Days 330 - 333

     Day 330 and the day before Thanksgiving.  It is just my brother and I but we still enjoy a rather nice "feast".  I like to cook a bit more than usual so I can do left overs as much as possible.   When we were younger and lived in North Carolina, we had lots of family.  My grandmother, aunt and mom cooked for hours (probably days).  Nannie's pecan pie.  Mama's special potato salad.  Oh my.  Such a bounty of good food and the warm feeling of being surrounded by people who loved you.  I was very fortunate to have grown up when and where I did.  Adele Bruno's string challenge was to keep it simple and use two tangles, gourdeous and lichen.  Then to use the tile to reflect on someone or something that you were thankful for.  I am most thankful for my brother.  He is my best friend and favorite person to be with.  I have been blessed with him.
     Thanksgiving and day 331!  The casserole is in the oven.   The smells are so good.  And I have a bit to tangle!  I was so happy to see the two challenges by Susy Mosh were up.  I love her challenges.  For That's New To Me #46 we had to use the tangle "points and curves" and a new (to us) tangle that begins with the letter x.  I used a new tangle called "x".  Then I also added some xplode and xplo-zen.  It was sort of empty so I added some color.
    The second challenge is the Tangle Me 3.  We had to use points and curves again for a monotangle.  I almost didn't do this one because I wasn't sure I wanted to play around with that tangle again.  Glad I did though because I liked it much better this time.
     Square One's facebook challenge was to use the tangle steps.  I went and watch Helen Williams's show how to do this in her video.  That helped.  Here is day 332.
     Diane Clancy and working on this blog for day 333.  I chose to use hi-c's, waterslide and nzeppel for her HWN challenge. 
     I think I will take a few minutes and play around with drawing the "gems" that are so popular on a facebook site I go to.  They are so beautiful.  I suppose tomorrow I will spend the day doing some school work.  Then it is back to work on Monday.  I am excited about seeing my kids and hearing about their break.  I hope all goes well with everything else.  I have had a battle with the anxiety I felt, but feel a bit stronger now than I did.  Take care and thanks for dropping by.  Hope your day is filled with blessings!!


  1. What a great tribute to your brother! I like all, but will only say something about the last one: I love this symmetry in it!
    Take care.

  2. Cathy, this is a wonderful set of tiles!! Your H-W-N is an interesting mix of organic and geometric - nice job!! :) I like what you have done with the Points and Curves - my Tangle Me 3 isn't published yet but we had some similar feelings about doing them. Your Square One is fabulous!! Thank you for joining in!!
