Serious crime spotted in Rothesay today. What sort of criminal would do such a thing?! Sacrilege!

It's easy just to rush past what looks like an ordinary doorway, but sometimes you just have to stop for a closer look...

Ok, so these aren't strictly Wally Tiles as they're on the floor, but as it's 200 years today since Alexander Thomson was born, I just had to include some of his. These are from the hall floor in Holmwood House

Probably my favourite set of tiles in Glasgow. I see these sometimes in a building just off George square. I think the boars head, insect, ship combo above a striped rope is underused and under appreciated! #glasgow #tiles #wallyclose #wallytiles #boar #boarhead #ship #boat #insect #fly #bown #tiling #ceramic #rope #stripe #squares #scottish #art #weird

Last of the 4 textile Wally Tiles pieced together. Now for the fun bit... Stitching!
#wip #workinprogress #textileart #appliqué #wallytiles #tenementtiles #roslynmitchelltextileart

2 Wally Tiles stuck in place, ready to be stitched. One more to cut and stick and I'll be ready to sew...
Not tonight though, Kiltwalking in Edinburgh tomorrow 🚶🏽‍♀️🎈

Still very much a work in progress but I love this jigsaw part of a project

Wally tiles drawn! Greenock on top (top left already finished). Kinning Park bottom right - huge thanks to @zanphee for letting me use her photo from the fantastic Tenement Tiles page on Twitter. Bottom left is my own design, based on my Art Nouveau Rose. I'm not entirely happy with it but will tweak it some more before the next stage. Tomorrow I get to play with fabric!

- Calling all Wally Tile close residents!* -

I need your help!

As you may know, I've been working on a Wally Tile project, and although I've not quite completed my '100 Days of Wally Tiles' (I'll get there eventually...), I'm wanting to make a few textile versions now.

My problem is, although I have LOTS of wally tile photos, very few of the tiles are square. And since I'm designing square prints, cards and coasters, that's a bit of a problem!

The square tiles I have are in the photo. I've already used the top left one and was thinking of using the centre one. And I had really loved the top middle one from Largs until it was pointed out that it looks like either a stingray, alien or the eye sockets and nostrils of a skull!! I can't unsee that now.

Do any of you lovely people lucky enough to have a wally close, have decorative square tiles? If you would be kind enough to send me a photo, I'd really appreciate it.

If I choose your tile, I'll send you a giclee print and a set of coasters to say thanks!
Thank you x *I know people don't actually reside in closes, but you know what I mean!

Textile Wally Tile #1 finished! 3 more to go. The originals will be framed and reproduced as cards, giclee prints and coasters. Can't wait to finish them all

The first stitch is about to go in... This is always the most nerve wracking bit!

I should have left half a hour ago...! Struggling to tear myself away from this, it's turning out so much better than I'd hoped
#wip #workinprogress #textilart #applique #wallytiles #tenementtiles #roslynmitchelltextileart

I'm stupidly excited about how this Wally Tile is turning out. Just a pity I have to leave work soon because I'm itching to finish it!

I started making this textile Wally Tile last year but didn't like the way it was turning out so hid it in a cupboard. Recently though I've had a bit of an epiphany and I'm trying a different method... Fingers crossed this works!

I'm sooooo behind with this, but I'll hopefully be able to catch up. I had big plans when I got my new dog that we'd go Wally Tile hunting together. Little did I know he'd be scared of streets and traffic! Slowly but surely getting there

Thank you @fhendrie for filling my newsfeed with Glasgow's rarest surviving beauties - the original tenement wally tile. Spotted these fab filigrees on my stroll to work today 👀#tenementtiles #glasgow #citystrolls #wallytiles

Many thanks to my son @kylemitchell1997 for doing some Wally Tile spotting while he was out on the election campaign trail 😊
(PS I'm a week behind on this, will catch up soon)

Many thanks to Helen Kendrick, author of @glasgowinteriors for sending me this photo from the book, taken by @neale.smith.photo

I can't take credit for this photo as a friend very kindly sent me this from her travels in Belfast today. The Crown Bar has been on my to-visit list since seeing photos of the wonderful tiles. (PS. I hope that's not chewing gum stuck to the top...)

After last night's heartbreaking events in Manchester, it seemed too trivial to post anything today. But I thought it would be fitting to mark day 50 with some Manchester tiles as a tribute to everyone affected.
Huge thanks to @adrianmcgarry for allowing me to use his fantastic image of the tiles on Manchester's 'The Peveril of the Peak' pub. How amazing are they? A bit too far for me to visit and photograph today but maybe one day...

Ian from @istprinting has very kindly sent me a photo of his wally close as the border tiles are the same as the Greenock ones I posted yesterday. This is only the second time I've seen 'doublers'. The only others I've seen before were border tiles in Greenock (again!) bottom right and Inverkip bottom left. Have you spotted any that match ones I've already posted?

Sharing get for another creative @roslynmitchelltextileartist I picked this up in local charity shop. Thought I'd share x #wallytiles

I've just struck gold on my Wally Tiles Quest! I think I've taken enough photos in the last 15 minutes to last me the next 58 days 😂

I had a wee visit to my friend Nicola's beautiful wally close tonight to see these beauties! These are definitely up there with my favourites. So nice to see a change from the usual green tiles and to finally capture some in my hometown
