Growing up I spent a lot of time at Papa's farm (well, it was next door to our house). Along side one of his many gardens was this fence of sorts. There was a wire fence, but it was mostly brush and growth. Each morning you could step outside and see these gorgeous flowers blooming all over the fence. Reds, blues, whites, and purples. By the heat of the day, they were gone, only to repeat the next day. Hence their name morning glories. Yesterday when we went outside to play some with Lakota we saw some of these beauties along our fence. Only white for now. They were a pleasant reminder of home.
Every Inchie Monday's word was underground. I chose to put a few ants in my underground. Ants are such fascinating creatures. My morning devotional has had lots of articles about the ant lately. I think I would like an ant farm for my classroom. I probably won't get one, but it could be fun.
Sometimes when a string or a challenge is posted I can agonize for days trying to figure out what to do. Not this one. Made by Joey's challenge posted another circular string. The moment I saw it I knew it had to be "fengle", especially when she said it reminded her of a starfish at her place. So I drew fengle over the string and then added "pearly" twisting around it. I am very pleased with this one.
If you enjoy tangling, you need (if you haven't) to rush over to Pattern Collections. This site has everything a tangler could need. But most importantly - to me - is the total ease of load times and navigation. It is an awesome site. The reason I brought this up is Diva's challenge this week. We had to use a circular string. So I went to my new favorite site and looked up circle tangles. That is one of the best things about this site - all the tangles are sorted in a variety of ways - alphabetically, author, framework and more. So I went to the circles page, drew some circles with my compass on my tile and then just chose tangles from this page only. These are only a few. There were lots more to chose from. Lots.
This last tile is for the daily Facebook challenge (again Pattern Collections). The tangle was nymph, which I love because it is like nzeppel - one of my favorites.
Thanks for dropping by. Next week I will be preparing for my little ones to come. I get so excited about seeing them. It is especially sweet this year because they were mine last year (we loop and have them 2 years in a row). Have a wonderful week!
