Hello! I had a lovely weekend with my gorgeous nephew. On Friday I spent a lot of money getting my car fixed and then on Saturday... I bought a new one! The old car will now be Mr CA's so it's not a waste of money and the new one isn't actually new, it's just new to me. It's a blue Mini One with a checker board roof... I am SO excited about picking it up next week. I hope you all had a lovely weekend too.
Just a quick update on my stained glass window...
I have started leading. I haven't got much done yet as I had to cut all those semi circles to fit in the glass nuggets at the bottom and side. I was so relieved to be over that part, I completely forgot there are large nuggets throughout the design! It's going to take a while.
The nails are to hold the glass in place. Some pieces, like that leaf above, are a right pain in the arse as they wiggle around when you're trying to get the rest of the lead on!
The gaps in the lead will be neater as I'll be soldering them... so maybe the won't be neater, but they will be different!! I warned my Uncle today that I'll need it installing soon... he didn't seem very happy about it, he'd better not drop it!
P.S. I've just ordered some business cards at moo.com and they gave me a 10% discount code. If you use it, I will get money off future orders, but you get 10% off, so what's to lose?
