Mary's Cross Window survived an assassination attempt when I accidentally dropped it the week before last. This week it's back together and finished as well. As you can see the dark colors have, for the most part, disappeared now that there's some light behind it. The cross itself is made from iridized glass which sets it apart from the clear glass that surrounds it. The contrasting colors were perfectly picked and the end result is inspirational indeed.
This is Jeannette's second 'Vette Window but this one has been done in a completely different color scheme. With black being the color of the car it was the obvious choice for a border color as well. Again, since this is the second time Jeannette has made this window, it went a LOT faster this time. As always her work is wonderful and she has another stunning feather in her stained glass cap.
This has to be one of the most interesting patterns I've seen yet. Annette's 70's inspired Poodle Window involves a lot of pieces but as I always say, the more you put into a window, the more you'll get out of it. Kudos go to Annette for not being afraid to tackle this multi pieced window as her second project.
Jeanne L's Circular Rose Window has been tacked together and her four corners have been attached to square it all out. With just two remaining borders to go Jeanne is very near completion on this project with all of the hard work behind her at this point.
Jeannette got the borders attached on her Magnolia Window and then proceeded to solder it. Her front side is almost finished and that means that the back side may very well be completed next week because this window is almost done.
Shawn got her Fleur De Lis all tacked together and worked on soldering her window. By the end of class she had both sides completed and only needs to touch things up at this point (and add some hooks to hang it by). This will be a finished project upon her return.
Lara is making great progress on her large Peacock Window. As you can see she has most of the tail feathers completed and ground into place. Once these tail feathers are tacked together Lara will work on the head and body of her bird. I'm sure that will happen when we next see this.
Rowena started working on some Mickey Mouse Suncatchers and got 4 of them cut out during class. then she started grinding them as well. I didn't manage to snap a photo so a picture of the pattern will have to do!
As I said, it was a very slow week due to the power being off for most of the week. Still, as you saw, we managed to get three projects completed. I think we'll have much better attendance in our next post as things slowly but surely return to normal.
