I am finally, finally able to take up my stained glass hobby after about 3 or so years. All my stained glass stuff has been stashed in my daughter's garage ever since I moved to TN. I went to Richmond, VA last week. My beloved son has returned safely from Iraq and stopped at his sister's house for a few days before going on to GA to see his wife. When I heard his plane had landed in Germany for refueling I was finally able to exhale. He and my son-in-law hoisted my crates of glass into the back of my car and home I came! It goes without saying the first thing I did was to unwrap all my sheets of glass ... held them up to the sun and reveled in their beauty. I still need to go through other boxes of stuff with my tools, other supplies, etc. NOW I can do something useful with my time. I'm going to draw my first pattern in a long time. I've decided to do a frog/lily pad/dragonfly piece. And after going through all my glass ... *sigh* ... I ended up buying yet another piece of glass yesterday because I wanted a particular look in the sky portion of the piece. 'Tis good for Granny to be occupied again.
