She's finished...I put the last tile on this afternoon. I'll probably grout tomorrow if I'm not in town too long. It's about a 60mile rt to town and I so a week or more worth of shopping so she actually probably won't get grouted til Sun. But either way I'll post pics as soon as she grouted...She's changed since I started, but for the better I think!!! Later, Cathy

Good morning, I tweeked her a bit last night. I always do that with all my projects. I sit them where I can see them for a day or two and decide what else they need. Probably won't grout til tomorrow. Always easier with no kids around. So hopefully I'll have finished pics tomorrow. She sure has been fun. Later, Cathy

What w/be wrong w/all tiles? She's beautiful as is, but I wouldn't be able to resist covering her completely. I vote for charcoal grout - darkish.

GIRLIE!!!! She is spectacular. I can see this in charcoal grout. She's sure to win a prize. Try to get her on display somewhere for many eyes to gaze upon her. What a fantastic job you did!!!

Hey,
OMG , U are not gonna believe it, but this morning I added more!!! I told my hubby last night that she was done!!! He just laughed..(which I thought was a little rude! LOL!!!) anyway this morning I looked at her and decided the nose needed some bling...so I fixed her nose....and a little fix elsewhere..now she's really done!!! I hope.....anyway tomorrow I will grout and post...maybe...OMG she has become an obsession!!!! It really has to end...Hopefully it has...we'll see....it has...I've lloked at her all day and not felt the need to do anything else...Later, Cathy

Whoo hoo!!! She sounds done then! I was Shocked yesterday, when DH was changing our toilet and actually said, "I'd better save this toilet for your garden art..." It's a lovely green one....Dh...who is always on my case about my unending garden art projects...and the "stashes" of "stuff" all over the yard/house....

OOOHHH TOO funny Calam!!! I have one in the shed too!!! He never says it but I think, he (The Hubby)thinks I've lost my ever lovin mind...., But doesn't bother me and he knows it, probably why he never says anything!!! If I ever get around to doing all the projects I have stashed---well I know that will prbably never happen...that's why i just keep at it...Later, Cathy

I don't think so Slow, she's done!
I thought about continuing, but decided a little of the antique part of her should be left showing. But if I don't grout her soon that could change!. ....Later, Cathy
