21 May, 2012

 

Gorgeous colour and soooooo looking forward to seeing your mosiac P :)

21 May, 2012

 

Think you'll be like all creative people, Pim...never happy with the finished piece...

But, if you don't keep doing it, you go insane...

They say it's a 'gift'...but, sometimes I have to wonder... :))

21 May, 2012

 

can we see a picture before the grouting please?

21 May, 2012

 

That's gorgeous Pimp

21 May, 2012

 

Think you are right Karen, I am creative it seems but....I haven't stop doing it and yet.....???
;)))

Think Pimp may be up to his elbows in grout :))))

21 May, 2012

 

Thank you Sheilar..

Ok Sticki....Because I have just ruined it completely with the grouting....I'd be a rubbish Tiler.

21 May, 2012

 

oh, pimms i bet you havent, anyway you can rub lots of it off, have you got an old toothbrush??

21 May, 2012

 

Is it dry yet???? If not, don't be so quick to judge.

21 May, 2012

 

I'll post the ungrouted....used the wrong grout anyway lil

21 May, 2012

21 May, 2012

21 May, 2012

 

I agree with Lil! You can't mess with things in between stages!!!

Leave it be!!!!!!!!! :)

21 May, 2012

 

Lol....That's the one

21 May, 2012

 

Go do something else and wait! :)

21 May, 2012

 

He isn't listening to us Karen.......
Shall we place a little wager??
One Million dollars that we will all think it is magnificent when he shows us :))))

21 May, 2012

 

I will show you all, I shall leave it until tomorrow mistakes are all part of the learning curve. I am very learned. ;)

21 May, 2012

21 May, 2012

Raspberry sound coming your way..... :0

21 May, 2012

 

May I add my raspberry sound to your raspberry sound, please, Lil?

21 May, 2012

 

Ah, finally back-up! I was hoping you could offer up something a tad more threatening Gat :))

21 May, 2012

 

Not from this far away, Lil. Sorry.

22 May, 2012

 

Oh I'm sure we could come up with something Gattina ;)))

22 May, 2012

 

Nah, growling and pulling faces loses it's impact once you're outside the 100 mile zone.

22 May, 2012

 

Pimpernel, that's gorgeous.
And, Sticki, one word for you: Beauregard(e)!
