New job with daily trainings in COMPLETELY new software systems, almost a new system per day, and today, Friday, my day ended with my brain pretty much twitching.
So it felt really good to go through pictures to put in this blog post. Like this one:
I *did* do quite a bit of tangling and enjoyed it so much. It is so needed now, more than ever before with this much higher energy, much more responsibility, job.
So, the Diva Challenge this week, care of guest blogger Suzanne Fluhr, was to use one of my absolute favorite tangles, Aloha, in a piece.
So, I played:
I did some free form, and some inside squares, and played with perls and tipples and dots. Some thick lines, some thin, some smooth, some rough

Well, in one swap bot exchange, an Australian tangler named Jane, sent me some papers that she had colored using Margaret Bremner's bio technique.
But first, here are pictures of grandkids:
Like, my granddaughter Nodge (aka Nadia)...she is 7 going on 17, as you can see. Here, our girls day out, having a cone at Baskin-Robbins, looking like a movie star.
(btw, I also have a 14 year old. Grandchild. Yes. Young lil me, with a teenaged grandson. But I don't have his picture, due to his leaving the room when cameras get pointed. Aidan, whose name backwards is...NADIA, his little sister)

Oh! I made a feather the other night:
|I could do this all day!|
This is bracket feather, one of Helen Williams' patterns. I relaxed with it after work one evening this past week. aaahhhhh.
but wait, what about the baby!
Did I post this picture already? but isn't it just the most beautiful Madonna ever? From baby's first week home.

And here he is, with his daddy, up camping. He got a tummy ache that weekend, and spent a lot of time being held belly down by everyone in camp.

I started with another comfort tangle, Mooka, and spent the evening filling a page.
Mooka, hollibaugh, rain, N'zeppel, tripoli, Printemps, fescu, cypresses, spirally stuff.
Okay, so what did I end up doing for the Diva Challenge, besides play around with Aloha?
Some Msst here and there. Some falling leaves. Curves galore...I LOVE the curvy Aloha!
and here's some more bebeh:
gee whiz, what a cutie!
He just turned three months old and more fun every day. I got to go over last Sunday and hold him pretty much all afternoon while his mom did housework and took a shower. And hung out, talking our faces off. What a pleasant day.
Tricky little feller...fall asleep while being held and then wake up alert, calm, and cheerful the moment you put him down.
But I also held him for all the short naps, too. Little angoo baboo love bean!
