Get ready for a BIG, big tip. As soon as you open a new roll of foil be sure to take out your marker and write the size of the foil on the center core. If it's black or silver backed foil note that on the core as well. If you use your foil outside of your own glass workshop (such as here in our shop) then also include your name. It's a huge time saver and your name ensures that even if you forget your foil in class that you'll end up getting it back. Your name should also go on all of your tools as well. One quick glance tells me that this roll of foil is 3/16 black backed foil and it belongs to the shop. That's surely easier than borrowing other rolls of foil and trying to match their size against your unmarked foil, isn't it?
Shelley put the whiskers, eyes and mouths on her Squared Cats Window and called it a day! Actually, she finished soldering it and cleaning it so that I could take a picture of her cats but they didn't have the eyes or mouths on them when she left because she was going to do that at home. What you see below is me photoshopping eyes and mouths onto her windows. I was going to post it without them but they looked so soulless that I had to do something!
Judy M got the elaborate border of her Cardinal Window ground and tacked together which means that she'll begin soldering this when we see her next. Everything has come together nicely for this and once the channel is attached the edges will become perfectly straight again. That's the beauty of using channel and NOT using a square to line things up. It allows any flaws to be hidden by the channel. (Not that this has any flaws!)
