    Smile My other colorful hobby

    I've been creating stained glass art for about 12 years, that's what the other side of my craft room is set up for. I thought you might like to see some photos of a few of the pieces of glass that I've made over the years. Hope you enjoy the pics!

    If I had a dollar for every time I got distracted I wish I had some ice cream.

    This is my other hobby, too. Your work is much more beautiful than I have created. I appreciate the time and effort you put into them.

    Beautiful work! If I wasn't a quilter, I would want to do stained glass. I do not need another obsession! I watch Vicki Paine and dream.

    Beautiful work indeed. I have small pieces throughout my house. I do love it hanging in my windows. I see you had a navy chief - US Navy piece. My husband is retired Navy - E7.

    They are very pretty.. I gave up stained glass, and took up quilting instead.. I was living in a studio apt, and stepped on a glass chip once too often.. I donated all my supplies, and grinder to someone that appreciated them..

    I love stained glass. I would never attempt it because of the glass slivers. Kudos to you.

    When you need to sand the edges of your glass, how do you keep the glass dust off of your fabric?

    I put my glass grinder inside a portable sandblasting box, so I can grind away and no glass dust gets out.

    I love your work. A few years ago I acquired some boxes of stained glass scrap and a grinder, but still haven't made any of the mosaics I'd dreamed of. Someday.....

    leaded glass and slumped/fused glass (kiln) have given up on the molten glass (paperweights, beads) the torch work also as it is rough on my eyes even with the protective lenses.........my children think i am safer quilting.

    my fabric stash is softer (and in the house) than my glass stash (garage) passion for color is in my brain

    Oh Wendy these are beautiful. I love stained glass. Makes you happy especially when the sun shines through.
    Wish I had more pieces. I would love to have one that makes a rainbow to show the promise God made after
    the flood. Love the way the colors flow.
    You are good.
    Thanks for sharing.
