Linda's Ornamental Cross is perfection indeed. She's really taken her time to ensure that all of the points and curves line up perfectly to prevent large, uneven amounts of lead from cluttering up the cross. Great work!

Kerry's closed the book on his Cabin in the Bayou Window and now that it has some light behind it you can truly appreciate all of the time and effort he's put into it. It may be a big window but there's a lot of detail packed into it which means that Kerry was dealing with some tiny pieces of glass. As always, all of that time and effort shines right on through though.
Shelley completed her Leaf in a Hoop and I must say that the hoop really transformed this from an average suncatcher to one that really grabs your attention. There may only be a few pieces in this pattern but Shelley's work was exemplary on it
Angie's Ornamental Cross is the latest of a new 'fad' going around in the shop. We will be seeing a lot of these as the weeks go by and Angie's choice of colors along with her craftsmanship only help to 'sell' this pattern even more than it normally would by itself.
Martha loved the double bevel border of a Fleur De Lis Window that she saw online and has added it to a different Fleur De Lis thus making up her own pattern. She wasn't sure of what glass to use for the background surrounding the circle that the FDL resides in but when she saw Corteza (or 'alligator glass' as we sometimes refer to it) she know what she wanted to use.
Betty's Irises and Humming Bird Window is all cut out and she's moved on over to the grinder to get all of her ducks in a row. This is a complex pattern but Betty has flown through the cutting process and when this is completed it's really going to be impressive. It already is!

Martha's Iris Humming Bird is all about purples and greens accented with a touch of yellow/orange that sets everything off perfectly. It's a popular pattern and Martha's rendition of it will certainly bring it back into the limelight once again. Oh, and she says that she'll be making another one in the near future...
Candy Corn patterns are simple yet highly effective due to their inherent colorful nature. Linda L jumbled five of them about and tacked them together inside of a clear background leaving her with our second Halloween themed piece this week which I'm certain will be completed when she comes back in.
