    That's AWESOME Charisma! I love the fact you didn't plan the layout of each dresden. (Maybe you did plan it out, but, it isn't deliberate!) I am making a dresden right now for a friend, and am being spontaneous with the layout of each one. You're simply the best!

    Mine looks a bit different than the book because let's face it....it needed to have a bit of “Charisma” flavor added to it.

    The pattern in the book is called “Dotty For Dresden”

    So to make the dresdens I used the cheater method they explain in the book....They have a template that you can copy and cut out to me your dresdens..I decided to go down to my local glass place..they made me a template from plexiglass for like 3$. It made the process of cutting them out so much easier. Then I spent time sorting my scraps..picking scraps that appeal to me..LOL...which you see here in all their glory. I also added yo-yo's...many many yo-yos..to give it dimension..I love dimension.

    Thanks so much for looking!
    It looks fabulous to me just goes to show what can be done with a little amagination.
