Fred and the penguins

Today, Fred, our neighbour came around and moved the hot water cylinder and rearranged the kitchen plumbing so we can get on with another wall of the house. I spent the day cutting out and piecing a leadlight depicting two emperor penguins ready for the shed door after we paint it black. It nearly drove me mad and I ended up cutting the sky pieces into five which I had ever so carefully managed to cut as two pieces (SIGH!)to make them easier to piece into the lead. I ran a copper filled leadline through the diaganol curve to support it as it is a large door window. Tomorrow I will solder it and maybe put on the putty. We'll see what else crops up.
