    In-Depth Apple Blossoms & Blue by Cynthia Knox

    I have just started to work on this kit and I am enjoying it. I think it will teach me a lot about coloring glass which is my main reason for purchasing it. The instructions are clear and easy to follow.

          Very pleased!

          I loved how the In-depth tutorials are now in more of a booklet or magazine format. It makes it a lot easier to find what I needed. The information within is great as always.
