My latest score and WP
Hello, all. I check here several times a day and it's been really quiet. I went to a hardware store last week to buy a new carborundum stone (kitchen sharpener) that I use to smooth the edges of tesserae. An employee asked me what I used it for and I said "mosaics." A cute young woman who worked there touched my arm and said, "Will you please wait for me; I want to talk to you. As soon as I finish helping this other person, I will be right back." So we paid for our purchase and stood to the side and waited.
So she came back momentarily and said, "Are you interested in some stained glass and tools for free; I am getting out of stained glass and into metals and I need to make some room." So of course I said yes and we made arrangements for us to go to her house the next day. She remarked that she would bring it all to work and have us meet her there but "it wouldn't fit in her car." Well, I said "I have a van," and she said "Perfect." Well, y'all, we went to her house last Friday and she had oodles and oodles of 12"x12" stained glass, racks for the glass, metals drawer units full of cut-up glass, tools including Leponnits, a Glastar grinder, Diamondcrete, colorant, molds for coasters, and I don't even remember what else. I am just floored. This sort of thing never happens to me!
I need to make her something wonderful and drop it by her house as a thank-you gift!
So, I just finished my first Wedi project and I'm in the middle of a birdbath project.
Will post pics of the Wedi project soon. In the meantime, have a great holiday!
