This book is by J. A. Jance who is a great author. Her mysteries are really well written and have lots of twists and turns in the plot.  I love them.  I have read most of what she has written.  I discovered her while on a cruise to Alaska in 1996.  She was a speaker at one of the events on board the ship.  I love to read mysteries and had not heard of her so I went to listen and really enjoyed listening to her.  Once I got home I looked up her books and have been reading then since.  This particular book is in the Joanna Brady series which is set in Arizona.   Great story!  I love her characters and how they have developed over the course of the whole series.  I would recommend these books and suggest that you start with the first one which is called Desert Heat.

Stained Glass Panel

Two years ago I took a refresher Stained Glass glass that taught both how to copper foil and how to use lead. We made several stained glass pieces.  We made a couple of small pieces and then one larger panel using the leading.  It was fun. We got to select a pattern and then pick glass to make it with.  The class was two sessions and we were able to complete everything in those two days.  The only thing we didn’t do was to frame the panel.  Just the other day I pulled out my panel and wanted to get it framed and finished.  The husband of one of my co-workers made a frame for me and yesterday i got it hung up in the kitchen. Here is a picture of it hanging in the kitchen window. :)

This is a great book by Maeve Binchy. She is a really good author and I have read many of her books. They are all down to earth good books. Her characters are real and could be people you know. She does a great job of weaving a story in which I would like to be in.  :)
