Glass, Glass, Glass

OOPS - just wrote out a blog and then proceeded to send it out into space!

I spent last Friday morning hanging out at a stained glass class, talking and watching the other 7 students. It was great, just about everyone talked about what they were doing in the whole process of making a stained glass piece. All of the students became teachers that day. I get to start cutting glass this coming Friday - I'm so excited. One lady is in the process of making these really cool pendants - and was somewhat discouraged with the whole thing, but after we talked, she seemed to be feeling better about it all - the really funny thing is we ran into each other as I was leaving Hobby Lobby and she was going in!
Patience - I'm having a hard time being patient - I want to do these - now - I've started some pieces in advance that will eventually get framed as a small stained glass piece.
Meanwhile - working on small glass discs that can be either magnets or pendants, along with the square and rectangle glass tiles and more Easter ornaments.

My "bug", along with my upstairs neighbors have gone! YEAH!!!! With a couple of decent days sleep, I'm definitely feeling better and hopefully will be getting more done - still working on rearranging and getting things cleaned up around here - lots of things to sell, give away, donate etc.
Have a wonderful day!

Hi Marie -
Oh gosh - I hope you are feeling better soon!
Stained glass is sort of funny - because the glass is usually already stained when you buy it! So far, I haven't cut any glass in class yet - I hope I don't get all cut up!!! Shouldn't if I do it right!
I want to combine my glass painting, and the techniques used for "stained glass" to make some pendants and other things.
Feel better soon! Try adding some zinc - I think it helps!
Hugs back
