At crochet class we made additional squares for the blanket that will be donated. This time it was the box car stitch.  I learned this stitch several years ago when I was just starting to crochet but have not made it since.  I remember not liking the look of it when I first did it, but I believe that was because I was still stumbling my way through patterns. This time I enjoyed it, and felt it looked more like what it was supposed to.

Earlier in the day I picked up the fused glass plate which was all fired and ready. I am so happy that the pieces of glass maintained enough of their shape and did not turn into red blobs.  I like the softness the firing produces and am looking forward to doing this again.
