Stained Glass Window Follow Up

Last night I took the stained glass window over to Megan and Ken. They absolutely loved it-I was so happy. You just never know when you create something for someone if they are going to like it or not. They saw the window cut out and partially foiled but they couldn't see all the color in the glass since I had it on my work surface board. Ken had gotten some clear caulk to install the window. While Megan was making dinner Ken and I installed the window and it is just perfect for blocking the sun from their TV. Here are 2 pictures of the preinstallation and the completed job!

I situated the window and Ken inserted some nail brads to hold the window in place while he caulked the window into place. These brads will be taken out once the caulk has dried for 24 hrs.

Here is the finished product!

It took me a long time to actually get the piece going and to complete it but it turned out great! I'm glad they are happy with it!

Absolutely stunning! You should be so very proud of this beautiful, beautiful window. Very nice work, Sherri!

Joyce-thanks so much for your kind words. Now they want a stained glass insert for the window light on the side of their front door! I told them to give me a few months off and then I'll start one maybe in the Fall and have it done before Christmas!

Beautiful! I should have paid more attention when my girlfriend tried to teach me to cut and lead stained glass:)

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
