Challenge # 85 Breaking Free

The last couple of days we've spent at the hospital.....my buddy is having a little bit of a rough patch with the low white cell count...  Throughout our "ordeal" this year, there have been two things that have really helped pass the time for me...one is my Kindle Fire (I LOVE my Kindle...for more than just books!) and the other thing that has kept me occupied are the Internet challenges I have gotten into...I can take my sketchbook anywhere and "doodle" away!

This week, the Diva challenged us to do a tile and "break outside the boundaries of the box"!  The challenges are posted each week on Monday, so my other favorite item came in real handy.  As the hospital has Wifi (albeit a little sporadic), I could use my Kindle Fire to get on line and check out the Diva's website to get the topic.  And I could also get to Linda Farmer's website to look for tangles I wanted to use!

  1. This looks great, Jay. I love the "streams" of pattern running through the design & how you have alternated them. Lacing looks great, too :) I hope your buddy is feeling better and that they are/soon to be out of hospital

  2. Lovely ZIA. I love how the "threads" weave through the piece and then float freely. Very unique.
