Leaded glass panel ... in progress.

I started a 5 week class on lead-came stained glass technique.  I've wanted to learn this technique for years and I finally found the time to do it.  Tomorrow is class # 3 (week 3) and things are starting to shape up.  I've already bought my own lead knife and lead cutters (they're called dykes - I'm not making this up) ... yup ... already buying my own tools? ... you bet I'm hooked.  We had to choose between 2 window patterns ... I chose the larger one (19"x13") ... here is a photo of my progress so far ... I'm loving this. 
I'll post photos when it's done.
