I started doing stained glass work in the early 80s, then packed it all up when I returned to the work world in 1989 when Lindsey was 9, Courtney 6. The glass and equipment stayed packed away for 32 years. Now settled in Portugal, we gathered our "can't part with items" and shipped them to our house in Carvoeiro. What a pleasant surprise to see all my glass and various stained glass equipment. After some convincing from Con, I said, "okay" to buying some new equipment and getting back at it. I'm totally addicted to it again!
