New Cross for the Sacred Heart

thumbnail_photo[1]One of the things I was asked to do this summer while I was subbing in the Sacred Heart School office was to straighten and decorate the office and the teacher’s lounge. Mrs. Barbi, her mother, Grandmaw Peggy, and I went shopping to find things that would represent the school and church. We found lots of stuff, but we had to be frugal.  Couldn’t spend a lot. One of the things I wanted to do before I left was to wood burn a big wooden cross for the office. I finished up this weekend nd will go Monday to hang it.  I always draw off in pencil my designs first. I have to remember if it is white on black or black on white designs. Makes a big deal if you mess up. really hard to fix things burnt into wood. I finished it and I think it turned out pretty. What do you think??????
