i need a new project




this is the last stained glass window i did. It's still sitting behind a chair in the front room. Where no one can see it. I just can't get bill to make a frame for me, to hang it. I think i need to learn how to do it myself. The other option is to find old window frames and make them to fit the frame. I don't do small things. Everything is big. I'd rather do things that take 3 months rather than 3 hours. After seeing all the wonderful creations of my favorite bloggers, they are getting my creative juices flowing. Getting ready for my trip to Peru is taking all my time. When i get back , I'll be ready to get back in the swing.

I had to squeeze this picture in, of my tree peony, the plant is loaded with these blooms. They are huge too. As big as my hand, wide.

Your stained glass piece is absolutely gorgeous! I have only done stained glass and cement. I would love to learn how to do a stained glass panel sometime. I could stay in my little workshop for hours and I am fortunate to have a laser bandsaw (I splurged last October)and a grinder which you would think it would give me the push to put together a pattern, but I guess I just stick with what I know. Someday, I will get brave. The Peony Tree, is that really like a tree. Those flowers are so pretty. Bet they smell wonderful too! Thanks for visiting my blog. When do you leave for Peru? Have a great trip!

Girl, you just amaze me, what a beautiful work of art...can't wait to see it in a frame...COME ON BILL!!!! For as long as I've known you, you've never done any small projects and everything you have done is FAB>>>if only everyone could visit your wonderful artists' cottage, they would walk away in awe...can't wait to hear all about the trip too, I hear they may be closing it down or limiting the amount of people that go there, like everything else, we humans are such a destructive over-baring bunch...not us though, right!!! Ha!

See ya Sista...
