I also made this cross pattern. I hope to make a cross for each month of the year. I did learn that I need to use a smaller bit on my glass grinder and I also learned that soldering glass stones can be difficult! However, I think this turned out ok. I like the complimentary cool colors.
In my second attempt, I decided to try and put the colored stones inside the cross. Again, I hope to purchase a smaller grinder bit so that the cross doesn't look so wonky. However, who doesn't have a bit of bent cross that they carry? After all, I am not perfect are you? It is hard to believe that I have been doing stained glass for two years now. I really do enjoy this art form.
Alas, I did have cookie fail! I am afraid that I will not be winning the Pillsbury Cook-off again this year. No worries, I have many wonderful bloggers that are helping me learn to become a better cook.
My pen pals have been written to and nothing is better than a personal letter from a friend. Do you have a pen pal or wish to have one?
Oh and I had a photograph by Shelia Bolt Rudesill framed. I traded her with one of my watercolor that I painted.

I did accomplishment many things this month and am proud of myself for having diligence. I have used my voice, tried new things, and made some great connections. Being a survivor of long term childhood and teenage trauma can be difficult. Like the pieces of broken glass, each part is becoming whole with a solder of love, healing, and awareness. I know that I am valuable AND I am overcoming painful memories while embracing much love and joy.
I like this bible verse, "Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble." 2 Peter 1:10
What have you embraced this month?
