I found these beautiful blue rocks with purple swirls about a year ago and din't know what to do with them Then I found some purple stained glass with blue swirls and a game plan finally came together! I made this cross as a wedding gift to my hairdresser. She loved and evidently so did her relatives as I've been asked to make 3 more! Only they will have to be different as I used all my blue rocks

Hi oldcrafty - No, mine are not concrete. I use MDF bases. I really need to get some pics on the forum and share what I've been up to. I'll make it a goal this week!

You do such neat work, CRAFTY. Very pretty - your edges are so smooth. I love making crosses too, but usually put them on another substrate. Do you make the substrate? How's your grave project coming?

RE: Another cross

Thanks Slow. Yes I have a mold and pour my own crosses. After curing 10 days or so I can work on them. I bought all my pavers for the cemetery project and attached the plow and then came to a halt again. It's been too hot to work on it. I'm glad it will soon be getting cooler cause I'm anxious to jump in and get started.

RE: Another cross

That is one project I'm anxious to see, girlie. Sounds like a huge undertaking. From what I can imagine, it might give me pause to tackle such a large project. I'm REALLY looking forward to watching your progress.
