Shawn's Ethnic Hands Window is monster big! It's far bigger than you would imagine measuring in at a whopping 22 inches wide by 32 inches tall. Her glass choices are perfect (you've got to love that fractures and streamers inner border) and the flowers are divine. Another job well done by Shawn.
June's Nursing Window has been officially completed and she was very happy about how it turned out. The colors work wonderfully allowing the needle, the nurses cap, and the stethoscope to be easily seen in front of that vibrant blue background. I've got to say that June's biggest strengths are her grinding and her soldering which she's pretty much got down pat.
Let's Trio of Cats Window is purfection! She worried a bit that the purple border was too dark but it only appeared to look dark because it was on the table without any light behind it. Once this was hanging up the purple glass that she chose wasn't dark at all. Windows always look their best when there's a little light behind them.
Susan D assembled a beautiful Honeycomb Suncatcher along with a curved Bee to go with it. It's hard to see the curve of the bee so I'm providing a side view of it as well.
Sheri's last Teardrop Seascape was made in ambers while her newest Seascape has been made in colder silvers and blues (and greens). They say the sea is cold and Sheri's newest silver beauty reflects that perfectly.
Kerry is WELL under way with his version of the classic Umbrella Lady. The purples and pink work wonderfully together and now that Kerry has this woman all cut out and ground he will tack her together and then get the background cut. I'm expected to see rain hitting that umbrella next week!
MiMi was back in class and finished grinding and washing the remaining pieces of the repair window that she's rebuilding. It's been a learning process all around for MiMi as she discovers just how badly crafted this window was. First, nothing was ground, second, nothing fits together very well even after we reduced the overall size of the window by a quarter of an inch! It's hard to believe that the gaps she is trying to work around were even bigger before we reduced the pattern size. But she's wrapping pieces now and soon she'll be ready to solder this back together and actually have it looking even better than it was before the glass was broken.
