Mom’s Stained Glass #ThursdayDoors

When Mom first retired, she said she wanted to learn how to make stained glass. So she found a guy and bought some stuff. She’s made lots of cool stuff, but I’m sharing her door panels today as part of Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors hop.

Here’s the Fall one (Autumn, to you non-USAers) in place in the center of the door.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: How does your main character mark the change of the seasons?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Beautiful stained glass panels. I took a class a long time ago and taking another is on my bucket list. 🙂 Tell your Mom she did good!

      Thanks, Judy, will do! Good luck with that class. And watch out for stained glass warehouses — they’re addictive!

    Good for your mom! My mom took up needlepoint some years ago and was doing gigantic Indian rug designs inspired by rugs seen in “Arizona Highways.” Yikes! Most people start with little starter kits. 🙂
