Lead Lighting


My friend Mary does the most magnificent lead lighting
I have always admired it
Last week I was lucky enough to have her give me a lesson and this is what I came home with
It is very special and I love it
It now has pride of place in my dining room window
Thanks Mary
Looking forward to my next creation though I don't think it will replace my patchwork
