This week's Diva Challenge was so much fun! Ben and I sat out on the patio last night. We're getting to be real accomplished patio-sitters, me 'n' Ben! I ate my supper and worked on the challenge in the gorgeous spring weather. I met new neighbor Phil and his dog, Hershey. And I was glad to chat with my upstairs neighbor, Annie and her dog Finnegan. Annie is doing well after her date with the hunky EMTs and fireman who swept her off her feet and took her away on Saturday. Just another beautiful evening in the 'hood.
The Challenge is called "Colour Me Sepia"...and yes, 'colour' is spelled like that because she's from Canada so she's allowed. I am merely guilty by association and will return to the more uncultured spelling of things after this post. But for now I like the flavour. But I digress.... The challenge was to use brown in the typically black and white tangle. I decided to take the challenge literally and use the brown to color in spaces and the black to outline...with the exception of the border...because that was where I started and with all the neighboring going on, I had two triangles filled in with black before I realized what I was doing. the picture doesn't really show the difference between the black and brown since my brown was a little on the darker side but you can get the gist of it if you look close.
I also combed the Genevieve Crabb's weekly round up for new patterns and enjoyed trying some of these for the first time. I especially enjoyed Laura Williams' LinQ; it's the fancy swoopy thing with the pearls and stripes that runs across the middle.
So thank again, Diva for another relaxing evening and a chance to learn new patterns!
