My favourite gift by far was the stash of ribbons she gave me, which actually belonged to her Mum. Now a girl can never have too much ribbon and this lot will certainly come in handy in future craft projects.
I’ve always admired the art of mosaic, but I’ve never given it a go myself, so when I was lucky enough to win a kit in Victoria’s giveaway, this was my opportunity to try it out.
When the kit arrived, I was like a child on Christmas morning, I just couldn’t wait to open it up and get all the pieces out. I’m a little like a bull in a china shop when it comes to delicate craftwork, I have far too little patience and am useless when it comes to the fine details, but I’m pretty pleased with the finished result- albeit a little messy.
Some of the tiles are a little out of line, and I may have gone a little crazy with the grout, but part of me craves imperfection, where is the beauty in perfection? It sure has given me a bit of an incline to make my own mosaic, using old broken bits of pottery. I’ve already gathered a few bits together found at the allotment, and I think this could quite possibly be my next big project!
What have you been making lately?
