Sunday, day 228 - I spent most of today doing school planning. It is a good thing I really love to do that because it dominates my day. I did take a few minutes to do my inchie. As I said, I can't leave this challenge out. It is so simple and so much fun. The word was lamp. I wish the scan showed how pretty and sparkly this turned out. Trust me, it sparkles.
Monday, day 229 - Made by Joey's challenge is to use the tangle, kozy. I put it in my notebook ages ago, but never really used it. I had some fun with it this afternoon while supper cooked. I used TanglePatterns.com's string #170 to tangle on. Not really complicated, however it was fun.
Tuesday, day 230 - Okay, I love technology. I love the fact that my teaching career made it to some of the cool things we can now use. But when you spend half (or more) of a day battling internet issues, machines that won't hook up, and getting no help whatsoever, give me a chalkboard and some dusty old chalk. Seriously. It has been one major headache. And to top it off, I simple had to give up and quit because I could not solve the problem. With no one to help me, I was out of luck. Yep. I am frustrated. I needed to work on some MAJOR zen. This piece is not for any challenge. It is just for my sanity. It is so I won't hurt someone! (smile).
Wednesday, day 231 - Today was better. I didn't use anything more high tech than a stapler! I won't do that every day, but hey, I was determined to have a better day. This afternoon I worked on the New to Me challenge (Suzy Mosh). Great challenge. We had to use a new tangle that begins with the letter U and a tangle or two by Jane Monk. I chose to use a tangle called umbra and also trimonds by Jane Monk. Then I just felt like some coloring . . .
Thursday, day 232 - It has been a very rainy week. Which we needed badly. However rainy day recesses are rough. The kids want to be outside so much. I tangled a bit after supper this evening. I worked on the Diane Clancy challenge. The letters we had to use were KAT. I went with two rather unfamiliar tangles - axlexa and ta-da. They are ones I have very limited use of. Then finished up with one of my favorite go-to tangles - keeko. I have to say I am not too fond of this tile. First I made a "boo-boo" and had to add some black to cover a spot. Then the tangles themselves don't' seem to work so well together. Wish I had more time this evening to do it over but I will just keep repeating "there are no mistakes"!
Friday, day 233 - The Suzy Mosh Tangle Me 3 challenge was to use the tangle linq in three different ways.
Saturday, day 234 - Margaret Bremner has a tangle based on those huge wind generators called windfarm. This was our tangle to use for Square One challenge. I added some tipple and betweed.
Sunday, day 235 - Again?? I nearly missed Adele Bruno's string challenge! How could I? It is one of my favorites. I guess I just got so busy with school work this week, I forgot to check. Hope this isn't too late to make her list, but here goes anyway.
I know this looks like a ton of art work. It really is just 15 - 30 minutes each evening. Not long, but some needed relaxing time. Thank you for dropping by! Have a wonderful day!
