This is the pattern for the stained glass hanging I have been working on the past week. I haven't done any stained glass work for years really, and this has taken many hours and days and much patience too. I cut it out and grind the glass and fit it together and my husband does the soldering for me. I really enjoyed seeing it fit together and am glad I stuck with it to the end. It is so gratifying to end up with something so truly beautiful.
I switched out the green in the center for all clear 'glue-chip' glass. It partnered with the peach glue chip glass wonderfully. I only had a small amount of the aqua colored water glass that made the frame around the bevel. Perfect...I tell myself.
Here is the finished piece which doesn't begin in this photo to show its beauty. Remarkably beautiful. I am starting another with different colors in the center already. I love this piece and possible will make another for myself...in just the same colors or close to them. Sorry I've let my blog slide...while I de-cluttered the house and disappeared into the world of sorting through glass and working with it. Stained glass is so rewarding and something special to enjoy. And what gorgeous weather to be outside in...well at least until goldenrod blooms.
"Let the saints be joyful in glory; let them sing aloud upon their beds." What a uplifted spirit to sing aloud upon our bed tonight! "Let the praises of God be in their mouth...."this psalm sounds like the Israelites had a great victory in battle. We fight a spiritual battle every day...to turn towards God takes determination and obedience. I need to be reminded of this. Jesus loves me..this I know...for the Bible tells me so. scripture taken from Psalms 149:5&6b
