After 3 more false starts I can now show you
The brooch is 2.1/4inches high.
But I am not completely satisfied with it. I think the bottom looks a tad off. I have checked the instructions but even tho I followed them correctly its just not right. So a bit of fiddling for another one. And I wish I could find a better brooch finding to attach it to. Anyone know of where to obtain a different one. I have searched the internet and haven't had much luck.
Oh, and the cricket was very exciting we just won the 3rd of the finals so we Are The Champs. But Sri Lanke put up an excellent chase.
