Weekly Challenge #139, Cranberry Picking, and CSA pick-up

I started the day picking up my weekly CSA order from Clear Brook Farm. I was so happy that it included a Romanesco cauliflower among the box of goodies. I love this plant! It is a pattern girl's dream veggie; it's filled with wonderful fibonacci patterning. Click on pictures to enlarge.
On to the Diva Challenge #139: 8s Parte Dos is a new tangle created by Jane Eileen and that is our challenge this week. I enjoyed creating a tile, monotangle style: using just one pattern. It was fun to make each one look a little different. I changed the size and the tangleations.

Today I got back in my kayak after being away from it for a while. My younger son and I went out to a local lake to go cranberry picking for a couple of hours. We have a good time adventuring together. As you can see, Grahame got out of his canoe to go pick. I picked from my kayak most of the time, but did get out and walk in the bog too, mostly because I love walking on bogs. I am happy to report that it didn't hurt as much this time around to get out of my kayak. Yay! I'm seeing (feeling) progress.

On the way home from the lake I spotted some more cairns. They seem to be popping up all over our community. Here's what I found: Click on pictures to enlarge.

What a great day!


  1. The tile is great, but the cranberry bog is awesome! You must have had a great day!

  2. Wow, just did a close up on the cairns too! What a fun thing to see!

  3. Your 8s tile is great! You are a lucky person to live in a beautiful neighbourhood like this.

  4. Lovely variations of 8´s Parte Dos! Wonderful photos!
