First of all, as always - a few house keeping items:

- To see all the past weekly challenges - click the tab above, or follow this link
- Please grab the button for the Weekly Challenge (on the right sidebar) to display on your blogs! share the fun!
- The limit of submissions to the slideshow is TWO, but please feel free to post as many as you like to your blogs. I will take the first two presented to each challenge.
- and i want to say a very extra special big heart felt thank you to everyone who donated funds. I continue to be amazed by the generosity of spirit of this wonderful community. HUGS!
Also, it's interesting to note that my counter (on the left sidebar) is PERILOUSLY CLOSE to going over 500K!!
|Artoo makes a mess|
|Sure, when he's playing he'll put one of these in his mouth|
But do it at the Doctor's office and it's freak out city!
|Fall - it's happening!|
We have been having just an amazing bout of beautiful weather up here. Every morning is crisp and chilly, but by afternoon the sun is hot and the air has that "Autumn" feeling that i love so much.

Weekly Challenge #89: UMT v. IX: "Sankegg"
Back in June, B-rad and i had the most amazing opportunity to see Roger Waters perform The Wall in concert. We had to travel to Edmonton to see it (one province over, about 6 hours by car). On our way home, we stopped off the highway to see the world's largest Pysanka Egg! I posted about it here and wondered aloud if anyone wanted to try to figure out the Y pattern on the Egg.
|I'm so tiny|
Not a day later, i received an email from Maria Vennekens, CZT from the Netherlands with breakout instructions for the tangle she named Sankegg. Maria doesn't have a blog, so i added her tangle to the UMT list for her. I was so thrilled to see it pop up when i randomly selected this month's tangle!!

*If you don't know about UMT - here's the scoop: The first Monday of each month will feature a home-made tangle - chosen at random from the linky list here. Anyone who has created their own tangle is eligible for submission, providing it follows the guidelines listed here. (Please read the guidelines)
If you have a blog, add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here)
Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;)
If you don't have a blog but still want to participate, you can email your tile to me and i will post it here. (See the contact tab above for my email address). The deadline for each weekly challenge is Saturday night so that i can round everyone up by Sunday. What this means is that i will stop adding tiles to the slideshow on Sunday. You're still more than welcome to do the challenges and add your name to the linkey machine.
Hey - i should note here quickly that i try my best to get the slideshows up in a timely fashion, but sometimes my life gets in the way (like when Artoo spends a week in the hospital, just for example) so, please be patient. thanks. HUG
I will be more diligent with the linkey machine - by editing out the ones that don't work, the doubles, the links that lead to nowhere, the links that go just to blog home pages (this is why we need those site specific urls), and the spam. And there is some spam. PLEASE do not put your *home* page in the linkey machine... please? for me??
