Mermaid Etching and More

A few years ago I bought some etching cream after I'd cut people's lasts names out of vinyl using my Cricut.  The names were etched onto the back of a baking dish, which is a great idea for a gift or so the recipient of a casserole will then know where to return the dish.
The other day I took out the supplies and began this project (knowing my husband would be gone for a number of hours).  I used a water based marker to draw this design onto the outside of the glass and then used a paint brush to apply the etching cream to the inside of the glass.  The first round didn't turn out well and when I googled troubleshooting, one person suggested cleaning the glass with alcohol first and shaking the etching cream extremely well which did the trick.

And here are a couple more projects that are nearing completion.
Quilting finished -- just needs some binding now.  I'm going to make a matching pillow too.

 Pink Pinwheels Quilt top finished and am preparing the backing now.
