I wish I could take credit for drawing out the inspiration rooster but I can't 'draw'. I can however google rooster images. I enlarged one I liked and worked it out. One of the things I love most about working with stained glass is how forgiving it is.
If a person is a perfectionist (and I am not) then you can get great attention to detail, great lines, etc... For me, all I have to do is have an idea and then it fills in all on its own- lol/
I am not sure I am happy with the 'wing' it may or may not get tweaked.
I found a couple of 'fancy' pieces in a yardsale purchase. I added two to this window for interest. I like how the diamonds 'twinkle'!
As of tonight, everything is cut out. I need to grind most of the background pieces. Then I can foil everything. Hoping that by next weekend I can start to solder this new keepsake together.
This is my first project done by myself. So far, so good. The next couple of project will be way smaller- lol!
