Q&A with sewingroom
Patrice G asked:
Divine Mercy my favorite. How in the world do you do this. You are amazing. I am thinking of trying to copy one of our stained glass windows for my sons ordination. I have four years left to try and attempt it. Your work is beautiful!
First of all...Congratulations on your son's upcoming Ordination. One thing about stain glass windows is that the lines are generally well defined.
Linda S Gilbert asked:
Do you have patterns? I would love to try this!
No. I don't have a pattern. I blew up an image to get the general outline.
