When I retired one of the things I wanted to try was stain glass, but I was so busy with painting classes, photography, quilting and embroidery - plus all the lunch and physical activities. Plus I really did not feel like driving back and forth to the city. Then a local stain glass person, Carol Hiebert at Catch Yer Eye offered to instruct me - she had me come for four - 3 hour classes. I really enjoyed the experience - probably as it is so close to quilting. This is also very unfortunate as I discovered that this new 'hobby' is also very expensive!! So this one hanging is worth a lot unless I get back there in 2013 and create more pieces - by the time you buy the cutters, pliers, solutions, etc., etc.
Right now it proudly hangs in my window and looks wonderful when the sun shines through it!
