Made by Joey #115, Diva Challenge #270 and IAST #147

Roman Numeral String Series: XV
Patterns: Seedlings, Garlic Cloves, Black Eyed Peas, Chard and Corn Rows

I've been out of my comfort zone/routine this week as I'm house/dog sitting for a new family. I managed to crank out some challenges in spite of a few technical glitches.
This is the last of Joey's Roman Numeral String Series introducing several "new to me patterns". This one did not really flow to my liking and I feel like I need to do another one. That being said, I usually don't do much better the second time around so I may just leave it. I'm thinking that for my next post I'll do a group shot of the series when I get back home.

 "Big Skye/Little Skye" #3
"Skye"

The Diva Challenge this week features Margaret Bremner's new pattern "Skye" thus making another appearance here. It's a good thing I like this pattern so much because it's showing up everywhere.
Moving along with the "Big Skye/Little Skye" series for my next swap, I just completed #3 to kill two birds with one stone. I'm using "Skye" as the string and also using it within.

Big Skye/Little Skye #2

Pixioze, Blooming Butter and Zinger

Adele provided the string of circles. Although I've seen it around quite a bit, I've never used "Blooming Butter" before. I love "Pixioze" and "Zinger"...this is a different attempt at "Zinger". I made up a set of watercolor tiles on some green parchment card stock a while back. 
This next one is on a tile from the same set. I created this last week for one of my Facebook groups which introduced a new pattern called "Aurora" by Sarah Harrison.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Your thoughtful and generous comments inspire and delight me.

  2. My mind is officially blown by your "Big Skye, Little Skye" tile, especially the idea of using "Big Skye" as your string. Impressive and very pretty.

  4. I love your way with colour, always so subtle and gentle but this week I'm a bit gobsmacked by your pattern in a pattern tiles. I had enough difficulty just doing it once!
