    Wish I Had the Space For a Workshop

    Ever since I took a class where I did a small stained glass piece, I have a love for it.  Unfortunately the only time I get to play around with it, is when one of my friends invites me over to play in her workshop.  I am so jealous! I have only done small things, but...
