Dare #12 and 106 degrees!

     When it is 106 degrees outside (in the shade), what can you do?  Why, tangle of course!  I really don't mind the heat - as long as the air conditioner keeps working, but Lakota really doesn't understand why we won't let him have but very brief play sessions and why we keep hitting him with the water hose when he's out.  This weather conspires against a black, very active pooch!
     The Bright Owl's dare was super this week and since I was (blissfully) inside, I have several offerings.  I played with color on one small tile.  I also tried to keep the tangles sort of related.  There are a lot to choose from on the same theme.
     For the next couple, I kept the traditional black and white.  The first one reminded me of eyes when I finished it, so I named it "Eyes".    I think of all of them it is my personal favorite.  It is so bold and that appeals to me.
    For the last one, back to the color.  You can guess where my inspiration came from!  I had been playing with sun faces in my Tangle-A-Day calendar and decided to do a zendala with one.   I also got to use DL Sunray, which is a tangle I haven't used before.
106 Degrees
     Hope you are having a great week!  I guess I can get back to working on my tangle organizer.  Anything that can be done inside!!


  1. I like them all; but I think "Eyes" is my favorite too. I feel for you and am glad you have AC. I personally can't stand extremely hot weather, it drains me of all energy.

  2. All your tiles here are beautiful! I love the first one, it's so pretty and delicate, and "Eyes" is fantastic too.

  3. these are great, cathy! hurray for high temps :) i like how you did the sun - i'm not familiar with DL sunray - i'll have to look it up, and i love the color! just beautiful!

  4. They are all very well done. I agree with you about the one with the eyes. Great.

  5. Wow Cathy, I see you enjoyed this template! All are really beautiful and inspirational, but I'm trying to decide if I like the delicate feel of the first or the heat of the last....

  6. Wow! You've been a busy and prolific tangler. They are all really great, too! And all so different. I love "106 degrees". It really captures the feeling of the heat wave!

  7. Love them all, but love that last one soooooo much.

  8. O Wow, this is high production work, but I like them very much.


Thank you for leaving me some sunshine! Your comments make my day!
