Days 82 and 83

     Not feeling any better right now, but the beauty of tangling is I can sit and very quietly draw.  And should I have to dash from the room, I cap the pen.  There are no paints to put away or anything like that.  That is nice.  Plus it is very relaxing when I definitely need that.  
     Day 82 was a challenge (yesterday's work) for the New to Me website by Suzy Mosh.  We had to use tangles, or at least one new tangle that began with the letter O.  I try to use all new tangle with that letter. So far I have been able to do that.  For that tile I chose opera, ozzie, and oola.  All three were new and lots of fun to draw.
     The Diva's challenge was what I worked on this morning.  We had to use a spiral string.  I love the looks of that type of string, but have a lot trouble getting it to be "right".   I started to go over to Michelle Beauchamp's site to look at some of her work, because in my opinion she is number one with spiral strings.  I decided that I really did not want too much influence on what I might do.  Now that I am finished though I may try another one after looking at her work. 
Day 82
Day 83
    I think I will finish sipping this water and then take a nap.  My goal is to be at school tomorrow.  Probably only a teacher would understand this, but it is more work to be absent than to go in.  Trying to find a sub last night was ridiculous.  I must have called 20 people!  Thanks for dropping by and I hope you are having a wonderful day.


  1. Nice tiles! Good pattern choices. Thanks for being part of the challenge this week!

  2. J'aime bien le choix des motifs.
    I like the patterns choice.

  3. I do hope you are a bit (or better: a lot) better now. Your spiral is beautiful!

  4. I love the tipples dangling from the end of the spiral! Sending virtual chicken soup and hoping you feel better :-)

  5. I participated in the Diva's spiral string challenge. I think your composition is very elegant.

  6. these both look lovely. Sorry you're not feeling well, and yes it is wonderful to have something relaxing and productive to do when you're down.

  7. Hope you are feeling better! Both nice tiles!


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