1) In those days it was the norm for girls to learn to sew.
2) Material was .25 to 50 cents a yard, which meant I could make nice clothes really cheep.
3)And I like to have things that are different than what other people have, to be unique.
These days instead of sewing I make decorative and functional pottery.
We had a pile of plain white ceramic tiles for our kitchen back splash. Since I still gravitate to different things that others don't have I put my artistic gift to some use. Using China paint I decided on a theme of birds, butterflies, insects and berries and started to paint.
After many hours and two firings in the kiln I had 10 unique tiles. That was last summer. Once winter came Dave had some time to put my tiles on the wall.
So what do you think of my back splash? I can't take it with me if we move, but I can make another one.
