According to the author, Stu Goldman, "This is not a standard pattern book, but rather a project book that contains patterns." He starts with a stylized drawing of a cat, and turns it into nine different stained glass items: a box, a business card holder, a suncatcher, and so forth. He then does this eight more times -- hence the "9 x 9" in the title. . Mr. Goldman also give us 15 more cat faces and 12 more cat bodies to try out. If our math is correct, that works out to 2,268 unique cat projects. That ought to keep you busy. 48 pages. Wardell Publications.

This was one of our best selling books back in the day, but it mysteriously went out of print. Just as mysteriously, it is back in print. Contains full-size templates for constructing 42 different stained glass boxes. Clear, complete instructions cover tools, materials and techniques. Motifs include floral, butterfly, heart, geometric, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Pennsylvania Dutch, contemporary, and more. Includes a list of supply sources (which is moot, because of course you will be buying your supplies from us). Color illustrations on covers.

For the orchid afficionado, this well crafted book contains 17 designs for orchid projects, including windows, lampshades and jewelry boxes. Each design is anatomically correct, and is denoted by its scientific name in binomial nomenclature. The popular "Showy Lady's Slipper", or Cypripedium reginae, is represented twice, in a panel as well as a lampshade. The recommended glass selections of ripples and mottles create some breathtaking results. As with most books from Wardell Publications, some instructions, tips and tricks are included that will be useful for even the experienced craftperson.

The idea here is to create a compatible grouping, using a theme or a compatible design. For instance, the "Shell Ensemble" consists of a tray, napkin and candle holders. Each of them has one or more sea shells etched onto the glass parts. Four fold-out sections 22" x 34" make up into four distinctly separate ensembles.
