I got glass in my eye, (didn't even know it couldn't feel it, such a tiny piece)...and ended up with cellulitis.  

Sad

Had to get an IV and take it easy for a while.  Back now, everything is better but I took about 10 days off of fusing (first time in MANY years)...and came back with these designs!  

How do you like them?  These are made by layering mannnny layers of thin dichroic glass.  Each time I open the kiln, it's a new suprise, it is IMPOSSIBLE to predict what will happen with these ones.  I like 'em.  Which is your fave?

#1:



#2:



or

#3 ?




I personally like #3 the best.  It's soooo hard to photograph these dichroic pieces, so IN PERSON...#3 is my fave.

Happy FRIDAY everyone!

Third one is my favorite also....glad you are well.  It's tough when you can't do what you normally do.  I'm a breast cancer survivor and I still get excited over just being able to take out trash...LOL

I was wondering where you were... I had noticed you hadn't posted in a while.

I admire your work so much!  Cheesy

I check Craftster by clicking the "Recent With Pics" button and browsing, and I always like to see your work.  I am glad that your eye is better, and good for you for taking it easy for a while!  That is not always easy to do.  That being said, the contrasts between the lines that make the diamonds and the swirly colors in #1 is really working for me!

your back! Cheesy  I was worried.  I'm so used to haunting the glass boards just for your posts. Embarrassed I hope that your eye is all better!  I'm glad that you took it easy for a while, you would definitely need a break after something like that! Shocked 

And as always...I am in love!  Especially with #1. :)All the different patterns and colours really appeal to me.

WELCOME BACK!  Cheesy
