I've been using a Dremel for years, Ostera, and it's never occurred to me to use it for etching glass either! This opens up all sorts of new possibilities. But I've engraved enough metal with it to know it's not as easy as Reichan makes it sound! Your lines don't look they wiggle at all - you must have an amazingly steady hand.

Update on the knitting board:

I finished a sleeve.  Or I guess it could be a legwarmer.  But, really, I think it wants to be a sleeve.  I took a few pics to show you but it is dark in my house (my kid is asleep on the couch so I didn't want to turn on the light and wake her up) so bear with me.





As you can tell, it's an extremely long sleeve.  I couldn't photograph my shoulder (I just don't bend that way) but the top of the sleeve is pulled clear up past the top of my arm and a few inches onto my shoulder.

Now I just have to make another sleeve (or legwarmer) and decide what the heck they are, and if they are sleeves, draft a pattern for a sweater to attach them to.   Grin

Oh, and for the quilting board and the rainbow string quilt I have started, I decided to make some more rainbow blocks and not put any sashing at all.  I like how the colors flow together in the pic so I am sticking with that.  


 Cheesy  It feels good to have a plan and to have these boards pushing me along to get stuff done!

ha ha sleeve vs. leg warmer... for a sleeve, though, don't you have to shape the arm area? curvy like a sewing sleeve?

I think you made a good decision not to sash in white...I love white quilts, but usually with only a few bright colors, not the rainbow...too busy!  I like how it is turning out as well!

The top (or bottom, lol) of the sleeve (the end that I didn't show) turned out really loose and kinda stretchy.  I am fpretty sure I can shape it into a sleeve pretty easily.  I tried it out against my sleeve pattern last night and it was a really good fit.

And, if it doesn't look good, the truth will be known...it was a legwarmer all along.   Grin  lol!

leg warmers...very 80s fame...or now if you believe my teenage daughter

I love how that quilt is turning out and I am with alwaysinmyroom on the sashing. I love the colours together, rather than separated by white
