kate5kiwis: mosaic munchies


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

mosaic munchies

we had our biannual-garden-binge in the weekend:
well, i mostly pointed and cheered *well done* etc, and D17 and Hubby worked out their biceps-es: digging, weeding and removing triffids.
and then i decided to finish *five* little mosaic tiles that i started last year:

we *love* this little guy, and we think he looks so cute munching his way along our front path...

I just looked at these again... so fun!!! Did you break the tiles yourself? They fit together so well... I've never done mosaics before. I have some tiles to do a mirror, but it scares me! :)

hello chicks
:o) looks like there's a Global Caterpillar Fan Club out there... YAY for eric carle!!!!!
yes, i did design these myself..
and yes, i broke the tiles up using a hammer. the best way to do this is to sandwich the tile between sheets of newspaper and then *whack* and watch a few shards of tile escape and then get two stuck in your foot..)
i really *should* have neatened the edges of each piece, but as usual, i was rushing a miracle (movie line).
but i like less-than-perfect things, i think they look more kid-friendly.
that's my excuse and i'm sticking to it :o)
