Wait a minute. Those aren't horses! Someone changed things up Tuesday and there were cows in the pasture instead of horses. They were standing so still they looked like some sort of weird art installation too! I like the black calf and wonder if his daddy is the huge black bull I met on the trail when I was hiking a while back. I don't know where they came from but they are gone now. So it goes with the ever changing "nature channel" that I view from my window.
On to more artful things, I completed two tiles for the Muster Mixer Challenge this month. We were to combine Luv-A and Ish and I again had fun seeing how these two patterns could play together. I really like the idea of mashing the two ideas together to get a new pattern.
And of course there is the Weekly Diva Challenge. This being the first Monday of the month it is a "Use My Tangle" challenge. This month's tangle comes from Susan Goetter and she named it Fanz. I almost painted myself into a corner with this one. Since I had started at the long edge of the fan string I had drawn I found the fan shapes getting smaller and smaller. I finally realized that what was needed was a decrease like you would do when shaping a knitted hat so I started to do that and it worked like a charm. Whew! You never know which set of knowledge is going to come in handy on any given day. But it is nice to have a full toolbox.
