A Slightly Moist, Oily Powder

Grace has finished her LSU box. Rather than go with a stained glass panel on one side of a printed card she decided to go the extra mile and actually cut the LSU out of glass. Both sections lined up perfectly and the purple border brought it all out. She attached it to her box bottom and the rest is history.

Jane made 7 (yes, SEVEN) butterflies this week. It seems that she's selling them faster than she can make them. She knocked these out so fast that I didn't manage to get a picture of them so I'm reposting on that she's done in the past so newcomers can see just what it is she's making so many of.
Yvette cut out the pattern for her bottom teardrop feathers in her peacock window. She immediately went to work cutting the centers out of a royal blue3 glass which will contrast perfectly with the small slivers of yellow that hang from the bottom of each teardrop. She has the blue cut out and the yellow ready to go next week.

Roxie has all of the glass cut, ground wrapped and even tacked together for her bird window. Now that she has the border completed she's ready to begin soldering her window. I don't think there's any chance that we can see it finished next week but I'm sure we'll see this window washed and ready to hang in 2 weeks.

Julie's spending her time at the grinder and she's past the halfway point on her second of 2 Iris windows. She's really starting to understand the intricacies of the grinder. Most people think you just push the glass against it and it's ground, but there's much more to it than that. Most times there are a number of places that you can grind a piece to get it to fit. The trick is figuring out which way makes a sturdier window.
And here we are with Janice nearing the end of her last 2 windows. The center piece is all ground and ready to be wrapped. Once that's done she'll fit the background glass behind it and be ready for a border. It fun to see how quickly she gets through the cutting and grinding of these as compared to the first few she made!

And there you have it. Yet another Blog update gets thrown out onto the internet.
