I promised you last week that your razor knife had one more secret that I'd share with you and here it is. Hold the back end of your cutter (the blue arrow is pointing exactly where you should hold on) and carefully pull the back end of the cutter off in the direction of the green arrow. (Make sure your blade is retracted so you don't accidentally get cut on the exposed blade.)
So then, Kerry finished up the work on his Mardi Gras Fleur De Lis and ended his night with a completed window alas, with a break in it. :-( There's nothing worse than getting ready to wash your window and discovered a crack. Luckily even though it was a large piece (the top part of the FDL) it was a simple fix. In the end no one will ever suspect that there was a problem because it was repaired seamlessly.
Betty finishes off the last of our completed projects this week and her circular Fleur De Lis is stunning. Everything lines up just right in this and next week we'll provide you with a tip so that any FDL's that you make can easily look as good as Betty's is.
Sheri's Mardi Gras Masks aren't the kind to just cover the eyes--they're complete faces and she's forging along absolutely wonderfully with these. It's hard to believe that these aren't ground yet because everything already fits together so nicely. Once again this is further proof that if you take your time you save time. This is going to be a wonderful window. Of that I'm completely sure.
Even while experiencing numbness in her arm and hands, Melissa managed to get this decorative Fleur De Lis suncatcher cut out and ground. Once this is tacked together she'll set it into a circular piece of glass to make it absolutely rock solid which is something that this Fleur De Lis would NOT be if she were to leave it like this without any background glass.
