Days 327 - 329 Time off!

     I am so loving this week and time off from work!  I needed this break.  I have been able to get some crafting done, a few things around the house, and spend time enjoying a new computer game that Ray and I are loving.  Yep, good break.  Not to mention sleeping in. 
     For Every Inchie Monday the word was crochet.  I had a great grandmother who crocheted all the time.  She did such beautiful work.  There would always be a special crocheted Christmas item for all her family.  A while back I tried my hand at tatting (crocheting lace like items).  I made some snowflakes for our tree, some doilies, and a few other small items.  It was fun but not what I would say relaxing.  Now I am not sure my eyesight would be able to do this.  Probably not.  But for my inchie I went to my old thread basket and found a scrap I had practiced on.  I cut it so it would fit my inchie and there you have it!
     It seems like the tangle hollibaugh has been a focus of a lot of challenges lately.  Diva wanted it to be the focus of her "back to basics" challenge this week. 
     Made by Joey's challenge #88 was to do a monotangle with the tangle Yuma.  I never used this one so much.  I watch one of Ellen Wolters's videos on drawing Yuma and actually found myself liking this tangle.
    Now I think I will head off and work on some shrink plastic ornaments for some Christmas presents.  I will show them to you later.  Take care and have a blessed day.

  1. You made a great success of Yuma, which I can't seem to make "work".I must try harder, I think. I love the vaguely organic pincushion for the Diva Challenge and your inchie reminds me that I am half way through making a crochet soft toy for my grandson and I really must get on with it.

  8. Sweet little inchie. I know what you mean about seeing those tiny stitches though. The other pieces are very nice as well. Glad you had a few days off!

  10. Very nice tangle challenges! The pops of green on your Yuma add so much to the overall look, I must remember that it doesn't always take much colour to add a lot of impact!
