Challenge #77

        For this week's challenge by The Diva, we had to use the tangle "Fiore di Pietro" or Peter's flower.  This is going to be used to put in a book for a memorial to Rho Densmore's brother-in-law.  Rho, your family has my prayers and I would be honored for you to use my tiles in your book.  What a lovely and thoughtful thing to do for your family.
      I love this tangle.  At first it was a bit difficult, but once I got to playing with it the more comfortable I became.   I tried to "say" something with the first tile.  I chose facets for the only other tangle because there are many facets to a person and their relationship to others.  Those facets are how and why we connect with others.  Even though the tangle is named Peter's flower, it reminds me of stars.  So I wanted this tile to be representative of the stars and heavens.  Ah well, I know what I wanted to say even if I am not doing a very good job of making it clear to others.
     The next tile is simply a flower garden.  Sort of a garden walkway to contain Peter's flowers.  At first I didn't like how I let them slip off the tile, but now I feel differently.  There isn't an end to the garden, it keeps on going even if we can't see where it goes.  More philosophy, I guess.

  1. Beautiful tiles, both of them Cathy. I know what you mean about this pattern reminding you of stars because it's the same for me. I love your garden too - especially the way it slips off the page into the unknown......

  2. They are both so beautifully appropriate for the memorial. And the verbal description is just as lovely; and you certainly executed it well.

  3. I think that having the facets connected that way is genius! Way cool. And Peter's garden is a soothingly beautiful place!
