Tile and Wood

The day was much chillier but it was dry and a good day to work on the chimney!  I finished the first side and even began work on the other;  what a good feeling!  It looks so good with the grout--it has been several years without it, if you can believe it. 
 Very unlike me to begin and not finish a project.  
But it is happening now and that is what counts!  
 I cleaned the house-a really deep clean and for a reward (after a piece of chocolate) I worked at finding a way to try and save that cracked bowl.  Well, it almost beat me but I made it shorter-removing the cracked inch and then another crack opened here on the side.  I sanded and rounded it out after breaking out the loose bit and applied the sealing spray and voila!  
It is a cute little 4 x 4" artsy bowl!

After church today (in person and I wore the new cardigan!) I will work some more on the chimney and then enjoy a nap!


  1. A day of major accomplishments! Enjoy your rest.

  2. The chimney looks great! I wouldn’t have guessed the difference would be very noticeable, but it really pops now! The bowl is lovely...the natural wood is so pretty that I think it would be almost impossible to have a finished piece that isn’t beautiful.

  3. that's a great bowl for collecting random doodads before they get lost.

  4. Very nice save on that sweet little bowl and the grouting looks great! I'm glad you were able to wear your cardigan to church. Our governor has still limited the churches to 10% capacity and no singing at all. So we are still watching online which I am very, very grateful for.
    Have a lovely day my friend.

  5. It would make an incredible yarn bowl, it is gorgeous!

 I've brought out the oldest afghan, found my place and began the 6" of border needed to complete the pattern.  There are more than...
