Issue 69

These Stained Glass Gems have been found during my frequent browsing and deep digging for helpful and or unusual stained glass web sites, as well as other information pertaining to stained glass. I do hope that there's a gem or two that will brighten your day and be helpful during your stained glass journey.

My apologies to all of you for not sending out an ezine since January. My husband and I took an extended vacation traveling around the USA. We visited 20 states and saw some of the most amazing places in this beautiful country of ours. I had left with plans to send out the ezines as usual, not figuring on poor internet access in most campgrounds.

Since our travels, we have decided to move to Arizona. We will be leaving a 3 bedroom, rather large, house to go to a 40 foot fifth wheeler with one bedroom and limited, although ample, space. Therefore, we will be selling almost everything we have in the house.

I will be selling a lot of stained glass supplies and books, but they must be picked up at my studio. I just won't have the time to pack and send packages. If you live in the Central New York area, you can contact me Here I will compile a list of what I have, with prices, in the next week or so.

"I want everything we do to be beautiful. I don't give a darn whether the client understands that it's worth anything, or that the client thinks it's worth anything, or whether it is worth anything. It's worth it to me. It's the way I want to live my life. I want to make beautiful things, even if nobody cares." ~ Saul Bass
