So, I've finished the sewing portion of my project. Today I completed the cranium, put some faux pearls behind the gauze (pearls of wisdom) and completed the halo (thanks to Hannah for the gold material!) all in time for a quick photo before the sun went down. PHEW! That was hard work. Tomorrow I will figure out some crafty way to mount it. I still haven't come up with an appropriate title, so any suggestions would be helpful.
