The boys are recovering from strep throat, but i think Artoo has a bit of a viral cough on top of things. It seems to be going away, but it's taking it's sweet time - as all viruses seem to hook their claws in and outstay their welcome with him.

Artoo loves music and we often have dance parties in the kitchen - we got there and he took his boots off and said: "Bye mom! I'm going to go do zumba now!" and made himself at home.
Sadly this class is full, or i would have signed him up then and there... i didn't realize it was a class for ages 4-6, or i would have totally signed him up.

So, it was a better week - things are slowly getting back to normal. How was yours?
Weekly Challenge #203: "UMT - Athitzi by Seven"
this week's Use My Tangle challenge is brought to you by Seven - and it is called Athitzi. You can find the step outs for the tangle HERE **My deepest apologies - this tangle is by Seven, Not Eleanor. I must have been half asleep while writing this post.**
I really enjoyed this tangle. I found it very relaxing, and it's a no-brainer - as in you don't have to really think about 'steps' you can really zone out. One of my favourite tangles is KEEKO because i love to draw those little lines. So, naturally, i really enjoyed this one too. It reminds me, very much, or the hatching technique they teach you in high school art classes.
A good tip is to try to make your rows of tiny lines touch a little bit, and to keep your tiny lines close together.
This week's challenge is to incorporate Athitzi into your tile or piece. I know i'll probably come back again and again to this one.
For those of you who don't know, the first Monday of the month, is a UMT Challenge (Use My Tangle), where the challenge is to learn and use a tangle created by one of you! It's awesome for me, because i don't have time to try all the new tangles i see on the web on a regular basis. This challenge makes sure i'm at least learning ONE new tangle a month...
if you have a tangle you'd like to submit, please follow this link for the guidelines for submissions. Each month's tangle is chosen at random by www.random.org
Have a great week!
