OMG this is fun but I am so glad that you have to grout it, not me!! Can't wait to see more. Those roses that climb the outside of back - are they magnets?

OH your chair is going to be darling. I agree the grouting might not be fun. I love all the roses and little birds and the frog!! How cute!!!

Oh...not looking forward to grouting! Will be piping the grout for sure.

andrea_2, the roses are from shower curtain hooks.

Having just completed the Queen of a grouting nightmare, I don't envy you AT ALL, but you'll get it done, and it'll be wonderful. Nice start. I like how you used the squigglies. I never seem to find a place for them, but your arrangement is ideal.

I love the birds and the turtle that looks like it's trying to climb on the chair. That was a great find.

Shower curtain hooks - who'da thunk it? Now I've got something else to shop for!

Looking back at the pictures I noticed what a tidy work area you have. I envy that, but I don't know if I could keep it up. I clean my bench every so often, which really means whenever I'm down to a tiny work area.

How fun that is turning out to be! What a good imagination you have; could never put that together and make it turn out as well as you do! (I've already kept your great idea about the shower curtain hooks from a previous post.)
