    Amma said she would like to see my new tiles, so here they are. :D
    I forgot to take the 'before firing' pics this time - oh well. :wink:
    We're having our "Richard Hibbard Chevrolet 2nd Annual Independence Day Celebration Car Show & Craft/Vendor Show" this Saturday & I'm manning the booth for my quilt guild, selling tickets for our current Opportunity Quilt. Since we have a whole booth space, I'm going to have these for sale, along with a few of the criss-cross coasters. If I don't sell them, guess what my family will be getting for Christmas this year? lol
    .


    My friend MaryAnn who owns the ceramics shop suggested I do one with a patriotic background since it is our "Independence Day Celebration". I like the way it came out - the bkgrd is sponged on.

    They are about 6" across.
    .


    When I was painting this one, and after the first firing, I was afraid it looked dirty compared to the others with their white tummies. But after the glazing, I am very happy with it!

    No Loretta, I don't think I do - I'll have to google them. :D

    I forgot to tell my 'story' about these too...
    I had started work on them on a Saturday - had parts of all 4 done in one session. But when I went on Monday to finish them up, including doing the black outlines, much to my dismay, my close-up/reading glasses were NOT in my purse! So I squinted a LOT & went slow...LOL I re-traced my steps over the weekend, called & even stopped by the restaurant I had lunch w/my friend, no glasses. Called the grocery store, no glasses. Had Sara check her car, I checked my car - NO GLASSES!! Looked all around the floor by my usual chair, all over the house...all week long, no glasses. UGH!!! I'm about ready to run over to WalMart to get a new pair....and find them under that pile of pillow cases that fell out of the linen cupboard onto me & I set on the ironing board! Sheesh!! LOL

    Your trivets are so nice!

    Before I got my bifocals I had reading glasses all over the house, the car, at friends houses, in my guild's closet, in every tote and sewing bag. I am still finding them around everywhere. I rarely left the drug store without a new pair. DH is the same way. He has filled up a bucket with his. He lays them down and forgets them. I know he has left a pair on every hardware and sporting goods counter in town. I guess that is why the eye dr. said no need for prescriptions buy the readers, you'll lose a lot of them. :D

    Problem is, mine aren't the cheap readers! My eyes are opposites, so those won't work for me. It would've been between $100 - $200 to get another pair - ICK! Moot point now tho', thank goodness!! LOL

    Thank you Amma! I'm beginning to feel a little more confident in my painting too. It's a lot of fun to do. :D

    Ooohhhh Sue! I LOVE them! Would shipping costs be prohibitive to France if I bought one? I'd pay OF COURSE! What do you think?

    Your trivets are so sweet - would love to know how much they are too & if you are prepared to ship to the UK?

    What I love about them are their simplicity--and the contentment of the cat. I think these would sell like hot cakes to cat lovers. :D

    These are so adorable. I hope you sold a lot of them at your Open House yesterday. (I was going to pop by and see you, but the day got away from me.) Anywhoo - these are really cute trivets - love the cat ones.

    It was a hot - mid-90s - but breezy day yesterday. Alas, no cat lovers made it to our booth. We did sell some tickets on our Op. Quilt, so that was good, and my friend sold a few of her bags...practically as we were packing up! I even remembered to put sun screen on, except for the back of my neck...ugh. But even tho' I didn't sell any there, we did have fun - and we were very close to the SnowCone trailer too - yum!! :D
