Beautiful work Lulu and very well photographed too. :-)

Lulu, that is brilliant, what an imagination and what skill. I see a face at the top of the tree trunk. It is only half visible, but it's definitely there....It looks so different when it's grouted....you really are very talented Lulu! :D

The Sunset Owl -excellent name for a pub!

It's nice to see your mosaics. They're wonderful :o) I enjoy seeing what interests people have, other than just plants :o)

2 Jul, 2012

 

Thank you all...now desperately trying to find the hidden face Karen!
Now I don't know what it was Stevie but early evening still light and still lots of on....Pigeon feathers on the lawn. It couldn't have been a fox, too early and busy, not a Milliepuss surely bird too big and no carcass in her hutch. Pointers not interested...A big golden retriever passed by...could it have been her I wonder. So sad because it had a mate.
On a happier note I have 3 new fish in the pond!

2 Jul, 2012

 

Fantastic mosaic lULu..love the big fat pipgeon!

2 Jul, 2012

 

Big fat dead pigeon now, see my previous post!!!

2 Jul, 2012

 

hmm, 'the dead big fat pigeon' yes not a good name for a pub : ( sad, oh well new fish great, Are you going to give them names or would that tempt fate. Did you find out if there was an issue with the pond?

2 Jul, 2012

 

I love the way the light hits off the glass.

2 Jul, 2012

 

Let's go to 'the big fat dead pigeon' wonder whats on the menu?
No names ever again for my fish...forgot to test the water though but all fish seem well.

2 Jul, 2012

 

lol

2 Jul, 2012

 

big, fat, dead, yes sorry order of adjectivals wrong there, although with emphasis it could be a compound noun phrase, the... dead big-fat-pigeon then it would be correct

2 Jul, 2012

 

You really are talented,Lulu! I love the photos of your mosaic! :-))

2 Jul, 2012

 

Oh wow, that is beautiful. What size is it? It's difficult to guage from the pics Jx

2 Jul, 2012

 

Thanks Balcony and Jane. The mosaic is 18 x 24 "
Off to make some more now as there's a chance of a stall in our local Boules day festival on the 14th July!

3 Jul, 2012

 

Get cracking girl. I'm in same boat. 3 stalls this week and a glass/jewellery party tom night................ 2.30am before bed last night and same again tonight. What am I doing on here..................helppppppp! Jx

3 Jul, 2012

 

fabulous lulu, looking forward to the pictures!! i have in mind a series of 3 ~ raindrop shape ~ as if we havent had enough!!

3 Jul, 2012

 

what are you making jane ~ the glass or the jewellery or both?
well done you for working so hard and still managing to pop in here ~ hope you have time for coffee too!!!

3 Jul, 2012

 

Ah Sticki am female, can drink coffee, type and wait for kiln, whilst planning next firing all at same time. lol. (sorry guys, not really sexist)x
Am making coasters in glass, couple of dishes, with copper fish set in them (inspired by visit to seaside) and dichroic glass jewellery. Working on new technique, that I've not seen other artists do. Will use these pieces to make a bracelet.
I also work with pearls a lot and do stringing etc for other jewellers (not many people still knot on silk) so have a few strings to do as well. These will go down well on the jewellery party.
It's nice to be back with GYO again, but I had better get my skates on and make stock, otherwise I might just be asking for red cross parcels. Need to put some dosh back in the coffers, seem to have spent a small fortune on the garden this year. So nice to watch it being destroyed by rain, hail and slugs. Grrrrrrrrrrr. Jxxx

3 Jul, 2012

 

that sounds fantastic!! love to see some pictures of them please, if you have time, especially like the copper fish. how amazing. you clever girl.
hope it goes well

3 Jul, 2012

 

:) x

Firstly, Lulu: What a talent, those are really lovely pics of your fabulous mosaic.
Secondly, Sticki: You've changed your picture. Where is it - looks fabulous?
Thirdly, Jane: I love the sound of what you are making and agree with Sticki about the copper fish - very appealing. Hope you do well with sales; know all about spending all one's money on the garden - sorry- swimming pool!!!

3 Jul, 2012

 

its Harris Tuesday bear, i was there on holiday a few weeks ago, wish i was still there.

3 Jul, 2012

 

Is Harris still there. or has it been washed away?
Ohhh TBear, bet my swimming pool is bigger than yours. Mine has a full garden floating on the top of it too. Grrrrr. Jx

3 Jul, 2012

 

harris had no rain at all jane, hadnt had for 8 weeks.

3 Jul, 2012

 

Just adds to the weirdness of our weather. Can we send them some? Jx

3 Jul, 2012

 

looks like they may have some now, i use igoogle for my home page, it lets you put various weather forecasts on and i always look to see what its like up there ~ rain today if google is right.

3 Jul, 2012

 

Hello Harris, welcome to our world. x

3 Jul, 2012

 

oh, poor Harris, its so windy there they dont have any trees!

but it has to be about the MOST beautiful part of the UK

3 Jul, 2012

 

Jane, you should put a few pics of your crafts on, and join the mosaic crew ; )

4 Jul, 2012

 

Sticki, I should have realised, having enjoyed your Harris blog at the time.

4 Jul, 2012

4 Jul, 2012

 

Sticki and Steve,I did a little blog about some of the things I make in glass, that has a few pics on. It's my non gardening blog. have a look there. Jxx

4 Jul, 2012

 

Oh ok, thanks jane

4 Jul, 2012

 

Found it! Sorry I missed it before, it was the day I went on holiday!

It's fabulous, you clever lady.

4 Jul, 2012

 

Thanks honey bunny :-)) x

4 Jul, 2012

 

How's it going Jane?! You, me, Sticki and Nana and Pimpernel just lurve Dichroic glass! We have expensive taste!

5 Jul, 2012

 

Hi Lulu. I am making dichroic jewellery as I type.. Infact, it's what I sell most of. I must make about 40 pendants a week, plus earrings, cufflinks and anything else I can think of. Jx

5 Jul, 2012

 

you should have been making the olympic medals!!

5 Jul, 2012

 

lol Just got a phone call from my sister (She's equine physio to the British Team) and she's got me and some of the family, tickets to the show jumping. Should be good, never been to an olympic thing before. To tell the truth, I dislike sports, unless they have horses or plants in them :-)

5 Jul, 2012

 

Lucky you!

5 Jul, 2012

 

Congratulations, Jane, & I hope you enjoy the show & the horses. :-))

6 Jul, 2012

 

Thank you, I will. But, I am now having panic attacks, thinking of terrorists and the like. What is our world coming to? Jx

6 Jul, 2012

 

dont think about it jane, dont let them spoil it for you. surely it is incredibly unlikely.

6 Jul, 2012

 

Of course it is Sticki, I think it's because I am taking my 2 young nieces and am just thinking of stupid possibilities. Silly really. Jx

6 Jul, 2012

 

Oh dear Jane, panic attacks, you are as bad as me...I am worrying about 3, yes 3 Lady Gaga concerts dear hubby has got us tickets for! I don't enjoy planes or trains or big crowds anymore!

6 Jul, 2012

 

and there would i be worrying about what to have in my sandwiches!!!

oh lulu, will you still be able to enjoy the concerts?

6 Jul, 2012

 

Lol, sandwiches, hows about lettuce and marmite!!
As for the concerts............she's fab to watch on stage, it's just the crowds, last time we had seats, this time D wants to get in with the crowd.........all with their mobiles held aloft....mini monsters!

6 Jul, 2012

 

will he want to be surfing?

6 Jul, 2012

 

i have yet to try lettuce and marmite, must give it a go.

6 Jul, 2012

 

David's band is headlining tonight in Bristol!! Bless!
If you like marmite, adding lettuce is yummy! Almost as good as banana and peanut butter and marmalade (in my youth!)

6 Jul, 2012

 

WOW well done david!!!

i love marmite!

can try the peanut butter and marmalade tonight on the bread i just baked and nearly burned!

btw have you heard of a band called 'Runrig' ?

6 Jul, 2012

 

I haven't heard of Runrig Sticki.
OOOhhh peanut butter, marmalade and homemade bread............so not good for the waistline!!!!!!! but yummy! Drooling.
Am off to have salad and haddock!

6 Jul, 2012

 

waist what??

6 Jul, 2012

 

Hmmmm, I used to have one, it's growing a bit thanks to my nasty habit of buying bacon frazzels everytime I go to the garage!
Right, off to cook!

6 Jul, 2012

 

now on my second piece of peanut butter and marmalade!! it is SOOO good!

6 Jul, 2012

 

you dont need to worry you are really slim!!

6 Jul, 2012

 

Sticki Runrig is Mick's favourite group. From Skye yes? Apparently lead singer ran as MP for Skye, but didn't get there. Jx

6 Jul, 2012

 

oh, im really pleased!!!! yes im sure they are from Skye!!

i have only just found them but they seem to have had a change of lead singer at some point.

listening to it all on youtube so i can decide which cd is best!!!

6 Jul, 2012
