This week's Diva Challenge was to use a specific string (the foundation line to use as a guide to fill in the tangles). The String looks like this picture (which I shamelessly stole from the Tangle Pattern site. If I'm in trouble, please let me know and I'll take it down and apologize!)
Anytime a string has those little loopies in it, I see 'Purk'. They look like seed pods to me and are one of my favorites. So I put them in both loops. I decided to 'theme' the rest of the tangle with nature designs-Sanibel in the lower right (and Purk) for plants, Rikpool by the amazing Neil Burkey, for the sea, Vauche for the animal print in the lower right hand corner and for the life of me I can't remember the one in the upper left for the stars/sky. If someone knows and could leave the name in the comments, I'd appreciate it. It's a new-ish one for me and I've been adding it to a lot of tangles lately.
I also made this hummingbird on a Thank You note for my Mum. The color was added digitally afterward.
I like to tangle sitting on the sofa with my lap desk, but these days I have a lot of help. Cooper insists on sitting ON whatever paper I have and swatting at the pen
See what a big help he is?
Eventually he plays himself out and then SLEEPS on my work
But look at that face! It's not difficult to put down the tangle and just snuggle the little guy.
His Nibs has his second kitty vet visit this afternoon. When I got him on July 1, he weighed about a pound and a quarter. I think he's around three lbs now. He eats like a wee piglet. He'd weight more except he's pretty much in high gear all the time he's awake. He's a curious mix of flying squirrel, porcupine, burdock and snugglemonster. It'll be interesting to find out what the vet says.
