While searching through our photos we came across this Butterfly # 3, which measures approximately 7 x 6 inches. It was made many years ago before we had a digital camera. Enjoy.

Sometime ago we obtained some old Spectrum Iridescent glass that was in an old lamp that could not be fixed. In return we made this butterfly which measures approximately 7 inches wide by 9 inches high. The initial design was titled Butterfly Blues however the lady from Red Deer who gave us the green iridescent glass wished for a butterfly using some of that glass and this is what we made for her. In addition to the green glass being iridescent so are those yellowish oval pieces.
The design was obtained from Suzanne Cooper and Donna Schulze who we met in 1999 in Apache Junction Arizona. Donna was a wonderful person who along with her daughter ran a stained glass studio, where we initially purchased glass and supplies, unfortunately a few years later we learned of the passing of Donna Schulze.

With winter just around the corner this group of Garden Butterflies, Lady Bugs and Dragonflies have been gathered from their many garden places and are about to be packaged up and put away till next spring. It is a pretty sight to see them all together in a large pot before heading into winter’s storage.
