Ok, I guess it's time to take a look at our students work and we're starting things off with Brenda who worked on this window while at home during the week and brought it in for hooks and a picture. She's worried that it might have a spot too much of purple but I disagree comletely. The two different shades compliment each other and contrast perfectly with the clear glue chip she used in the background.Here's what I think: I love everything about it.
Betty wasn't completely satisfied with her window this week either and again I don't understand why. The workmanship is spot on, the colors are perfectly matched (green and yellow-- you can't go wrong there) and the overall design is attractive and flows nicely. If you're anything like me you'll have to agree that there's nothing wrong with this at all.
Brenda not only made that beautiful Purple Cross Window-- she also completed her Oval Framed Fleur De Lis Panel this week. As far as I know she now has nothing in the works. I'm sure she has something in mind though so I can't wait to see what she ends up surprising me with when she comes back in. And would you believe it just dawned on me that her cross window and this one share a common oval!
And this is Becky S's second Rosebud Window. Yes, it's very much like the first one and that's what makes this such an incredible piece of craftsmanship. If you put her two windows together they look as though they were machine made because the cutting between them is perfect. Becky always strives for perfection and I'm proud to say that she always achieves it!!
When Becky S completed her second Rosebud Window she planned on making an initial window for her brother as her next project. Her pattern is ready but she has hasn't been able to get a color nailed down so she's moved ahead to this colorful cowboy boot which will include some wire work and some glass glob overlays when it's completed.
And last, but certainly not least is Carol's wonderful Winnie The Pooh Window. She has this ground and ready to be wrapped already! Yes, I'll admit that there's a huge section of sky missing but she's going to cut and grind that once Winnie's is tacked together to ensure a perfect fit between winnie's face and the sky. If it doesn't fit perfectly his face will look like he's got a botched case or plastic surgery and we certainly don't want that!
In winding things up for this week I want to let anyone out there know that we still have one opening available for our next weekend workshop which will happen after Easter on May 3rd and 4th. It's a two day affair and you leave with a completed 16 x 20 window. Check out the details here.
