I got the pattern for this out of an old stain glass book I had laying around which I know longer have so I can not give any acknowledgement this time.Out of all the things I have made that are hanging around my house this one sticks out above all others and not because I have gotton compliments but on the contrary I have NEVER received a comment, period! Neither good nor bad! As soon as I come down stairs with my newest done project I run it by “hubby” and he makes his comments both good and bad (which I actually am glad for)but when I brought this one down a few months ago there was nothing! SILENCE and ya know? It’s still that way. Same with friends and visitors. Sooo I will go out on a limb on this one, but , I think it is not exactly cared for. Ha! Ha!. Which makes me like her all the more! I have always went for the “underdog” Sooo that is why I call her my lady. Plus her contents aren’t half bad either as she was made with green poplar, mahogany, black walnut, red maple and a few “mystery pieces!”

Actually, it’s pretty nice. I like the use of different woods.

You just did thank them. Now for the personal touch. Move your pointer to the name of the person you want to thank. The one next to there picture (like “odie” next to mine) and “CLICK”. Or where it says “home”. You will end up at their home page. Below their picture you will see “send a message”. Oh, here comes that nasty word again … CLICK. You will then end up at your mail box with their address at the top. Write away….

P.S. Forgot, just click on their picture.

Allison, beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. Some are color blind, some just don’t understand the “why” or “what” about the piece. But clearly, WE get it. I’ve seen your work, and I sincerely love it. The “Lady” is clearly an awesome project. Some are intimidated by our work, and don’t know what to say. They may look at it without really seeing it. You know? Please keep on making them. Thanks
