Last September I finished my first layered-frame glass circles project. Today I cut the metal frame inserts and soldered a whole bunch of circles into them. I’m not quite finished, but almost!
Or “How I broke our garbage disposal the same exact way I broke it 5 months ago” *SIGH*. And once again it was hubby who came to the rescue!
My drop-down menus, which I added last year, were starting to REALLY annoy me and get in the way. So I have re-done my page and gotten rid of them. Instead, when you click on a menu item like RIVER, you get a new page with square photos, one for each category. Hover your mouse over each square to see the category names, then click!
I completed 19 DIY projects in 2016 🙂
As you read in Part 1, I ran into some issues with my first attempt at making a stained glass sailboat, including the bottom looking like a canoe, trying to work with solid copper wire, the entire boat falling apart because the solid copper wire was too heavy, and finally the entire thing falling apart again because I soldered the hell out of the seams to the point of insanely overheating them. Oops.
Back in the 1990’s, dad had a catboat. When I started working with stained glass Dad asked if I’d someday think about making him a stained glass sailboat. I decided to surprise him for Christmas this year and make him a stained glass catboat.
I have 11 DIY projects planned for 2017 🙂
