I've been working on one particular glass project for, oh, I don't know, about 1 1/2 YEARS; like, it was started while I was still pairing maternity pants with tight tank tops and cardigan sweaters that were meant for 14-year-old girls and like before I had so many stitches in my hoo-ha that my doctor wouldn't even tell me the exact number and like before I had to wear a leg bag with a cathether for 3 weeks post-birth because my bladder stopped working as it was mad at me for putting it through such selfish grief with the whole childbirth thing (it has since forgiven me, by the way). This extended schedule is by no fault of my own, per se; let's just say that there were many changes and adjustments to both the design and also the size of the window and all of this had to be agreed upon by many people (with many opinions, actually) on a church board of elders.
The overall process was most certainly a lesson in patience and I'll just say that I'm very pleased that it is finally completed (thank you, Cathy!). It truly is lovely and I'm certain that it is exactly what they had in mind when I was approached in June of 2006 about constructing a large window of The Ascension for their church; and my personal treat for finishing this project will be the purchase of a laptop because I'm very much looking forward to saying that Jesus bought me a computer.
