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

 o
RE: Rosie's progress--She's come to life

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


 o
RE: Rosie's progress--She's come to life

Darn. I can't see her. She must have run off. Please bring her back so I can see what she looks like.

I just love how you used the lid on her chest! White grout?


 o
RE: Rosie's progress--She's come to life

Calm,
You know that's still in debate. I'm thinking a grey or a tan. She's is a sort of, off white with drk grey, sooooo. I just haven't made the decision yet. And I'm stil tweeking her...I better grout her soon or nobody will be able to tell she's even a horse!!! LOL!!!!!! She's gonna be all tiles!!! Later girls, Cathy


 o
RE: Rosie's progress--She's come to life

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.


 o
RE: Rosie's progress--She's come to life

Slow, I don't know about completely tiles but she's already getting more!!!!! I just couldn't help myself!!!! Later, Cathy


 o
RE: Rosie's progress--She's come to life

Awesome! I can see where this could be never ending!

And as U can see she's getting soooooooooo much more beuatification that I can't really say when she will be done! (Should have grouted her the first day) I always do this.

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!!!

 o
RE: Rosie's progress--She's come to life

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


 o
RE: Rosie's progress--She's come to life

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....


 o
RE: Rosie's progress--She's come to life

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


 o
RE: Rosie's progress--She's come to life

I LOVE all your additions. No way could I leave a centimeter of empty space. You SURE you don't want to finish covering her?????


 o
RE: Rosie's progress--She's come to life

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
