GeTTing CLoSe to anoTHer FiNiSh

I had such a great time in my cubbyhole.... hubby was off playing golf and the housework was done. I have owned a pattern of a stained glass window (for Xmas) for a  l o n g  time. I finally decided to work on it in 2010 but when I opened the pattern there weren't any instructions... but I thought I could manage it, so off I went and traced the design and cut out the pieces of fabric. Then I got distracted with other projects (how unusual...lol )  and it was put away in a box.
Then I signed up to Myra's PhD challenge and entered it on my LiSt. I have been putting it off...kept thinking... I'm not sure...can I do it ? do I want to do it?
ThAnKfuLLy... I did tackle it and it went together like a dream. Makes me wonder why it took me so long!
Anyway, I still have to sandwich it and add the leading... but I'm really HaPPy I took the time to work on it.I'll be able to cross it off My PhD LiSt soon but in the meantime this is how I went about it.

Previously all cut out.
Overlaid the traced design.
Ironed on the pieces.

Added the "glass" border.

Completed top.

How cute - funny how we 'hedge' projects and then thump our heads after it is done. Very nice.
