Thank you Travis!

Well people, this is it... It is finished, completed, done, ended. Every last little white bit is coverd with little coloured bits.

Well, appart from the chimney roof thingy that is, still wondering what to do there.

Anyway, here are some pics of the final bits of mosaic...

This is the last little bit which I finally did this morning after staring at it aprihensively for three days... I'll really feel a bit lost without an oven to work on.

Frances, it is absolutely beautiful. I love the way the front looks sort of flame-like.

Did some of the mosaic escape into the neighbor's yard? In the blimp shot I see stripes next door!

And I see what can occupy your time next. An unfinished barbeque. Add a tandoori oven and you're set! Just think of the mosaic potential... Too bad you already have a non-ugly blue jug to put your peels in. I still have to go rescue the ugly yellow one from the junk shop. Then I have to find old plates to tile it with... Since winter is really, truly here (at least for the next couple of weeks) I can't do any more with the oven. It'll have to wait until spring to be really finished.

Absolutely spectacular, Frances! Congratulations!

My five year old daughter is VERY appreciative as well. As the pictures came up, she jumped and clapped her hands, and said, "Cool! Mommy, let's cover our oven in colors and sparkles, too!" I have a lot to live up to, now.

I really cracked up when I saw the aerial pix! Now if only I could get a view from a small dog's perspective....
