Fall and Winter Show Planning time is here

Although summer just began yesterday, planning for the fall and Holiday shows has already begun.
Here are only 2 items that I will be adding to this years show items.
The sweet orange dish
only measures 3" square at the base and is 6 1/4" at the top. It can be used as a candle dish, or to hold you're sea shell collection or pot pour ri.
The fun little kite sun catcher is 6"L x 3 3/4"W. Each of these items can be made in any host of colors to suit your interior.

Here is an update on the bevel panel that was started in March.
Well at long last I have been able to get back to doing glass. I soooo missed working on it. The darned MS was teaching me to adjust my plans again.
The inner panels are now all complete. Will be completing the assembly of them and the re-strip today, so that I can move onto the border pieces.
A word to glassers following this panel. I learned the hard way that bevels within the same box, or from box to box are not all the same size. This panel has 64 bevels. The frames were cut with the strip cutter using stops, had I not done it that way, I would have been blaming my cutting, (which really I thought was the problem, until I grabbed a few different bevels, only to find out that they fit right)
The plan is, is complete the panel by this evening. Fingers crossed.
