Black Cat, Bending Glass & Jelly Fish

Halloween decorations are in all the craft stores so I needed a little something since it is one of my favorite holidays. This little kitty got adopted the first time he left the house by my good friend at our show last weekend.
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.
Pretty new earrings - I know the background (my old piano stool) is not so pretty but I really love the play of light. My little studio has two walls of windows, one side is open and the other has a short wall (just over a metre) with a door to the garage.

We Have A Winner!

Nancy is in Orlando so I called to let her know that her Apple-A-Day windchime (see previous post) placed third in the artglass group challenge - I can't wait to find out what is in her prize box, all I know is it is glass supplies. Each month there is a different theme - and July was "red". The August challenge is trees but I don't know if she will be entering because we are now "harvesting" trees for more Christmas tree pins, since we have sold every last one. When she gets home tonight she will find, tucked in her doorway, a first cutting waiting for her special tree trimming touch! The ones below were from last years crop.
