To make an FDLin glass we HAVE to cut 7 pieces because the two arms and the center piece are literally bisected by the band. If you want your FDL to look good you have to ensure that the pieces above the band align perfectly with the pieces below it or you lose the effect and the Fleur De Lis just looks bad. Paying attention to details like this will always make your stained glass look more professional and less like a beginners work. Check out the Fleur De Lis below which doesn't align properly. As George Takei would say, "Oh my!"
Here we look at the two Mr Bingle box tops that Cheryl finished working on. She'll work on her box sides and bottoms when she comes back in which means that these may very well be completed upon her return. She's got the glass all picked out so I'm counting on these being finished next week.
And lastly we have the pattern that Kerry has begun creating. It's an Ames Window which is actually a pretty cool optical illusion. Click the link here to see what this will look like while it's spinning in circles.
And there you have it! All the news that's fit to read!
