Today she reminded me of more subtle signs of her amazing-awesomeness:
Slurp Slurp = Praise the Lord.
I am not nearly as awesome but I am going to show off my latest project. No more about God, so if your are just reading my blog for the fabulous spiritual insights (and I feel sorry for you if you are) then you may stop now. But if you want to see my art skills advance to the level of a somewhat inept ninth-grader, keep on keepin-on.
When we last saw this project it was a partly glued mosaic design. Here it is at stage 2, all tiles glued on.
At this point I realized some of the border tiles were over the edge, and my original plans to use the shadow-box lid frame were now kaput. But I learned to do this from a book that had an entire section called Mistakes. So I don't feel too badly. In fact, I don't feel badly at all.
Here is the stage that makes me bite my fingernails like it's the ninth inning and the Cubs are up by 2 runs and the man whose name we no longer speak aloud in our house is coming in to
ruin the game pitch.
I actually had to go lie down and stay away while the grout settles a bit. Then the fun part, wiping off the extra grout to see what it will really look like:
It's not completely done, another grout wiping session coming up, but you can see what it will look like. I'm happy. Cubs Win. Cubs Win.
