I jest ok! I didn’t really dance naked in the garden last night to try and persuade the sun to come out for a bit today. Honest!! I wouldn’t want to frighten the neighbours for a start and no doubt if I started doing things like that ‘him indoors’ would have me committed 😦
But as luck would have it the sun was shining when I came out of work, the only thing is work is about 20 miles from home and there were a lots of clouds in the sky. So one ‘brisk’ ride up the motorway on my motorbike later I’m at home and the sun is still shining! WOOHOO!! So it’s a case of get in, take off my bike gear, kiss his nibs hello, a 5 second chat with the kids and I’m out in the garden with my suncatchers and camera in hand, giving the dog a quick hello pat on the head on the way past 🙂
The results speak for themselves 🙂
First up is the piece I tried unsuccessfully to photograph last night, the Wedding Anniversary piece. It looks soooo much better today with the sun shining. The colours of burgundy and cream were chosen as they were the colours used at the couples wedding 11 years ago.
Next up is my Stars & Swirls Suncatcher in pink. I realised last night that I’ve made this piece in all colours of glass but for some reason I’ve never made a pink one! So, as I had some pink stars in my star ‘stash’, this omission was soon rectified and I think it looks lovely. Hopefully someone else will love it too and want to buy it to display it in a window in their home. Not only is this perfect as a treat for yourself but it would make a perfect gift for someone who was born in October as the pink glass is very similar to the birthstone Rose Zircon.
Lastly is another of my summer ZINGY pieces. I decided to create the same Stars & Swirls suncatcher with the new lime green glass I got a few weeks ago. I think this looks stunning and I really love this shade of glass. Hopefully someone reading this will love it and if you fancy buying it you can click on the photo to be taken to my website for more information.
Lets hope the sun shows up a bit more now that July is here, after all it is supposed to be summer time at the moment and the dreary winter will be on us before we can blink……..
Mind you, that means Christmas is on the way and I’m already going into ‘Christmas Mode’ with my stained glass! I know the ‘C’ word is a swear word to some at the moment, what with it being July, but there’s nothing wrong with getting into the Christmas mood this early in the year. Or maybe there is as the echos of ‘Bah Humbug’ ring in my ears from my partner 😉
