Days 170 - 173

     Was it only a few months ago I was complaining about the cold?  Well, now it is the heat!  Let's face it, I don't do extremes.  Give me a climate of constant spring.  Of course, when it is this hot staying inside and crafting is the best solution.  (Actually, I would rather do that any day no matter the temp).
     Day 170 was Friday and the day I get the Square One Facebook challenge.  This week it was to use the tangle arukas.  Just used that a few days ago for a challenge.  Ah well.  Good practice I suppose.  This time I went with one of the arukas and made the lines curvy.  Quite a difference.
     For day 171 I worked on my inchie.  The great thing about that challenge is that the words are posted a year in advance and you could actually do the whole year if you chose.  Yeah, right.  There are times I feel like I am rushing to get one done.  Oh well, it is possible.  Just not for me.  The word this week was apple.
     I am working on ATC's for a swap.  I finished up four of those for day 172.  I am having a lot of fun playing with those and adding just a touch of color for each.  This makes 12 of the 21 I need to get done.  Fortunately they are pretty quick to do.

     The New to Me challenge asked us to use a new tangle with the letter F.  I chose three tangles - farling, facade, and footlites.  Footlites was the only one that was not new.  I have used it before.  Unfortunately my shading got a bit more that smudgy. 
     I worked on the challenge for Diane's challenge.  The letters were F, M, and T.  So having discovered the tangle farling yesterday, I decided to use it again today (day 173) along with muzaky and tripoli. 
     That wraps up the last four days.  Now if I don't get this blog posted and linked up to all those places, I won't have any time to do any work for today!  Have a blessed day!

  9. Cathy, you have done some beautiful work in spite of or because of the heat. The air is thick here in the desert--it's our rainy season, but we haven't gotten the rains yet, just the humidity. Your tangle choices are great, a bunch I'm not familiar with, YET. Have a brilliant day! c
