So, I'm still working on Christmas 2009 presents and just finished my mother-in-law's present this morning! She's redecorating her kitchen and has a collection of pitchers that she wants to prominently display and asked if I could make another one to add to her collection.

That looks fantastic!

How, may I ask, do you accomplish such smooth lines on such a curvy surface? That has by far been my most difficult obstacle! Any advice you can give would be most appreciated...

Again, lovely work!

Thank you Smiley

And as for the smooth lines, I pretty much have it all detailed on how I did it on my blog: http://tamrascraftingblog.blogspot.com/  It starts with the "Just chuggin' along" post and ends on my latest post... boy, I need to go update the thing >_< I hope it helps!
