Kitchen up date

For my piece for OWOH, I have decided to re-visit Hundertwasser.   Instead of just using fabric and stitch, this time I will be making it with mixed media.  So far I have used paper from the Wall Street Journal and an old book, scrim, Dyna-Flo paints, Crafty Notions Colour Sprays as well as fabric and thread. A  poisoned thumb has slowed me down a bit today, and now I have lanced it, I hope that it will be easier to hold my needle tomorrow.
Hubby has finished tiling the wall behind the cooker and will be grouting it next weekend.  I am happy with my choice of tiles, you never know when you see a small sample, how it will look when it is on the wall.

Lovely tiles, and how lucky you are to have a handy DIY hubby. I hope you like cleaning, I love the effect of my stainless steel tiles but the are HIGH maintenance. Worth it though!!!

Oh dear...take care of that thumb..perhaps a few soaks in some warm Epson salts will help take the infection out.

Love your OWOH piece...I need to get started on mine...have all the materials out..just need to put them all together.

The kitchen is looking AWESOME!!

Hugs,
