Well, she moves down to a very chilly basement and starts a mosaic project
This is going to be the table top for a serving trolley/butcher’s bench – you know the kind everyone bought from Ikea about 10 years ago.
This is the inspiration. I’m pleased to know that this is going to result in “sophisticated home style”!
And here are some teeny tiny pieces of mosaic which hopefully will all find a room in this project.
Mosaic is almost like quilting: you cut up bits of tile and then assemble them together again.
But the big advantage is that once the piecing is done, the project needs no quilting (which to my mind is the worst part of making a quilt) but only grouting which is done in no time at all.
What do you do when, for one reason or another, you can’t sew?
