I love the glass/tile work!!! Absolutely wonderful. - It's not the first time you done this is it?

I better find a way to block your thread from my wife - she'll be wanting me to tear off the roof of our oven so she can do a similar thing.

Really nice work!!

Christo

Frances,
I have been away for awile but my curiosity brought me back to the forum and straight to Switzerland.
Thanks for the pics...I must admit that I didn't read all the posts....but I did look at the pictures.
So amazing!

I, again, propose a WFO "Hall Of Fame".

All in favor?

Like Dusty - whenever I log onto the forum, Switzerland is the first place I visit and I'm never disappointed! Stellar job!!

So ... how's that housework coming along ?
Don't worry, you're not the only one who hears such things .

And Elizabeth, with mine at 16 & 18, I hear you about those socks, shoes and jackets, not to mention dirty plates and glasses - everywhere!! Then there's the cleaned out fridge and missing telephones & TV remotes. Yes, Frances, enjoy them while they're young.

BTW, when they get old enough & leave home, they'll remember your oven and your cooking - not your cleaning.

Sucks, huh Sarah? Run your buns off every day cleaning up behind the little monsters and they never even notice. My new life......

Its nice to know we're all in the same boat... I don't know what my lot will get up to once they're older, but shoes, jackets, reprogrammed and lost remotes and telephones, dirty plates and glasses and half eaten apples and bananas ALL over the place... they already figure prominently in my life.

I must say in defence of my wonderful husband that we share the housework, so he's quite entitled to grumble if I don't do my bit...

I like what you said about construction work Elizabeth. A wall stays done. I wouldn't survive if I didn't make something solid and lasting from time to time.

Good point, thats what I always tell myself. I imagine my son in about 20 years time telling his wife-to-be: My mother baked all her own bread... Ha ha, she'll hate my guts!

Not hate... resent. You'll be a hard act to follow.

But I finally got back out there, after tons of rain etc.

Wow, that just looks so cool! I wish you great weather so you can continue creating and we can continue enjoying your progress. I'm waiting for the full rainbow effect when it's all done - it will be spectacular!
