Mosaic Weekend


Jeff and I took off for the UP this past weekend, visiting with Jeff’s sister and brother-in-law…Laurie and Hank.  I packed a bunch of glass for Laurie and I.    This was Laurie’s first try at mosaics, and I do believe she has an eye and a knack for it. 

Here are her mosaics, before grouting…

Her warm up and training exercise was a small “something” on a 6 x 6 tile.
