I've had a couple of days off of work and so I've been busy in the crafting department. I wanted to try something new for the background for my fabric pieces. I thought of mosaic, I went to TJMAX and bought inexpensive plates. The hard part was taking a hammer to them and breaking them. I thought it would be fun-taking out all of my pent up frustration and releasing it. But I found it very difficult. Either I have little frustration( I don't think that is the case) or I am very uptight( I think that is more likely). Anyway I found the exercise exhausting and irritating. I did buy more plates and hope to try it again. I think I need to loosen up a bit. Mosaic work was a bit of a challenge for me, the grout work was messy and time consuming, my husband helped me with it. But in the end, I like the texture of the glossy hard finish against the soft of the fabric. So I will be trying it again and with my husbands help will conquer it.
