Finished soldering window 4 today and I feel like it deserves a bit of a backstory. A large amount of glass used in this panel came from a man cleaning out his garage in Redwood City. His wife was a stained glass artist and she passed away recently. When I went to pick it up he was really, really nice and offered to throw in a lot more than was advertised on craigslist. This piece is dedicated to that couple.
For those of you who don’t know, last year I started up a rug side project called UnderToe SF. It’s been slow moving but rewarding. I’ve been working on the rug pictured below for over a year. Hundreds of hours later i am still not finished! I apologize, rug makers of the world, for thinking I can jump into something like this so effortlessly.
One of my favorite things to tell people about this project is that all the yarn included in this latch hook rug is second-hand or recycled. I’ve been lucky enough to find 100% mothproofed wool, but because its second-hand and out of production, slight discoloration has occurred. In this sense it seems to have driven my color palette.
