Secret Garden

Wow, didn't Patty's Dragonfly Window turn out to be absolutely stunning?  Not being sure on which way she wants to hang this we put holes for hooks on all four corners which means that this window can be hung 4 different ways.  This pattern is so nice that there's already talk of someone else making it! 

Susan's American Flag Lawn Ornament is another winner.  She'll be working on a few of these and then branching out into pumpkins soon enough.  Susan's moving along nicely on her own now and her confidence is at an all time high thanks to completed projects like this.   

Patty and Sonia's Sister was in for a visit and rather than skipping a class they both decided to bring Amy with them to stained glass class and let her make a butterfly.  It was a great idea because Amy's butterfly turned out perfect.  It's a shame she won't be able to stay for 4 or 5 more weeks to make a window because I believe Amy has what it takes to make stained glass.  I guess it's safe to say that it runs in the family.  :-)


Speaking of Sonia, the front of her Pokeno Girls window is now complete!   With only the back side of this window left to solder (or would you actually call it the front side???)  I will safely assume that  this will be a finished project next week as well as a featured picture in the Blog Update Notice.  I'm hoping for a sunny day when it's washed and cleaned up so we can see this colorful window with some good light behind it.

Meanwhile Roxie is looking to populate her Secret Garden with Fairies, or Butterfly Ladies, or Wood Nymphs.  Call them whatever you want but Roxie certainly makes the nicest one's I've ever seen.  She realizes that attention to detail is a must on these and she always achieves perfection.


It looks like both Ann and Sonia are at the same point in their respective windows-- both of them have the front of their windows soldered and will begin soldering the back sides when they return.  Hopefully I'll be able to help Ann solder the back of this when she comes back in.  With 2 of us soldering there's a chance this will be completed!

That's about it for this post.  We're about 2 updates away from being completely up to date again and in our next post you'll get to see the butterflies that Lynn and Aubrey's  made during their first day in class. That will be in our next update sometime around Wednesday.
