Well i had a great time last weekend with my sister, i honestly didn’t think she would enjoy it, not being crafty at all but she surprised me and absolutely loved it. I arrived at her place on Friday afternoon and i just couldn’t get her to start lol even she didn’t think she would enjoy it so of course there was a lot of procrastination on her part lol we got up early on Saturday and took the plunge 🙂 Her neighbour came in for a couple of hours to have a quick lesson and then it was just Julie and I. She loved it that much we ended up doing a marathon 14 hrs straight of mosaics lol good music on in the background , her partner Mark keep coming in at the appropriate times to feed and water us lol and I’ve never seen her so relaxed, she actually slept like a log after that ( not usually a good sleeper) and now she’s determined to keep going, think I’ve created a mosaic monster haha ,
Here’s a few pics for you. After me trying to get her to work our what sort of picture she wanted over the last few weeks !!! I ended up just drawing out this flower pot which she loves, so i know its not a really tech drawing but she was very happy.
Totally engrossed and didn’t want to stop
this was as far as we got before i had to leave
and 3 days later its ready for grouting
I’m very proud of my sister and she really couldn’t be happier with the outcome, I hope you’ve all had a great week, im working on some small mosaic pieces for my new vegie garden so hopefully i’ll have pics soon xo
Well by now I guess you know what I would have been doing this last week, yep more mosaic fun, I really love it
We did have one hiccup at the end of last week and that was another flood in the house, so with 5 of us and about 12 hours of mopping and cleaning there was no damage, with my floors and all at least this time we didn’t have to rip up carpet or floor boards , just washing and steam cleaning after, huge mess but all clean now. This island ended up having about 64ml of water in one night and im sure about 50 of it landed in this house lol alls well that ends well 🙂
So I didn’t get in as much mosaics finished as I had planned but I still finished one piece at least
This one is before grouting
and after, sorry about the pics I should have taken them outside but this was just finished and still setting
I should have had this one finished to but didn’t make it, it will be done in the next day or so
Im actually making these smaller panels to sell at our local craft market in a couple of weeks and really looking forward to it. Its the first time I’ve been really excited about making things to sell so I cant wait to see how I go. Having said that I received a nice surprise in the mail last week , a cheque from the Gallery as they sold one of my mixed media books so that made me very happy.
I also thought i’d show you a piece I did about 8 yrs ago for our friend. It was meant to be a table top but he absolutely refuse to get it dirty or put even 1 glass or cup on it, so its been hung on the wall in his garage in pride of place amongst his other footy memorabilia ever since lol I don’t think I’ve even even shown this to my sibblings as being their team as well I think they’d hold me to ramsom for at least 3 more lol All very one eyed supporters, including me 🙂
So I hope your all enjoying your week and lots and lots accomplished, Keep your fingers crossed for me that we get NO more torrential rain xo
