I HAVE STARTED WORK ON THE STAINED GLASS WINDOWS
I know - it's taken me about three years to get to this stage, but I could not put it off any longer....and so this morning found me standing in the cupboard with my safety glasses on top of my actual glasses, my glass wheel oiled up, my drawing in place..... enormous sweat rings of panic under my armpits and the camera, of course.
BTW - I didn't break that bit of glass. Truly.
The first few pieces were not happy events. The house is old. The glass panels will not be exactly right-angled at the bits one would expect to be right angled. Therefore, I have a bit of a run on some of my horizontals.
There was a threat of weepage when I realised just now noticeable this might be. And that it would be in the house FOR EVER.
But then common sense kicked in and I knew that I'd be able to fudge it. Somehow.
So I set to:
The first bit in place.
This took about an hour.
I'm not kidding.
Then the other bits slotted into place a little more quickly.
Of course, I don't think that I should RUSH these things, so now I've stopped for a while. I've got a music lesson in an hour.
I've been putting off starting this stained glass project for years. And it's actually quite fun.
In fact, 2013 is turning out to be funner than I had expected.
Mind you, it's only February.
What have you been putting off that you've decided to DO RIGHT NOW?
