Days 244 - 250! Seven days of creativity!

    I was so happy to get a small little post done last time.  So easy to write, so easy to link up . . .  I had great plans to do each day this week.  See where that went, don't ya?  School work just took over.  I took a few moments each day to draw, but taking the time to scan, write and link to challenges was just too much.  Maybe this week I will do better.  Either way, guys, it is going to be a long post, sorry!
     Day 244 - The Tangle Me 3 challenge (#11) was to use the tangle ionic.  I had it in my notebook, but never really played much with it.  It just didn't appeal to me.  I never saw where I could make it fit.  But that is what a challenge is all about, isn't it?  After an extremely rough day at school, I needed some tangle time so I persevered.  Know what?  I really like this tile. 
     Day 245 - Adele Bruno's string challenge #108 was an interesting string this week.  I used printemps, lanie, and cubine.  I always love the 3D effect of cubine.
     Day 246 - This tangle - maryhill - fascinates me.  I love the way merely using straight lines can produce such a different effect.  It is usually worked in a circle, but I decided to try filling the whole tile with it.  This was for Made by Joey #76. 
     Day 247 - Open House tonight at school.  I had a huge parent turn out.  I always love to meet the parents and touch base with them.  However I came home a bit tired.  Got a new book in mail which perked me up some, Suzanne McNeil's Tangle Book #11.  I got to use the tangle ideas in the book for my challenge for Diane Clancy's alphabet challenge, UBJ.  I used unyun, up and across, burst, and japonica.
     Day 248 - I finally came up with an idea for Diva's challenge to use the new tangle zenith.  I love the tangle and have used quite a bit.  Here it is with heart divided and fescu.
     Day 249 - Square One's weekly challenge was to use the tangle inapod.  Since I had recently done a tile featuring that one, I almost didn't play along.  I decided to to just keep it simple.
     Day 250 - I put the finishing touches on this past week's hodge podge of tangles.  I lined off my pages to resemble a quilt and throughout the week I add tangles I might use in challenges.  Sometimes I just add ones for fun.  So for today's creativity exercise, I finished this page (about two boxes really) and now I will get creative with lesson plans!  Oh fun!
     I hope you are having a very blessed day!  Thank you so much for each and every comment you leave - I love hearing from you!


  1. All of these are good work. I love your TM3 tile! Great color. Thanks for being part of the TM3 challenge!

  2. Excellent ionic tile, I too never managed to make it fit anywhere before. The colours you chose are nice and subtle. Clever idea with your quilt of tangles.

  3. These are all so lovely. Thanks for participating in the Maryhill Monotangle. I also love your quilt of tangles, it creates a very neat effect!
