New shipment of stained glass received!

I got it yesterday. Spent last night in 6th Grade homework hell until almost 11:00 p.m. Today the granddaughters are out on Lake Travis and I am home with my stained glass shipment so I opened all three "large flat rate boxes" and sat on the back porch and sorted and gloated. Bill came to the back door once and said, Uh I know you are in stained glass heaven but could I interrupt you with one question? Hahahaha. This stained glass is mesmerizing. The small company that manufactured this stained glass went out of business. I wonder what happened to the employees? The blue glass is totally different than the green glass. The pale white and grey glass is dappled. The green is uniformedly ridged. The dark red is boldly ridged. Each color seems to take on the personality of its creator! Or so I imagine. Anyway, I love this stuff and if I won the lottery, I would immediately call the lucky owners of this stash and tell them I was on my way to buy them out!!

Ohhhh, I will be over to stare with you!!! I have a shop I go to buy glass at and when I get in there, I'm sure the store owner thinks I AM NUTS!!! I can stare and feel and stare some more just being my quiet self... I am fortunate to be able to buy 12x16 sheets.Then when I get home and unwrap those sheets I can't get a project going fast enough. I guess you could say I am a glass collector!

Lori, maybe I should call myself a glass collector instead of a mosaic artist! I just can't stop. Help, I need an intervention . . .
