Cindy completed her Texas Star/Blue Bonnets Window and everyone was excited about how great it looked with many compliments passed around. This was made as a gift and I certainly hope it's appreciated because I love this window.
Meanwhile, Cindy also completed this LSU window for her son, Chad. He knew exactly what he wanted and told her just how to place the Tiger Eye, the LSU and the Football. Then he came up with the alternating border colors to finish it all off. But it was Cindy's hard work that really brought this window to life.
The we have Bonnie's Suncatcher Crosses which turned out lovely (as expected). The glass jewels and bevels really dress up the crosses without going overboard making this a clean design that doesn't lose focus on the overall theme.
Last week the horse in Becky's window was missing but this week it's very obviously been cut out. There are just some green plants left to go (only 21 pieces) before Becky can begin soldering her second window with us. And let's face it, this already looks great.
Susan's Panel Lamp is all soldered and ready to be put together. That means that we'll certainly see a completed picture of this project when she comes back in next week. In fact, the sides were joined together after this picture was taken which means that only the top needs to be soldered on before this gets washed and then colored. All I can say is, 'Wait until you see it!'
This is the LSU window that Jeanne is working on and it's all ground and ready for foiling! I took this picture before the last 2 pieces were officially ground, but rest assured that they have been fitted into place and Jeanne has taken this home with her so she can tack it together when she comes back in and then add her final borders.
I have to officially state that I'm so thrilled with Shelley's work! This window hasn't even been ground and it's already fitting together well enough for us to know what everything is in it. with just the sky and a bird left to cut I'm suspecting that Shelley will be grinding this before we know it.
This is another window that I can't wait to see completed. I love the circle border in a rectangle border design and the Rose inside it looks great. Beauty And The Beast's version has nothing on this one! Brenda really accomplished a lot this week and this window is going to be another crowning achievement for her.
Martha has four of her Cross windows so nearly completed that it's almost a lie to say that they aren't finished. All they need are some hooks and these will be set. She has 5 others to go with 2 of them just needing minor touch ups and hooks. I'd say her work here is almost done!
Betty, Linda and Mary have all made excellent progress on their Nativity windows. In the end there are minute differences between the three windows but not really enough to merit going over the same points three different times so I'm putting them all together so you can click on the picture and check them all out on a larger view side to side so you can hunt for the differences yourself. :-)
Next up is Terry's Flower window which is all assembled and basically soldered. With the front completed and only the back left to go Terry will be looking for a new project to start next week!
