I got my Diva Challenge tile finished on Monday, but have been fooling around all week trying to complete a couple other focus challenges. Bust... When the inspiration dries up and you have other things going on (good stuff, really!), you end the week with not much to show.
Just a bit of local color to start:
|This is what you get when you throw in a $1.59 pack of seeds into a pot.|
|Marigolds started from seeds from last year's blooms|
|Aloe, Vinca and Hibiscus are all happy in this moderate weather. We'll see what survives the coming inferno.|
Speaking of color:
I have an upcoming "Sip and Tangle" type party at a friend's home, and thought I would pre-string some tiles for the guests. Cabernet takes center stage, but I used a bit of Moscato to add an "optional" additional line. I'm anxious to see how these turn out!
DIVA CHALLENGE #276 (I say it is #267 since last week was #266, but who am I?) DUOTANGLE POKEROOT AND DRUPE
I have been fooling around with my watercolors and managed to come up with this. I am pleased, and now motivated to look into a watercolor class. I have avoided them because I'm not a landscape girl, but maybe...
I had just been playing around with the newly published Hollyhock by Jason Lau when the focus on Square One came up with Batumber. I think they must be related!
I saw the tangle Fluxogee by Hanny Waldburger, and gave it a try. I wouldn't say this is totally perfected - the shading could be better - but I had fun, so here it is, folks!
So, Dear Readers, that's it for this week - late again, but mostly because I was procrastinating. Thank you for stopping by and know that I cherish all your thoughts and comments.
