I know what you’re thinking…does she mean that she is devious, or she likes to do crafts…I mean the second one. I’ve always liked doing crafts, I think I have dabbled in almost every popular one out there. I sewed my seventh grade graduation dress, I knitted and crocheted clothes for both of my children, I’ve made a quilt or two, I have even been known to make candles. the first night of the very first stained glass course I took I knew that I had found the one. The one that makes you dream about colors and textures, of hording piles of materials in your basement, hidden, so the spouse will not know how much you really have. I have not yet got to the point where I start hiding things in the trunk of the car, but I`m getting there.
I can’t help it…the beautiful glass shimmering in the window as the light passes through, changing and evolving as the sun changes its direction. And of course there is the texture…running your hand over the glass and feeling the undulating waves. I’m starting to think this is like fifty shades of grey glass…actually grey glass is not very nice. How about fifty shades of purple glass…no, purple is too expensive, they have to use gold to get the warm colors. It will have to be fifty shades of green glass…yeah, I love green. I understand that not everyone shares my love of glass, well sort of. The way I figure it, everyone feels that way about their chosen craft. I hope you have found yours.
God Bless, Julia
