  1. I absolutely love these. Did you create the patterns or did your students create them. There are a few that I’d love to make and need to know how to go about getting the pattern for them.

    • My students are such a talented bunch aren’t they Dawn 🙂
      They found patterns or designed the work themselves. I normally note when they’ve designed it themselves on the rollover on the images.

  2. Thanks for sharing ALL the beautiful stained-glass projects. With all this rain, I needed something to inspire me.

  3. Milly, Thanks for sharing. This gives me more ideas for more glass! So many projects and not enough time. Stained Glass is my sanctuary!

    • ‘sanctuary’, what a fantastic way to describe what stained glass is to us. Thanks Sherry, have a creative new year 🙂

  4. Thank you Milly for allowing me to be a part of you readers gallery. I am honored. I started working with stained glass just about 2 and 1/2 years ago after I realized it was the ONLY thing that would put my PTSD to bed. Before it came along, I really didnt know how many more nightmares and breakdowns it would take before I would “checkout” honestly. At almost the same time I found you and your students. I have been completely self taught with the exception of your emails. No official classes yet but I’m hopefully getting close to being able to do so. I want to tell you thanks and to your amazing students for all the art and inspiration but more so, in all honesty to ALL of you, thank you all for giving me a reason not to give up and wake up another day. All of you have saved my life, you may not understand. As I type this comment my eyes are blurred from tears, tears of joy and not knowing where I would be right now without it or spell check so that you all can read this comment lol. Very seriously if any of you know anyone that is suffering from PTSD introduce them the your world of glass. You may save another life. Thank you Milly you are amazing.

    • Oh that’s such a moving, honest and open letter Jeff. Thank you so much for trusting us all to write it. It’s comments like this that make my work even more worthwhile. I’m so glad you found stained glass – and us!
      Take care and have a lovely holiday.

  5. There is a lot of wonderful work here. There all lovely I love looking at everyone’s work. Thank you Milly for the gallery.

    • You know first hand how much talent is in my pool of students, being one yourself Kathy 🙂 It’s lovely to see it all gathered up in one place, very impressive!

      • Thank you so much Milly. I have truly learned a lot from all your classes that I have taken. After Christmas I can get on with my Lead class. Again thank you so much.

  6. Millie thanks us, but we thank her for sharing such creative wisdom! She is so good at answering questions and offering great help!

    • Aw, thanks Bill, that’s kind of you. I’m hiding behind and being boosted by my students’ talent in this particular instance though LOL!

  7. Thank you to all of your students for showing their work. I must also thank Suzanne Vickery for her yacht. I bought a box of off cuts from the Reading stain glass shop and made several yachts from pieces that needed no cutting. Mine were just hung on clear thread but Suzannes’s use of a large pebble was so inventive.
    I enjoy your emails even though I have not done any glass work for a few years.
    Thank you
    Lesley Brough

    • I love that pebble and yacht too Lesley! So glad you were inspired by it. It opens up all sorts of ideas for what to attach stained glass to… your quest for 2022 🙂

  8. Thank you, Millie for being there for us! As a reader, I truly enjoy – and appreciate – your tips and advice that you share, as well as the galleries. All so very helpful for those of us journeying on our own to learn such a wonderful skill. Your blogs are both inspiring and very useful. You should be proud of the following you have built of readers and students alike, and for the amazing talent you help to inspire and foster. I’m so glad I found you almost two years ago! Have a wonderful holiday and a very safe and happy new year!

    • Thanks so much Polly, that means an awful lot to me. I love my job! I get vicarious pleasure from my students work and all the ‘strokes’ I get along the way are a lot to do with their contributions.
      You too, have a lovely holiday and new year.

  9. I’m so impressed by the talent of the people who posted photos of their work. A lot of time and effort spent on creating beautiful pieces of art. Well done!
    I’m inspired. My New Year’s resolution is to develop my glass creativity in 2022.

    • Yay! I’ll get my students to read all these comments so they can see they’ve inspired you 🙂 Have creative fun in 2022.

    • That’s an interesting idea Fran, thanks. I don’t have any stained glass house tutorials in mind but I’m sure there are such things on the Internet if you have a snoop about. Good luck 🙂

  10. WOW!!! These pieces are truly amazing. There certainly are a lot of very talented and skilled stained glass artists in this group. So inspirational.
