Three Kinda Sorta Maybe Cool New Books Just In

Lava & Cube Lanterns
- includes full-size patterns and instructions for 12 lanterns. Adding the electric to the lantern is made easy with instructions and clear illustrations.

Prairie Miniatures
-panels ranging from 3"x5" to 6"x10", these suncatchers are quick "one afternoon" projects that will add a touch of class to any small space in your home. All but one of the 24 designs are comprised of entirely straight lines making these projects perfect for beginners. All of the projects in Prairie Style Miniatures are shown in full color to help you choose color schemes.

Fused Glass & Wood Wildlife Projects
- what started as a fun way to use the cigar boxes that Don Greene collected has evolved into a book that combines fused glass wildlife patterns with wood settings. Don provides patterns for creating a variety of small fused glass panels that look especially at home when placed into a wooden box lid or wooden frame. You'll find patterns for deer, bear, eagles and rainbow trout, as well as a butterfly, dragonfly and bumblebee. Instructions are included for both creating the fused animals, as well as preparing a wooden box to accept your finished panel. Many of the projects in Fused Glass & Wood Wildlife Projects make great gifts for those "hard-to-shop-for" guys in your life. Cigar boxes easily available at your local cigar store.
