* Robin Mosaic

Happy Thursday!

Firstly, let me welcome my new followers, Katrina Brown and Susan Renshaw. 

Today I have something a little different to share. 
I went to a mosaic workshop, run by Briony Machin, a couple of weeks ago and made this lovely festive wall hanging:

I really enjoyed making it and learned a lot. It is not, by any means, perfect, but I know what not to do next time!
The hardest part for me was cutting the glass tiles and trying not to fit too many into too small a space. 
I love the leaves and red berries, and the snowflakes are delightful! Briony's mum makes these and has a shop, Red Shed Ceramics, on Etsy.

I'm going to another workshop this Sunday and would like to make something ready for Springtime.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Well, this settles it, Carole. There is indeed nothing artistic you don't excel at! Gorgeous! I used to wish I was Laurie Mika back in the day. Kudos to you for all of that teeny tiny placings. I can no longer do that, I missed my chance, boohoo. Truly pretty piece, xoxo
