As my lighthouse project has come to an end my mind is turning to another mosaic adventure. I have my eye on the rather ugly and dilapidated chest of drawers in the spare room and am thinking of poshing it up by painting it and adding tiles to the top. Not a small project I realise but one that, when finished, will potentially produce an heirloom piece of furniture provided it doesn't fall apart under the extra weight of the mosaic tiles.
I've turned to my bookmarks on my laptop for inspiration and have been looking in the fabric section. 'Dill Blossom' is a textile that I've fallen in love with but haven't been successful in sourcing enough to send to Mama Lovelygrey to make the long fishtail skirt that I'd like. But I wonder whether all those round shapes and fine lines will stretch me beyond my current mosaicing expertise level. So, I'm showing uncharacteristic restraint and have therefore decided against this as a design source.
So lots to consider and ideas continue to roll around in my head. This is certainly not a quick and dirty project so it's one where I'll undoubtedly be providing progress updates over the next few months.
