Reflections in the garden

Here it is Lulu!

I cant describe that magic that happens when I go to Lulu land! And I cant thank Lulu enough, this was made with a lot of her patient help, calm encouragement and pure inspiration. Lulu I just love it and its going in a place I can look at it all day because that way I can always remember the absolutely wonderful times I have spent with you. Thank you so very very much. Its just magical.

Patient teacher + willing student = brilliant result. Well done, it's a beautiful eye catcher :)

15 May, 2012

 

What a beautiful object. You + Lulu make a great team. Congrats to you both on producing this lovely panel. Is that you hooked now then, ST?

15 May, 2012

 

Like fern fronds...brilliant.!

15 May, 2012

 

thanks pixi, i began to realise how magical it was when i took the photos ~ it reflect the different colours too!!

thanks gee, its even more reflective than i dared hope!

oh thanks Oji ~ i rather think you are right, I learned to cut the glass this time ~ so thats it now!! have to find the nearest glass supply next!!!

how is your mosaic and glass getting on pimms?

15 May, 2012

 

Not started yet Sticki.....I need a supplier where I can see the glass..Though I do have enough to do something.

15 May, 2012

 

that ripply one you have is really hard to use i found, beautiful and there are a few little bits in this one but the hard part is getting the grout out of the fissures afterwards!! probably my fault for being too messy!!

15 May, 2012

 

I am tempted to climb up in to the attic to look for some missing glass...but not sure I will be able to get back down again. :/

15 May, 2012

 

oh no thats not so good and definitely not advisable!!!

do you have a base to put the glass onto?

15 May, 2012

 

Lol...Very ambitious 5ftx3ft or 4ftx2.5ft bases as you can see more glass is a must............or a saw.

15 May, 2012

 

yep, quite ambitious but it will be fabulous, i love glass. how about a little one to experiment first? eg a small garden slab/slate?? i think you can get some around 12" square?

15 May, 2012

 

wow! Well done Sticki...that truly is fab! :)) I am very envious of both the mosaic mirror masterpiece AND the time spent with the inspirational Lulu! :))

15 May, 2012

 

I've rushed back from work, straight to my computer and here it is!!
Sticki, it's so lovely. Will you take a few more pics of it as the light changes?
Sticki is the perfect pupil, I have my little say, go off to make us a cuppa, come back and this magical mosaic has grown into it's fern shape. So reflective. Well done you.
And guess what I forgot to give you........in it's big pot!!!

15 May, 2012

 

ps try and photograph in the shade, that lovely green will shine out!

15 May, 2012

 

Well done Sticki. That is superb! - Love it! You must find somewhere really nice to put it in the garden now. I can really picture it at the back of an arch with a large pot of something in foreground. Nice to find hidden talents. Well done to Lulu too for being such a good teacher.

15 May, 2012

 

lulu is brilliant poppylover, you should have a try too!

im so pleased with it lulu, it took about 10 photos to get this one cos everywhere you put it it reflects a different colour ~ which i love!!! that photo is pretty much in the shade, right now its completely in shade, in front of me but its still shining away ..........its made me want to make more!!! i could put this one in about 3 different places!!!

i remembered what was in the pot today!!! never mind ~ maybe i could come and fetch it some time??? thanks again lulu ~ and btw lunch was absolutely gorgeous. i think its marmite sandwiches for me today!!!

Well done Sticki ,it's not only a work of art but a great reminder of a wonderful day and friendship :o))

15 May, 2012

 

absolutely right about the wonderful day and friendship amy, thank you.

15 May, 2012

 

True, true, true.
Goy should have a special 'friendship' page! And what meeting up means to us and how well virtual friends can get on together and what it means to us.

15 May, 2012

 

Well done....this is amazing Sticki! The design is incredible - you must be very very very very pleased with it! Well done to Lulu for being such an inspirational teacher too :))

15 May, 2012

 

i am delighted scottish, and so grateful to lulu.

in fact im tempted to do another cos there are now about 3 places this could go!!

15 May, 2012

 

So that means another two !

15 May, 2012

 

Yeh, you are right P....two more!!
Different sizes but similar colour and design Sticki - would make a nice wee trio :))

15 May, 2012

 

at least another 2 !!!! good idea scottish, anyone fancy helping???

15 May, 2012

 

Definitely sticki, I could come and help you get in a mess.lol.
You`ve certainly got the hang of it, love the design its so fluid.

15 May, 2012

 

im learning stroller! yes it is messy but i dont mind that!!! thank you, i like that flow shape!!

15 May, 2012

 

This is so lovely and so effective. It is unique too - how very special.

15 May, 2012

15 May, 2012

15 May, 2012

15 May, 2012

15 May, 2012

15 May, 2012

16 May, 2012

16 May, 2012

16 May, 2012

 

Just shows what you can do (after a few drinks ; )

16 May, 2012

 

well i might have guessed!!!!!!! where that comment came from!!!!!!!

16 May, 2012

 

That's a good idea Sticks. There is a wild goose vodka that's a very pretty bottle!

16 May, 2012

 

oooh yes i know that one ~ i expect i saw it in the shop you understand.

16 May, 2012

 

Tripped over it! hahahaha! Where those other pics then! I might put a couple on to!

16 May, 2012

16 May, 2012

 

I can't..post it if I don't look too jolly silly!

16 May, 2012

16 May, 2012

 

Oh no! My bottom!?

16 May, 2012

16 May, 2012

 

NO i wouldnt do that

16 May, 2012

16 May, 2012

 

Waiting with baited breath!

16 May, 2012

16 May, 2012

 

So are you!
Couldn't put the one up of puppies looking in your bag when you arrived as my car plates were on show for all to see.

16 May, 2012

 

oooops better look quick

16 May, 2012

 

How beautiful.......

16 May, 2012

 

Thank you Dotty, I love the colours. Lulu makes it easy.

17 May, 2012

 

That is amazingly beautiful Sticki :o))

17 May, 2012

 

oh, you are kind, thank you annella

17 May, 2012

 

and that grout looks very affective :)

so when do the classes start Lulu?

17 May, 2012

 

Wow Sticki I just love your mosaic sooo much I have nominated for GOYepedia it is so reflective and the way you have cut the glass is brilliant WELL DONE YOU:)

17 May, 2012

 

i like the grout too stevie ~ bit like a stained glass window effect???

i hope lulu will let me sign up for next term ~ if i promise to be good???

oh, thank you nana!!! i didnt do all the cutting ~ only some ~ lulu did lots for me.

17 May, 2012

 

Maybe we can try smashing glass next time!
Classes start asap or when we run out of chutney....(not for ages!)

17 May, 2012

 

just so long as the glass is empty lulu!!!!

17 May, 2012

 

Ha ha ha hic!

17 May, 2012

 

:-)

17 May, 2012

 

not entirely connected but my favorite party clip ; )

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGy6txj8FQ0

17 May, 2012

 

is that you body surfing in the red and white outfit stevie and will it be ok to have that party in your polytunnel???

17 May, 2012

 

I love it Sticki.....clever clever you!

18 May, 2012

 

no janey ~ clever lulu ~ she is the one that made this possible but thank you, really glad you like it.

18 May, 2012

 

That is beautiful, Sticki! It must look wonderful with the sun shining on it.

19 May, 2012

 

the good thing is melchi it shines even without the sun ~ i hoped it would brighten my garden ~ it certainly does, now i fancy doing more!!! thank you!!!

19 May, 2012

 

It's clearly been made with love - hence the beautiful result. Lulu is obviously an inspirational teacher, especially since you'd like to make more. Maybe you could just keep moving it around the garden to wherever it looks best at the time.

19 May, 2012

 

Good idea, thank you Tuesday you are right about lulu she is brilliant!

19 May, 2012

 

Aw shucks!! But thank you for all your compliments. You are a natural, so not much of my input is necessary!

20 May, 2012

 

I wouldn't have known where to start or have a clue as to how to make it happen without you lulu!

20 May, 2012

 

Oh yes you would!

20 May, 2012

 

oh no i wouldnt!!!

20 May, 2012

 

Ya would too!
Why isn't this on Goyapedia?

20 May, 2012

 

no idea!!??

20 May, 2012

 

Stunning :) well done you!!!

22 May, 2012

 

My tree fern is just like this now...ready to flick it's little finger..

22 May, 2012

 

Thank you Cheepcheep! Its in the garden now ~ opposite the kitchen window!!!

Oh wow pimms, please will you put a photo on, they are such special plants ~ i love them.
