one :)

Great use for Superbowl time! It looks lovely. I have so many bits of crochet squirreled away that I should put them to good use like this. :-)

I love it! The best thing about these is that no two come out the same when you use what's on hand. Nice work! :)
