Linda L's center panel of her three part Nativity Scene has officially been completed. She fell in love with the heavily textured brown that she used to form the boards of the stable and knew that would be THE perfect glass for the stable. She wisely chose to use a different brown for the six pieces that make the (also) wooden manger to prevent it from blending in with the stable. That's what I consider to be good and proper planning.
Our students have been closely watching this Rooster that I've been making come together so I thought I'd post it this week so everyone could see it lit up. It's certainly colorful and the best part is that it's already sold!
Judy's Crab Window was difficult to make (there are a lot of long, thin pieces) but it was certainly worth the effort. I still don't understand why she's so down on her soldering. It may not be absolutely perfect but it's far, far better than she thinks it is. She did take her time on this and that makes all the difference. You can't rush soldering, it's like a cake-- if you don't take your time and remove it from the oven too soon it's not going to be a good cake!
Next up we see that Linda L is already far along with the second panel of her Nativity Scene. There are only 12 pieces left for her to cut and grind before she can start foiling and ultimately solder this window. I suspect that this panel will easily be completed before Easter rolls around!
