something different

It is a mosaic bowling ball.
This my first attempt at mosaic - I learned a lot!
One thing I learned is that you will need twice the amount of stone/tiles than you have.
I ran out of the black stones and of course the store was out of them when I went to buy more.
So, my pattern became a bit more random than I wanted.
I used grey grout because I wanted it to look like cement but the white and mirrored pieces don't show like I thought they would.
I have had this bowling ball in my garage for a year
I looked at it everyday and thought -oh yeah -I was going to......
Now I can look outside and say - oh yeah- I did that!
I did mosaic a 9 in the design so I would remember the year it was done.
Andrew and Reagan made stepping stones

This one is Andrew's He is going to put it in the flower bed at his new house. We have been busy moving them the last two days.
This one is Reagan's. She is going to put hers next to the one she made in Girl Scouts.
I found it interesting that one is very random and the other is very symmetrical -is that a boy/girl thing, an age thing, or
nothing at all?


  1. I love the bowling ball. Of course everything you do is fantastic.

  2. The stepping stones are awesome. I love the glass pieces!
