Another Quick Gift

texaswildSeptember 10, 2008

DD only gave me a two day notice on a request from DGD's birthday gift. Threw this together last evening after finishing the birdbath. After six/eight photos, I gave up trying to get it to show all colors. Going to Dallas on Friday for the Saturday's 20th b.d. party for Granddaughter. This is just one of several gifts from Nana.

Katie's Gift

Slow, you're amazing. That is gorgeous for a "thrown together" gift! That lucky girl! Someday I hope to be able to throw something together in less than a summer. I truly love these pieces you do and will give one a try someday for sure. What an inspiration!

How impressive! I really love it! I am sure she will treasure it, I know I would! Don't feel impelled to let Katie know it was "thrown together", it certainly does not look it!

You really outdid yourself this time. That is lovely and does not look thrown together. I am sure she will love it.
Great job Slow.

Y'all blow me away w/your compliments. The left cross I cut from a roll of old tin I got from a friend's barn, turned the edges in - middle cross is made from natural stone tiles from Lowes, and the blue one of course is glass. My stock is down, so need to get to HobLob. Nana - do you use a mold for the thinset, or just fashion them by hand? I'll try your method, cuz I always make too much and toss lots of it away - thanks for the thought. Y'all sure do make my days happier.

What a special and very lovely gift, Slow. It's something that your Katie will treasure... forEVER!

I sure hope you've stayed in Dallas! I've been so concerned about you and Flag today!
Sending positive thoughts and prayers for you, your homes and folks in the whole area. Ike is sure a nasty one!
Be safe!

I missed this Slow!!! How beautiful and precious. Katie is going to LOVE it, can't wait for you to tell us how she liked her special gift from her Nana. Truly speaks from the heart and no one would every believe you just "through it together" so don't you dare tell anyone but us. LOL.
You are a true artist and your talent is here to see.

What's next???

Thanks again, y'all. She loved it, and found the little message "Nana hearts you" right away. Next is still bubbling in my heat, and w/be a gift for a special friend. I went to HobLob yesterday to get a couple pieces to put in it. Have to cut the board for the substrate, hopefully today.
