Just Practicing

My mosaic making that is and I see that I need a lot of practice. Why oh why won't my lines go straight and uniformly? My subject is "Breakfast on the Deck." Breakfast out there was good fun as it was sunny and pretty warm with lots of birdsong. (Don't let that much loved flannel shirt fool you!)

I'm practicing because Mary at Little Red House is going to begin a "Mosaic Madness" if she has enough takers. Would you like to join the party, too? Just stop by and let her know.


  1. Your mosaic looks fine to me, but then again I've never made one so I may not be the best judge. Breakfast on your deck looks like a wonderful way to start the day.

  2. I think you did a good job, I didn't notice any problems!
    Breakfast outside, how nice!

  3. Your mosaic looks perfect to me...very professional! I can nearly hear BBJ whistling up the birds! Breakfast must have been yummy, I don't see a bit of it on the flannel!

  4. NIce job, and it looks like you had a lovely day!

  5. I don't think I could possibly add one more new craft to my never ending list...but good luck...I love mosaic!

    Stay Cozy, Carrie

  6. Now you *have* to stop this moaning about how you need mosaic practice. And how your "lines won't go straight." As 'Happy @ Home' said... it looks fine.

    Now me!!!!!!! I'm a diff hill of beans, entirely! I do have troubles with making mosaics. Trouble with knowing what size to make my individual pics. Trouble with knowing what size to make my whole mosaic. Trouble with placing the pics. Trouble with knowing which "lines" are which. So I can set the colors, I prefer. Etc.

    Lots of ^&(*&&%$^&*^% troubles with mosaics. Me! I do! You don't. So there! >,-))))))))

    On top of all this, you dangle a temptation to join in some "Mosaic Madness" party. Oh sigh... No time. No time. Already stretched thin, on the Net. Already belong to tooooo many Net places.

    And still, you dangle more temptation in my path! -sigh- -moan- -pout- -whine-

    Aunt Amelia's AtticDear you,

  7. Every time I look at your sweet husband's face, I smile. He is such a gentle heart! I love his smile - makes me think all is right and good and we will all be happy. You are a lucky woman!

    Loved your mosaic - Looks like breakfast on the deck is a wonderful time. Have a great fun and loving week-end.

  8. Oh breakfast out on the deck sounds great.
    I think you've done quite well with your mosaic.
    Good idea about my wheel. I'll look around for a good wall. :-)

  9. Good Sunday to you!

    I love the new header photo. Your home looks so warm and friendly. Thanks for always lifting me up. What a great post today!
