PRETTY?

Keera got tired of dressing her dolls yesterday.


ABOVE:  So poor Tallulah got 'dressed' too.
I saved the dog before she died of heat exhaustion.
Not long after, Keera packed a mental and ended up in bed early, the long, hot afternoons are getting to everyone.

Today is supposed to be the same, then tomorrow some relief with, (predicted), wet weather on the way.  Yaaaa.

As for today... meh.  Don't know.  I will probably paint the next batch of backing boards for the ink painting.  

Maybe Stew has some ideas for the day?  Time will tell...

ONWARD...

Oh yeah... what do ya think of this one?...


ABOVE:  I did this one the other night, and just love it. YES, it's bloody blue, but still ... so cool!

1.26 pm:  So we have stayed home and just chilled.
I've made a few more tiles:





ABOVE:  The first one is going to be a painting, the next three will be trivets.  

NO, I won't be making coasters, tile or patchwork.  Too many people make coasters to sell already.


Stew is out mowing the lawns, it's stinkin' hot.  I've not ventured outdoors at all.
I've got several more tiles framed ready for sale, and about 4 more drying, they will be trivets.

And I'm not making any more till after my stall.  No point making any more, in case they don't sell.

Stew has sorted dinner for today.  Sausages on the BBQ, home made coleslaw and home made potato salad.  What a man.  He cooks at least one night a week so I'm thankful for that.

Bedtime early tonight, I'm so tired!
Dinner was lovely btw, Stew did a good job.

  1. Omg Tallulah looks gorgeous! I prefer the colours in the other files but I know you absolutely love blue. Maybe that is the one you keep? So have you tried them as trivets yet? I would like one if you have....

    2. Meh.... I will put one on the bench TODAY and give it a whirl. I'm sure they will be just fine as trivets, as long as ya don't drop something heavy on them! I'm putting cork tile on the back of the trivet tiles. There will be some small ones and bigger ones, prices still to be determined, but I'm thinking $10 small and $15 big.

  3. So wish we had a heat problem here on the west coast so much rain it's hard to believe it's summer. We have had the fire going and the summer clothes have had very little wear.

  4. Love your hair and the tile. The tile works because of the green blobs, makes you look more closely and appreciate the whole tile.

  5. I love the blue one, it looks stunning. Gary is away for a couple of weeks from Monday so I might do a sneaky day trip and come to the fair to see you :-)

  7. How cute is that. Glad to hear you came to the rescue. In answer to your questions about snow removal. About 90% of us on the street use this service. They only pass when it snows over 5cm. No one has time to shovel the driveway and get to work. Let alone come back from work and have to dig out to park. Snow is extremely heavy more often than not. I will try and get a video for you next time it storms. Enjoy the heat. -20C expected here.

  12. I wish we had people making coasters near us ... I've been looking for some for ages. The only ones I have found are the cheap and nasty looking glass ones in the $2 shops, the Jasons ones or the NZ-themed souvenir ones. We have had two of our coasters break so only have two left. :(
