Datura Vines Window Pair by Ellygator Datura Vines Window Pair by Ellygator
(2012), two panels of glass each 58" x 33", stained glass (gray, opal flame, amber, alabaster, white, dark green, light green, opal green, translucent), solder, copper foil, iron rods.

Yay! The pair is finally done. Now you can see the symmetry of the two panels properly!

Here's the single left pane that I finished first.

Thank you! I had so much fun with this one. Had been planning to fill that window for ages since it just looks over a rather ratty neighbor's wood fence...

Thank you! It was so much fun sinking my teeth into a nice big project like that again!

Business is going well - thanks for asking! - been working my ass off at Ericsson since last December, but made some decent money. Now I had a couple of weeks to sit out (they do that to all their contractors for legal reasons), back to the grindstone next Monday. My current contract runs till February, so it'll be busy, but zero travel (YAY!) and again some good money for lean times ahead...

So glad to hear you are doing well and don't have to travel like you used to. Living out of a suitcase isn't a good way to live.

Thank you! We always had curtains there to block the view into our neighbors' house. This is sooo much better and lets in more daylight, too!

Much better than curtains!! I wish this was in my kitchen to block out my neighbors!
I was wondering, it looks like the stained glass is set in front of the windows? Can you still open them? Or do you just not use them 'cause of the neighbors.

Yeah, in case of fire we'd have to lift them off in order to crawl outside. LOL! But there is a door going out to the patio and an uncovered window above the sink, so we can still let plenty of air in...

Man, I wish I was living in more of an art nouveau inspired home rather than a 1980s Centex subdivision plan A/030D, or whatever this house goes by (there are four more like this up and down the street with slight alterations to make it not 100% obvious that they are clones...) Who knows, one of these days...

I should think that your home's festooned interior more than makes of for any Stepford wife exterior it may have. The peacock feathers in your studio and the stained glass windows, alone, ought to negate at least half of those straight lines!

LOL! I guess you're right - as so often in life it's what's on the inside that counts!

Speaking of inside: I finally, finally, finally finished my two pieces for you and a little parcel is on its way with our current traveling library candidates inside and hopefully safely on their way back to you. The necklace may give you a bit of a start color-wise, but my original brave plan of the glass cab did not come to pass. I found that the cabs could not be set, the bezel wire was too narrow for the profile of the glass, so I subbed something a LOT more fiery...

Oh, Elly, you spoil me so! Your package deserves a longer letter than I have time or brains for right now (a con this coming weekend = working myself into a state of "derp"), but I wanted to let you know that everything arrived safely and magnificently. The reply you deserve will be sent in time (tomorrow, hopefully), but for now, just know that I loved everything. How grateful I am that your birthday is coming up so that I have an excuse to return the favor! *HUGS*

No worries! I hope you get yourself all set and ready for your next con! Deadlines are such a dreadful thing. For now I am just basking in the assurance that everything got to you all right and that you are happy with my little offerings. Don't stress about anything and have yourself a good week!

Thank you! I did have a little help from my trusty glass grinder. Most of the glass I used breaks really kindly, especially the gray, white, dark green and the transparent, but the flame-colored orange was a total bitch. I probably wasted two sheets just because the glass decided to break totally randomly...
