Latest stained glass

I feel like I don't have that much to blog about at the moment - partly because I haven't had as much time as usual for crafting and partly because everything I am working on seems to be quite a big project so I'm not getting anything finished!!

I'm hoping to rectify that a bit over the Easter weekend but in the meantime I thought I'd show you a couple of pictures of my latest stained glass piece.

It is a design from one of the books our teacher has and it quite simple but one I've always liked. I wanted to make something quick (ish!) whilst I thought about other larger designs and it was good for using up pieces of glass I already had. Apart from the yellow glass I didn't have to buy any new glass for this piece....although it has barely made a dent in the amount of glass I have!

I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out and I love the colour palette of rich, jewel like colours - I'm definitely going to remember this for future projects.

I also made a few little pieces to use up scraps at the end of the term.

These beach huts are done using the copper foiling method and I think I am going to hang them in the window as lightcatchers.

It is the Easter break from my stained glass class at the moment and I'm feeling a little bereft without it! The group I learn with is lovely and really inspirational and I can't wait to get back to work next term on a new piece. I think it is going to be a piece for my sitting room wall with lights behind it.....better get designing!

I hope you are all enjoying a lovely, crafty bank holiday weekend xx

Hi Dotty, Happy Easter. The glass is stunning. I love the beach huts, the colour coming through them is gorgeous. The new project sounds amazing, looking forward to seeing that when you get it done. xxx

You are so very clever.
Have a super week.

Lovely projects -- sometimes finishing the smaller pieces can give us the "oomph" we need to move on to the larger ones. These suncatchers are joyful.

Beautiful!! I love both pieces. Your copper work looks pretty perfect to me! I've been trying to find another glass course to go on, failing though!

These are so beautiful. I love the little cottages.
I know this is a late coment on your post, but I have just found your blog and was reading through your posts. (I came over from Hippywitch).
