Days 89 - 91

      Our spring weather is so nice!  It looks as though I am going to have an entire vacation of lovely weather.   Yahoo!  Lakota is definitely glad for some outdoor time.  He is very well behaved indoors, but when you are 110 pounds you need some run and play time.  I have been enjoying this time to draw and play around on the computer.  I know it will end all too soon and then state testing will begin for my classroom - whew!

 Day 89

     For Suzy Mosh's New to Me tangle, we had to use new tangles that began with the letter L.  I chose to use lanie, luna, and lirik.  Definitely some newbies for me.  I also put a dash of color to help it along.

Day 90

     Diva's challenge was to use "flux".  I sort of feel in flux right now personally.  A bit tossed by the waves, if you will.  I am sure it will all pass and I try hard to remain strong, but sometimes . . .   Anyway, I didn't mean for this tile to be a monotangle, but it just sort of worked out that way.  Funny how sometimes a tile can have a mind of its own and take you places you weren't planning.  Ever have that happen to you?

Day 91

     The challenge at Made By Joey was to use the tangle "dust bunny".  I have to admit I almost decided not to do this one.  I am not fond of that tangle.  I am not sure why, it just doesn't appeal to me.  Well, it didn't.  Now I feel a bit differently.  My dust bunnies became flowers.  I colored the background in black and added some other things.  In the end, I found myself liking it fairly well.  I won't use it a lot, but I am glad I did the challenge.
    I love the challenges I participate in.  I know it is a lot of work for the admins, but they certainly make my day.  It gives me a focus when I need one.  Hope you have a great day and thanks for dropping by! 


  1. Love the colors you chose for your dust bunnies!

  2. Really nice tiles today! They DO each seem to have their own our pets. I know what you mean about how when you are working tnagles evolve as if they have a mind of their own.

  3. I also love these challenges for making me use tangles I might never have used otherwise. And for getting me going on days where all I see is blank paper...

    Your dust bunnies are great! The whole tile is oozing spring!

  4. Wonderful tiles. I often have my tiles go in a direction I didn't plan on or visualize. Sometimes I like the result, sometimes I don't. Kind of like life. Kind of like the challenges. Ahh, isn't life grand.

  5. the colors on your L tile are perfect! so pretty and delicate.
    Heh...all three tiles are full of plant life! hahaha. nice work

  6. oh, Dakota must be so pleased that he can go out now and run :-) Love your tiles!

  7. I love your Made by Joey tile! It's very pretty. I also like the color added to the New to Me tile. Thanks for being part of the challenge this week!

  8. Lovely! Your first Flux tile looks like an Easter cross, but the second one with dust bunny is just plain fun. Don't you love how that pattern just livens up everything?

  9. Great tiles. I love your flux version, you made it with assuming the negative space being a shape too (just like we do with triple) I love that interpretation of the challenge.

  10. All 3 of these are lovely!! :) Dust Bunny is so colorful! :) Your New to Me L is elegant and your Flux is pretty!! :)

    My friend Carolien and I are starting a new weekly challenge you might like. It starts Wed. Details at

  11. I like how you have used the dust bunnies in the corners and how you have coloured the whole piece. Your flux is beautiful as well!
    Thanks for linking up
