little bit of video

a bit of fun - are you game to watch?

Endeavour Visit

Yesterday I have a lovely visit to the studio - my mosaic addict mates from Endeavour came over in the bus and put some more tiles down on some bits for the Steve Irwin Tribute mosaic mural. I gave them some spare leps for their workshop, mesh and tons of tile to get them going on a very special mosaic project (it's a secret) and also for future projects.

They also bought some of the gorgeous new tiles in stock - I haven't even had time to use them yet.

"Cybil" Polly's daughter came for a special visit yesterday afternoon and we did some great colour layout on the new grid boards. I will take these boards to the Karalee School next week for the students there to make some great basic patchwork squares for the gigantic chair project!

The cement is being poured on Monday and I am so excited that this project is starting (after a 2 year wait for the community hall to be completed). The chair will be next to the hall. It's going to be a busy couple of months!

I watched "so you think you can dance" one of my favourite tv shows (gosh those Americans can dance!!!) and the other night was wonderful - some fabulous dancing. I can't believe how they do it so effortlessly and briliantly.

I am working on the website at the moment but in an hour will be going to my son's unit, to mosaic the backsplash! NOT interesting at all. I have strict instructions to make it all white vit tile, all white grout (perhaps with a black and white border....sigh) and definitely no 3-D! So funny - I told son that he would have to beg me now for an artwork. So, Dave and I will prep the wall, use white thinset and white grout (everything I don't normally do) but it will be fine in a small, modern kitchen. I just have to work fast as I don't really have time but how could I say no?

My mother is making mosaics in a mad mosaic moment for Christmas Presents...I would buy them all off her if she let me, to me they are priceless!

It's hot today and I am happy to be warm and storms are threatening. We had a little rain the other night - it was such a relief and the plants are just about dead again.

I think I need to add some pink to Brad's kitchen - what do you calling card - one pink tile set in...I have some gorgeous new ones....LOL. Where there is a will there is a way.

have a great weekend!

Cheers and don't have too much pink bubbles!
