Happy Tuesday!!

     Every Inchie Monday's word was chameleon.  I love those lizards!  Many years ago I owned a Jacksonian chameleon.  He was so precious.  When you held him he would wrap his fingers around your finger.  Mine had 3 horns so he looked a lot like a Triceratops!  I wish I had had him now in this age of information overload.  There are things I would have done for his care that I simply did not know to do. 
     One more week for the Joey Inspirational challenge!  I really am enjoying this.  I may have to try it again on my own.  I love getting the "new" challenge and then seeing how to connect in all the previous tiles. 
     Diva's challenge was to use the tangle Tint.  I really am not too keen on how this turned out.  But at least I finished it - that was a challenge!
     October is INKtober!  I decided to play along and do these in my calendar journal.  Here are days 1 - 6.  I know I am well ahead, but I decided to be ahead since I am not sure what my plans are for the end of this week.  I used the prompts from Wholehearted Zen Creations, but there are lists of prompts all over different sites. 

     Here are just a couple of more things that kept me occupied this week -

     Okay friends, tomorrow is the DAY!  I have my surgery at 9:30 on my cataract.  Please stop and say a prayer for me.  I honestly will be glad to just have it over.  I am still anxious, yes, but I am also excited.  I hope there is a huge difference.  I also hope for a healthy eye under this cataract - they could not get any data the cataract was so thick.  Yuck.  I am not sure when I will be able to get back to creating.  Surely that doesn't take too long??  Anyone know??
    Have a wonderful rest of the week and thanks for dropping by!  Hugs!


  1. LOL, Cathy. I warned you that being retired meant that your schedule would be even more full! I wonder why that is :)
    Good idea to do the Inktober in the calendar. I just can't allow myself to add another "must" this month. I really like your round and colored flower style Zendala!

  2. You can tangle with one eye, I know this for a fact because of my own cataract. By now, your surgery is over, and I'm betting you are absolutely fine, right?

    Your tiles, as always, are beautiful, absolutely beautiful.


  3. Wow! so much lovely work Cathy;-) Best wishes on your surgery.

  4. All your work is fabulous!! I love your Joey's tiles! Your Tint tile looks like a garden! Best wishes with your cataract surgery! My mom was back to quilting within the week. My dad back to reading in a couple days.💜

  5. Your pieces are all so interesting, love the chameleon story too...your surgery is behind you now and I hope it was fairly stress free for you and the outcome is all you could wish...Dxx

  6. Gorgeous inchie and tiles. Hope you are OK.


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