This window is one of a kind, made from red glass that was left over from another project. The clear is glue glass and has a vine pattern and raised texture. To make the pattern, I traced a large W letter stencil and then broke the background up into cutable pieces. The frame I made from wood scraps from my workshop.

This "W" which is what our last name begins with, is for my son and his wife who I am going to see next week in Texas! Fingers crossed that it makes the trip successfully as a carry-on! Yikes!

What a wonderful gift - your son and daughter-in-law will love it I'm sure.

Thanks for sharing - and have a safe trip!
