Our New Window Takes Shape!

Thought you might be interested to see the progress on the new stained glass window that is being made to go over the table in the front of the chapel.  It's going to be awesome!  The glass, at this point, is mounted to a piece of clear glass in front of a window, and the pieces are all stuck on with little wads of clay, so consequently it looks like the window has the Pox!  No worries, those are temporary.  The other thing that doesn't show in this picture is all of the red jewels that will be in it, similar to the ones in our present windows.  The jewels are really going to dress it up! (It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that bling do-wa, do-wa, do-wa!)
I think there are about 30 of the jewels in this window, as well as one large jewel in the very center. The leading will make a huge difference too.  The window is 48 inches across, and wouldn't fit on the light board entirely because it's so big!  There will be an 8 inch trim all around it as well, which will give it a total size of 64".  The wood trim will match the rest of the wood in the chapel of course.
It's going to be beautiful!  And it's really going to make the front of the chapel a spectacular backdrop for our chapel ceremonies. 
Stay tuned for more updates as they become available! :)
