Do you hear...

what I hear??? Oh no not Christmas, it's close to Easter so it should be Alleluia!

Remember this?:

The lamp I received as a gift eons ago, the lamp that got broken through all the moves I made over those eons, is finished!!! (Again, do you hear???)

 
I also fixed the very first piece I made all by my self after taking the beginner stained glass class. I took the class to learn how to put above lamp together and became a 'glassaholic'!
 

 
 There were 2 broken leaves. Thankfully my sister-in-law didn't like doing stained glass and gave me all her glass 30+ years ago that I kept and I was able to match the original glass.
Notice the bumpy petal...it's upside down!

 
Also you can not tell but there is no glass around the flowers and leaves because I did not know how to fit them in....now I can fit 4 pieces of glass on a dime at one time!
 
Must tell you what Lar just had to do the other day..
The local frozen yogurt shop started carrying Lar's favorite brand of locally made ice cream and they were giving a free scoop to those who signed up on line. So we got in the car:
 
  
ordered at the shop:
 
 
 And no, they are not both mine - one is Lar's. In fact I gave him half of mine...I'm not real big on ice cream:
It was just too cold to enjoy it.

Hopefully I will be able to get some sewing done this week.
I started packing up the studio and have the guys coming next Sat. to help me move stuff to storage so I'm not sure how much sewing I will get to. I found so much junk while packing up!

 
Is it just me or did you already know something I learned this week??
Peppers are male and female!

  While I was chopping them this week, I checked it out and it seems true!

Have a great week.
