Here is a picture of the show at St. James a couple of weeks ago. The spot was short so I tried a new arrangement with the tables. It worked and people came into the space. Snow!!! This is not a very good picture and I have not yet put on bails and/or pinbacks.

Monday I went to my favorite glass shop and came home with a carload of new glass.
I'll be in doing a show here in Midlothian the first Saturday in November. I'll be at Clover Hill High School for their Annual Craft Show. This will be my first show alone - Nancy is having foot surgery the day before and will be out of commission for a while.

Can you bend glass - absolutely!! Nancy made this windchime - the chimes are blue and I haven't got a picture of it with the chimes attached yet. This is from the girl who refused to cut glass when we started out so she would not get cut - now look at the intricate things she does.

She entered this in the June project challenge in two of the glass group that we are members of - it looks like a winner to me.
Coming soon - a windchime with jellyfish. I have only seen a picture of it in progress and can't wait until it is finished and she sends photos for me to post.

I've have a new plate that just came out of its final firing. I played with my program so that my design would not all melt into the glass but remain 3-dimensional. The roses are from my garden.

Horizontal stripes that work for me - as we all know not everyone can wear horizontal stripes but these work for me. I love to play with blue, green and purple dicrohic glass. The first piece is made from e differnt blues and a green.
These earrings are blue with a touch of purple - they were hard to get a good picture of.

One of our favorite memories comes from the 60’s. Summer evenings were filled with the tinkling sounds of oriental glass wind chimes. Christina and I put a modern twist on the old idea, making chimes that reflect our personal styles. The strength of the glass is amazing and the sounds are only surpassed by their radiance when the light shines through. Sis and I made windchimes for ourselves - mine is the vibrant reds and I call it "scattered glass", Christina's reflects some her favorite colors blue and green.

I love stripes (with polka dots a close second) so after playing in my fabric chest I was inspired to make these.

My sister, who loves flowers, does not garden. She planted these pretties in her kiln - aren't they pretty?
