Lara always makes windows that are thoroughly distinctive and this Profile Of A Woman is no exception. Does it take a couple hundred pieces to make someone do a head turn to look at your design? No. Sometimes it's all about restraint and how that simplicity is executed. The ever-so-slight accent 'color' that Lara used in this is the iridized white that runs throughout the ribbon. Perfection all around.
Lisa worked on four Monogram Panels (of which I got four good pictures) and she got each one ground, wrapped and tacked together perfectly. Next came her borders with corners that match the color of each respective letter. The borders and corners just need to be ground and wrapped and then these monograms will essentially be completed (save for the simple soldering job).
Susan R loved the Rosebud Panels that she saw here in a post a few weeks ago and is putting her own spin on the design by making only the rosebud itself and then soldering it as either a suncatcher or a Flower Pot Ornament. You've got to love the red water glass that she used for the flower-- it has just the right amount of deep red that a rosebud needs.
Kerry has begun work on a new project with a lot of pieces. This circular Magnolia design is always popular and has the distinction of always looking better than anyone expects it to when it's completed. This week Kerry got both the white and the darker white sections of the petals cut out. Next comes the leaves themselves where the bulk of the pieces in this window reside.
Robert has one of his windows all ready for solder (the bottom one) while the top window just needs some background glass cut into place to finish it off. The glass that he likes most looks like it will be back in stock on the 3rd of June so we won't see the top window completed for another week or two. The good news is that Robert has got three other windows just like the bottom one all set to be tacked together so there's a good chance that will be done quickly.
Look at this! This is MiMi's second to last Hexagon Window all ground and ready for foil. I can guarantee that there will be some kind of celebration when the last of these windows is completed, which will be very soon now!
