One More Week - OUCH!

   One week from today I will not be sitting in my comfy clothes and playing on my computer, though truthfully, I was working on my second math unit.  I will not have gotten up at 10 and played fetch in the back yard.  I will not have done those restful things I love so much.  I will have spent the day moving furniture and cleaning my dust filled classroom.  Ah well, I am blessed to have a job I do love so much even if I really do wish it could start at 10, okay 9 at least.  Anything but 6!!!
     Every Inchie Monday's word was spiral.  (Like my summer spiraling away - alright, I will stop whining)  I kept mine simple - just a spiral. 

      Diane Clancy had us use the letters U#X to find tangles.  I chose to use xadent, up and across, xenso, 4 corners and 100.  I also used the string #137 from Tangle Patterns. 

     Pattern Collections has started a tangle a day to focus on.  I know I won't be able to keep up with this in a few days, but when I can it should be fun.  The tangle for yesterday was plum-lei.  I debated on color, but black and white won out.
     Putting the tangle b'twined on a circular string was a bit of a challenge.  Made by Joey gave us a good one this time.  I stuck with it and actually really love this tile.  Didn't think I would at first.
     Now off to do . . . something.  I think dinner is calling me for the moment.  I have got to spend some time getting the decorations done for my classroom door.  The problem is - I have no idea what to do.  I am sure it will "hit" me.  At least I hope so.  We shall see.
     Thank you for dropping by and I love reading your comments.  I always go and look at the art work on other sites but don't often have the time to comment on all of them.  So I truly appreciate the time you take to share a bit of sunshine with me. 


  1. Love your plum-lei tangle - never see that one - it's a gorgeous tile you've created - well they all are and your Inchie - very talented

  2. so many works this week. Love them all! Glad you are enjoying the last bits of summer.

  4. Great job with your b'twined circle and all your work.

  5. I had to laugh, Cathy, at the waiting for the idea to "hit" you. Of course, I used to do the same thing. I always wondered what would happen if it didn't hit me, but it never failed to do so. You should share a photo of your classroom when it is finished. As you will see, I was enamored by your plum-lei tangle and had to go on an Internet search where I found the Facebook group and joined. I don't know if I will be able to keep up either, but was a great additional resource!

  6. Lovely work! I especially love your Plum-lei piece;-)

  7. Some fantastic tangles, especially the Plum-lei. Great spiral inchie as well.

  8. who is it that said that August is the sunday of the week for teachers - always hated the beginning of school even though I liked teaching - I am not a morning person and getting up so early was awful after a summer of sleeping as late as I wanted to. Good inchie (my paper inchie looks a little like it)


Thank you for leaving me some sunshine! Your comments make my day!
