I am still trying to get caught up with blogging all the projects I’ve been working on in 2020. I have been slowly writing posts that relate to things that have happened this past Winter & Spring. I am trying to clear out my draft folder so I can tell you about my Summer projects! I think this is my last post related to “older” stuff.
The last time I worked on Stained Glass circles was in April 2017. This past April, 3 years later, I started cutting glass circles like a maniac. I cut 70 of them in a 5 day period! They are part of an ongoing project that I will post about when I’m actively working on it again, probably this Fall.
Here is my progress from April:
Over the winter I went to the nearby glass store and purchased some new colors. I was very interested in primary colors because I really didn’t have any. I chose the colors I wanted for my project and laid the glass out on my workbench:
This project is related to the frames I made back in 2016:
I spent hours cutting circles of various sizes and grinding the edges:
I started to pile them up by color so I’d know how many I had:
I slowly added more colors:
And more! I labeled each pile with a count of the number of circles in each color group:
I still have green circles to cut, but I ran out of steam! Stay tuned this Fall for more on this project.
