I do not like storms. I am fearful of them even though I try very hard to be brave. I am not. They (the weather people) are saying that there is a very good likelihood we will have severe storms in our area this evening and tonight. My stomach has already knotted up. Since I won't finish this post til tomorrow, I will let you know how it went. Hopefully nothing to report!
Joey's challenge was to use the tangle coil. I like this one a lot and need to remember to use it more. That is one of the things I like about challenges, they remind me of tangles I had once used and put on the shelf. Thought I would play with the hollibaugh effect with this tangle. The center tangle is krokus.
My heart has been filled with a lot of sadness this week. You may have possibly heard that Tripp Halstead passed away. He was a little boy who captured the hearts of thousands when a tree limb fell on him at his daycare. I followed the family on FB and became quite attached to them. I had prayed so hard he would make at least a semi recovery. But five years after the accident he simply could not battle any longer. I feel so sorry for that precious family. I feel as though I know them even though I don't really.
Every Inchie Monday's country this week was Russia. My first thought were those gorgeous onion dome buildings! I love them. I had my inchie all done and realized that I had the colors of the flag in the wrong order - arghh! So I had to redo the whole thing. I should pay more attention.
Diva's challenge was to use our name as a string. I have recently fallen in love with the tangle feathering so I decided to fill this tile with feathers. I love the flowing and ease of this tangle. It definitely defines zen to me.
Weather update: We had one slight storm, but nothing else. No high winds or hail! No tornados! There were some areas around us that had some major problems, but we were blessed! I am so thankful.
Some days getting on my bike is hard work. Today was not one of them. I finished my Road to Hana race - 59.5 miles!! I hopefully will get my shirt and medal this week! Now I am off to the California Redwood forest for a journey through the woods!
My coloring book focus this past week was from Beautiful Flowers and Arrangements by Creative Haven. I was able to do quite a few because they are really quite simple. Very relaxing and fun. Hope you don't mind if I share this past week's work.
Thank you for dropping by and leaving me some sunshine. Have a great week! Hugs!
