This is fabulous and must have been a pain in the ass to grout!

Haha, yes, thanks Becky and crafty_lady, and yes, it was a pain in the ass to grout. When I grout, I turn into a bee-otch and everybody better steer clear and go find something else to do at the other end of the house! Things this large with different levels and bumps is frustrating, one reason being that you just KNOW you are leaving something beautiful buried under the grout. But it's rewarding in the end.

Thank you, nicethyme, Ramona, Dodie and oldcrafty. I am now working on four, yep, four, guitars for one lady. Not real guitars, but guitar shapes that I cut out of Wedi board. I have covered them with white thinset and I have to set up the hanging mechanisms before I start the actual mosaic. One will be all blue, one is to give off a Talavera tile vibe, one blue and green, and one dark color abstract. So I am staying busy.

FAR OUT… literally… in Space! This is gorgeous! How many hours did it take you to create this showpiece? And, I loved your “warning” about grouting, too. I feel the same way as you do when I grout. I don’t talk, answer phones or the doorbell, or even pause to admire (or critique) my handiwork. It is the step that I dread most (grouting drives me crazy), but it is the step that I’m so anxious to do. Does that make sense? Will be looking for your mosaic guitars' posting!
