Slow progress

Nothing new done to the boat yet...still too busy...running out of time...isn't that what all sailors say who are getting ready to go?!

Here's some photos of the stained glass lamp that I made last year for our boat, Sea Turtle. After Jordan completes the hanging hardware for it, it will be hung on an Aladdin lamp and mounted above the settee table.

First, cutting out and grinding 52 pieces of glass...

then wrapping all of the pieces with copper foil...

and finally, after soldering all the pieces together, the finished product!

Hours and hours of work, but worth it in the end. Can't wait to see it hanging!
