Stained Glass Gifts
One of the first things my husband and I (Wendy) bought after we were married was a beautiful stained glass lampshade for our dining room. This prompted me to attend a stained glass course. At that time we were living in, and renovating, a small Victorian house in the centre of Pietermaritzburg and I was able to make stained glass fanlights for above the bedroom doors and a few lampshades (these lampshades and an Oregon fireplace have travelled with us to our current home in Hilton). However, family and work commitments put this time consuming hobby on hold. Now that our children are grown up, I have taken up my hobby again and am enjoying making a variety of small stained glass ornaments. I have always loved the vibrant colours of the glass and find it relaxing to lose myself in bringing a design to life.
