DIVA Challenge #252 Tangle In a Tangle

This week's challenge from the DIVA is to tangle in a tangle!  Use one tangle as your string, in this tile I used W2 and made it kind of wonky with different size squares.  Then I tangled inside it with Crescent Moon, Printemps, and Zander.  I had to add Tipple around the border to soften it up someI did this on a quick 30 minute break in our clean up...read below (even a basement flood won't keep me from the DIVA challenge)!


 
It's been a crazy week here!  We woke up Monday morning with about an inch of water in our basement...Yikes!  That's where I have my studio and classroom, not to mention all of the other stuff one stores down the basement.  It turned out a water pipe in our front yard broke and when the basement pump pit filled up, it overflowed.  Doug and I have been working our tails off all week to take care of this mess.  Looking at the positive, we were home,  we were only without water for 24 hours, we had a great plumber who knew how to fix this problem, only a huge hole dug in the front yard and not the whole yard, my daughter and son-in-law live in town so I could stay there Monday night, and we were able to save the carpet in the studio and classroom!  All the other carpet remnants in the other part of the basement had to go.  A lot of cutting carpet, hauling it to the dump, moving things around to get to it all, running fans, drying things, and putting it all back again.  Did I say our backs, arms, legs are pretty sore, and that we are exhausted...yup we are!  But, as the saying goes....it could have been worse!  I kept thinking of all the people you see on TV that lose everything they own in a flood, and this doesn't compare.  We are using it as an opportunity to get rid of a lot of stuff! That makes me think of the George Carlin routine on too much stuff, remember that, LOL!
If you made it this far, I hope your week was good and uneventful!

  1. So sorry to hear of your water problem. I can sympathize...we once had a pipe freeze and burst and flood about half of the first floor of our house. Hoping your cleanup is pretty much completed. Your tile is really pretty!

    I hope you have managed your water problem meanwhile.
    I am impressed about the way you cope with it ... This is the right way to come through such "incidents" - in the end you are a little bit stronger..

  6. I do like your tile. My week was sooooooooo quiet compared to yours. But, you are right, if you look at people who loose everything it's just a small thing. But ... nevertheless very annoying.
