Brick Experiment #2

Actually, 2, #3,#4 and #5 (I think).  Didn't have much luck this weekend with the bricks.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong...I was not even able to reproduce the stone sample I did earlier!  Having a rough time, I guess.  I am going to buy some commercial gesso and see if that makes a difference.  Still haven't discovered the ultimate scribing tool, but a mini, standard screwdriver proved to be the strongest contender, with the meat thermometer a close second.  

Winter blues settling in...trying to stay optimistic but all I want to do lately is devour carbs and sleep.... 

Here's my house from summer.  How many months til June?

email the "Guys from Texas". They will tell you exactly what works best. They are very generous about sharing such knowledge. They are also the best builders in the USA of that style of building.

Gorgeous garden! I wish you'd come landscape my yard - it is sprawling and we are constantly struggling to keep the wilds from taking over!
