-Tarjotinpöytä ja lisää mosaiikkitöitä +ohjeita
-Tray table and some more mosaic works +tutorials

We have had some spring showers today.
Well, actually just one shower...
It started in the morning and it haven't stopped yet.
Because the circumstances outside were quite cool and wet  I stayed in and
 I spent my day finishing the mosaic works I started last Sunday at the Miniclub.
I showed this flower mosaic in my previous post.
I wasn't sure what I was going to make of it but then I saw
And TaDaah... I made a tray table!
 Make a visit to Caroline's beautiful blog and find all the measurements.
I have mesured just with my wonky eyeballs. 
You know... inches are not for me. :D

After the tray table was done
I decided to make a pair for the chair I made at the club earlier.

 I cut aprox 3 mm stripes from paint sample strips and then cut them into squares.
 I spread some glue on to a small area.
Then with a toothpick I placed 'tiles' one by one on to the seat shaped cardboard.
It was a bit difficult to get a photo of this step.
I had a toothpick in my other hand and mobile in the other.
I was alone at home so there was no help available for this.
Hmm, well I wasn't exactly alone.
Our Turtle was sleeping in his shell and the cat...
 wasn't in a very helpful mood either. :D
 But I got the chair done.
Here I'm watching the varnish to dry.
Yes, and I had a cup of coffee too.
 Here are all my mosaic works.
Though the mosaics are just cardboard pieces 
I think the results turned out quite nice.
Soon April will turn to May.
I am happy to tell that my Marigolds are still alive and they are doing well.
 A week ago I planted part of the sprouts to bigger pots.
There were so many that I run out of pots.
 This weekend I planted the rest of the Marigolds and 
put some Sunflower seeds to the soil.
Let's see how all these will succeed.

 I wish a happy spring week to all of you!
Thank you so much for all the lovely comments to my posts. 
Also, thank you for your patience with my English, Finnish and with the google-translator!

  10. Hahahahaha, Piikko, that picture of your cat Neko is so lovely, yes, he is a great 'help', NOT ;O!! But I absolutely love your miniature mosaic works on the tray table and the chair, I love those colors too :D!
    And if the seedlings of your sunflowers won't grow, you always have your gorgeous sunflower on the tray table ;)! I like your idea of recycling cartons of milk(?) as a planter for seedlings! My daughter really has green fingers, every plant will grow and she always can use new planters, so I think I'll share this idea with her, okay?
    I'm very glad that this time I didn't have to struggle with the Finnish language, or the annoying translator for reading your blog post, it was all very clear to me, so THANK YOU :D!
    Hugs, Ilona
