Wild Ride

To say that the last week has been a wild ride would be a vast understatement. I reconnected with my birth family and found out that I have a whole slew of sisters and a brother, who have welcomed me with open arms. It's been an overwhelming, wonderful, roller-coaster ride putting all of the little pieces of the story together.

With the good comes the bad. A tornado hit just up the street from our house. We didn't get any damage, but have been picking up tiles, insulation and pulverized dry wall (tornado loogies) all week, It's been crazy weather with storm after storm and we've had 3 tornado warnings so far, flooding, mudslides. Wheeee! So far no one has been seriously hurt, just a lot of property damage and things can be replaced. 

I was playing with Knightsbridge the other night and came up with some new tangle patterns. At least I think they're new. I have't seen them anywhere before. They are really 'variations' on Kightsbridge but I named then anyway The tiles are quick and dirty with little to no shading in most places.  But I wanted to see what it looked like to use the new patterns. I think there is a lot of possiblity there. Possibilities that it's obvious I didn't explore with these tiles! :-)

Okay, missy! I see that you used some of the new techniques that we learned in class last Saturday, too! Nice work! Very nice work on the new tangles and step-outs!
Tangle away!

And we tangle through the "tornadoes" in our lives. Love your tangles and your story. We met my husband's daughter a year ago (after 50 years). I know that is a HUGE upheaval for all involved. Congrats to you and your new found family.

Love your new tangles - they look like fun! I am fixing to add them into my notebook. Glad you did not have any tornado damage. Also glad things worked out with your "new" family. Have a blessed day!
