The grands really wore me out. Three or four hours of grands is good, but more than that is too much for me. I do it anyway though.

Snow is melting and beginning Monday the temps are going up into the 50's and then into the low 60's that Thursday. Nice!! Yes, spring is coming!

No, I quit red hats almost five years ago. This is my monthly Christian Women's Club Brunch at the country club.

I wonder if I can find Mod Podge over here.....  I'll have to go craft shopping when I feel better!  Thanks

Are they all the same motif or do you use different colors... They're all the same motif, a leopard print. They all have a little different shading, though.

Is that fabric on the tile or photographs? - I used scrapbook paper. The paper I used for these was a little fuzzy on the printed part, so they turned out to have a sort of rough texture, but not so rough that things will tip. I think in the future, though, I'll just use smooth paper. I could use photographs, though. I might try that sometime, too.

Do you put felt underneath so they don't scratch the tables? - I put felt on these, but I think thin cork would be good, too.

It is a fun project, I just buy 4 X 4 inch tiles, put Mod Podge on them and put a 3 3/4" square of paper in the center of each, then cover with Mod Podge 2 or 3 more times, letting each coat dry well in between. Then I spray a clear sealant on them to make them water resistant (a well ventilated room is recommended - the stuff reeks!) and once that's good and dry (24 hours), I glue the felt on the backs. Very easy.
