Blockhead

The bad news is, I have to cut 35 more of these one-and-a-half-inch squares. This particular plate was cooperative, but most of them aren't.

Spring Break

I'm working on this mosaic, barely.
Quilted mosaic

I feel like I'm still recovering from that last mosaic. I was working on it about 20 hours a week. I need to start making some smaller pieces. I've said that a lot for a while, but I'm attracted to larger pieces, so I'm not taking action.

Since I wasn't able to post photos while I was working on that last commission, here are a few progress photos for you to enjoy:

The Thingamajig

I don't know what this kitchen utensil is technically called, but it's something like Spaghetti Noodle Grabber. I call it the Kool-Aid Stirrer.


And it makes a good back scratcher, if you're in a pinch. 

What do you call this thing? Any other uses for it?
