Did I ever show you this?
I made that *grin*. About a hundred years ago, and hours and hours of reading and teaching myself to do it - this was pretty much my best piece and needs to be cleaned a little.. but I like it. (the VERy best I gave away to a very close friend who ended up betraying me in a most heinous way - and I still want that piece of glass back!) Anyway.. I'm havin' a sick day today... my head feels ready to explode and I can't sit still and I can't tolerate another xanax - I needed a break ... so I'm just wanderin' around the house and stuff and I found it tucked behind a cabinet (I have no windows large enough to hang it). So then I wandered out to the shed that years ago we had turned into a stained glass workshop, and I was suddenly realizing how much beautiful glass I have out there... and thousands of patterns... and now I'm sort of inspired to get back into it.
But the shed is a mess. Why oh why is it so hard to find a handy, strong, man or two that would offer to help a girl out for an afternoon. ::sigh:: I don't know either, but for right now ... the wood floor out there is rotted, bees nests.. just dirty, yucky and I don't like to be in there... but then I see the glass colors shine in the sun and I'm still inspired. We shall see :)
