Lynn came in and surprised us with this wonderful Cross Window that she made at home. It started out as a 4 piece beveled cross kit and she expanded it from there. All in all I have to say that she did a great job in everything from the design right on down to her workmanship. I'm glad she brought it in so I could get a picture of it!
Patty made 2 more Multi-Purpose-Desk-Accessorys from start to finish while she was in class. It's a sure bet to say that the hardest part in making these are the glass beads that decorate the backs. Wrapping them and soldering them is VERY time consuming but Patty put on a brave face and they look great. (And did I mention that an iPhone sits it these perfectly?)
Brenda completed the first of her 2 Soccer Ball Windows. This one has a double border and I'll bet you can't guess who she made it for. :-) I considered photoshopping it to say On Land because that's where balls work best but in the end I was just too lazy and too concerned about how late this post already is to be playing around like that.
So here we have a window with a similar view. This is the second Soccer Ball that Brenda has made and if the mood strikes me I may change it to read Noel when we see it completed. Just in time for the Holiday Season!
Now it's very apparent to me that Brenda and Terry are sisters because they both come in with multiple projects. This window was previously made by Sonia and is no being made by Brenda. She's extending the sides from the pattern that you see here and we'll see how that looks in our next post (which should be any day now). Brenda seems to be very much into this!
Donna made excellent progress on her window while she was in. She not only has the bird, flowers branches and leaves ground-- she also has the background all cut out and ground to fit as well! Since it's clear glass it's a bit hard to see in the picture but this window is fast approaching completion as well as looking great!
Bonnie's taken flowers and birds to a whole new level with her window. The hard part is over now and all she needs to do is solder this to get it ready to take home. I love everything about this window from the choice of colors to the design and even the double border. It flows and fits together perfectly.
Jane's Bayou Scene may not look very together right now but it is in the grinding stage right now. There's a lot completed on this but there are just so many pieces in it that it's hard to leave the unground pieces in place and still have room to work. That said, when she gets more of this ground you will see the progress on this window all at once.
Myrt's been working hard on her Hot Air Balloons. She has some of it ground so it's fitting nicely on the pattern and you can barely tell what's glass and what's colored pencil. This window is bigger than 4 square feet so it's a nice sized project and that's a good thing when you're dealing with a lot of pieces like Myrt is on this project.
