Hit the local Restore. Various tile and stone for $.25 each. Playing around and getting various results. A few of these took a LONG time for the finished product. (When you get a number that looks impossibly low, look again. It may be hours and minutes rather than minutes and seconds.)
Got to get more felt, but working on felting these with my (new) hot glue gun so that the counter/etc is protected from the back of the tiles. Each of these is inspired by a member of the family.
