We're jumping right on in this week starting with Linda L's first of two (possibly three) Angel Panels. This one features a blue robe while her second angel (which you'll see later) has a pink robe. She also has an order for one of these but the person wants different wings so Linda was just going to cut new wings and use what she already had cut out. However, now he wants the dress to be changed as well. We'll see if Linda decides to cut an entirely new window or if she just swaps out the almost complete angel in the weeks to follow.
Jan's happy to tell you that her Eagle/Flag Window is finished. I have to say that she did wonderful work on this and that it didn't take her nearly as long as she thinks it did. Everything fits together wonderfully and her soldering on this is some of her finest work to date.
Cindy's got another Louisiana Football Tiger Eye in the works and she's flying through this project as fast as she can so that she can start working on a Corvette Window when she comes back in. Her talents are very much in demand and Cindy doesn't disappoint.
Do you know who else was VERY productive this week? Jan! First off she finished her Eagle/Flag Window (and was very happy about that) and then she moved on to this Santa Face and Halloween Witch. Not bad at all!
Lara has the background for her Sunburst Window all cut and tacked and she's decided to finish this off using a beveled border. Hmmm, I actually don't know if she plans on using one or two borders so perhaps the bevels won't actually 'finish' this off. We'll see when she returns next week.
With all of her glass ground for her Flower Pot Window, Bee has begun to wrap her glass. If you look closely you'll see that she is actually missing two pieces. These things happen, especially when working on a window with this many pieces. Sometimes a paper pattern gets put in the wrong pile and either gets cut out of the wrong color or not cut out at all. If you've discovered this after a lot of pieces have been ground (as in this case) it's best to just leave a hole in the window and then fill it in AFTER the window is tacked together by placing the glass you want to use under the window and tracing the outline of the opening onto the glass. It's just much, much easier that way. And that is what Bee will be doing with her two missing pieces.
