Clean slate

Over at Puns R Us (AKA my decorating blog), I've posted "What's it all a-grout?"--my description of a combo crafting/decorating project I recently finished. I thought I'd cross=post, under the assumption that many knitters are also interested in other crafts. (True?) Anyway, this cool slate tiled plant stand is my first stab at tiling and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. I'm hoping it will be the beginning of a long love affair with mosaics. I love the feel of tile, the patterns and colors. And it seems there are lots of surfaces that are screaming for a little deocration with pieces of tile, china, glass, etc. The only downside: these supplies are a lot heavier and bulkier to store than yarn.
