“My week in mosaics”

One day at the Park…

RonsPhotos-001

several days at the sewing machine!

I hope you’ve had a good week!

Mine has been wonderful!

I’ll reveal some of my sewing projects soon!

Bags-001

I still have some ‘tweaking’ to do!

Are you a perfectionist? Do you ‘tweak’?

I’m joining Mary at the dear little red house

for Mosaic Monday! Hope you’ll join us, too!

I am a tweaker, but by no means a perfectionist, most of my projects have mistakes that only I know about. Lovely mosaic.

I love your pretty flowers, a beautiful mosaic. I am no way perfect and I admit I tend to rush different jobs. Great post, have a wonderful week!

Beautiful mosaics!!! I do tend to tweak things but wouldn't describle myself as a perfecionist!

Lovely mosaics. I'm so much of a perfectionist that I don't attempt sewing and crafts LOL! Truth is, I'm lousy at it. Your projects look lovely...

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Love the flowers...so pretty! hugs, LInda

I confess, I am a tweeker!

Sewing? I can't wait to see what you've been up to. I'm sure it will be great. Tweaking - yes I do all the time. Have a wonderful week!
Hugs,
Pat

Carol @ Always Thyme to Cook said...

Such beautiful flowers. Looking forward to seeing more of your lovely projects.

Low Tide High Style said...

Looks like you've been busy! And I am not a tweaker really, I just don't have the time. I'm more of a "throw it together and hope for the best!" Probably not the best way to be...

I'm not a tweaker. I have enough trouble getting started and finished.
Hugs,

Lavender Cottage said...

I love the pink flowers you found at the park, and yes, the weather has been fabulous since we've been down.
I am definitely a tweaker, drive myself crazy at times and I'm looking forward to seeing what you've sewn.

That pretty, lacy mosaic is so feminine and artistic.

Lorrie said...

I'm definitely a tweaker. Looking forward to seeing what you created with your sewing machine.

And I'm envious of those pretty flowers. We have to wait a bit to get some of those around here.

Pondside said...

Whatever it is you're making, it must be very sweet and feminine! I'm not a perfectionist and not a great 'tweaker'. I get tired of working on a project and if I haven't done it well it will probably languish in the work basket.

My Little Home and Garden said...

It's nice to see all of those pink blooms. I'll have to come back to see your sewing projects!

Mary said...

Oh, thank you for those beautiful pink blooms! Just what I need to see! Am I a tweaker? I guess I will go back to old photos and edit them in a new way... does that count as tweaking? ;) Thanks for sharing at MM> :) xoxo

BECKY said...

Oh yes, I tweak my writing, sometimes until I'm half nutty! Don't do that to yourself! :)
Can't wait to see what lovely things you're making!

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

I look forward to seeing your projects. Pretty mosaics. you have had a great weekend, my friend!

I am a terrible "tweaker" when it comes to certain paintings and my Litrary Friday posts.

xo,
RJ

Teresa said...

Beautiful mosaics. I love the flowers. The lace and buttons are so pretty. :-)

Elaine said...

Looks like a some pretty sewing projects. The rhododendrons are pretty..

Jann Olson said...

Love the pinks! Whatever you are doing is looking pretty darn good. Yes, I'm a tweeker!
Hugs,
Jann

Vee said...

I tweak. I'm a perfectionist who is too lazy to do perfect work hence my dilemma. You're making me quite curious!

Kaybe said...

I'm a big time tweaker. Hindsight is always 20/20. I see someone else is taking advantage of the premium piknik before it goes away ;)

Teacup-In-The-Garden said...

A wonderful mosaic! Thanks for sharing!
Have a great week,
Markus

Lilybets said...

Your sping pictures are gorgeus !Yes,I'm a perfectionist,but I' not able to tweak !My boyfriend is going to spend a week in USA, Chicago, next week !I would like so much to be with him,but it's too expensive!
:-(

Mary said...

Love the bits of lace and embroidery from your sewing projects! I'm definitely a tweaker :)

Della said...

Yep! I'm a tweaker. Things must be perfect before I can call them complete! Can't wait to see what you've done with the lace and fabric flowers!
Hugs!

Kim K. said...

Can't wait to see more! That lace mixed with the fabric flower is just gorgeous.

lila said...

Love the lace photo collage! We just had our 39th anniversary....the "lace" anniversary.
My hubby had jokingly guessed that it might be the "rust" anniversary.
So I am thinking of making an assemblage on canvas of some rusty items and lace....
Have a good week....can't wait to see what you have sewn!

michelle said...

Beautiful photos Diane. I am a tweaker too, always doing something to anything. :) I can't wait to see what you have been doing. :)

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

You've been busy...looks nice.

Not really a tweaker, more of a "fine it's done kind of girl."

JG said...

Only I see my sewing mistakes. When you "make" items no one else sees the errors. Sewing is GREAT and FUN! Those are pretty flowers!

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Looks like whatever you are making is very feminine! Love that flower in the middle right.

Yes, I am a tweaker - but I have all of my teeth. :)

Have a lovely day,
Becky

Judy Bigg said...

Lovely post, your sewing looks very interesting. Hope you post about it. Yes, I am a tweaker, I often come back to a project a few hours later or the next day and tweak it a little more. Just the way we are!! I like tweaking my projects, makes me feel good just to do just a little bit more to it. Thanks.

Gardening in a Sandbox said...

Some very pretty creations in your mosaic. Looks lovely. V

(Queenmothermamaw) Peggy said...

Love the flower mosaics. I have been tweaking my Feb ATC theme Alice in Wonderland for 3 weeks now. Just can't get what I want. I revert back to my crochet where I can do a for sure job.
