THIS is BIG!

I shall get this ball rolling by putting in my inchies for the week. At EIM, the word is "BIG." Putting "BIG" on an inchie is like saying "JUMBO shrimp," but needless to say, there were plenty of choices.

I had a tough time whittling it down to four this time around. We have a tree big enough to drive through, the Crab Nebula or an example of a supernova (the best of my ideas for working on the Big Bang Theory--the physics, not the television show), Cheech and Chong's album and a certain young lady who grew up to be a REALLY BIG deal and who recently celebrated a REALLY BIG birthday.

Last week's IAST was a tribute to the Queen's 90th birthday. I didn't get mine in on time, but I did it!

I got in the groove for this week's. I'm not sure I got the instructions quite, but I'm pleased with the result. Especially with help from Margaret Bremner's tutorial on "Echoism." It's a must-read, I think, for getting into that pattern. Thank you, Margaret!

The Diva was looking for Stripes this week. I'm sure I could have played it straight(er), but I didn't. What a surprise, huh?!



I've been trying to work the pattern, "Wud" as it falls into what I want to do for the current TwobyTwo. The first one is more in line than the second, where it looks more like fingerprints.
But, that's okay. Might be cause for investigation into a different idea...you never know where you might end up, right?

I am grateful for the women that put these challenges out there for all of us to tackle and for all of you who stop by, if even for just a moment. I particularly like when you leave a comment or two. Encouragement is truly welcome, as is practical critique that may help me improve or move into yet uncharted territory.

And I encourage you to follow some of the links to the various posts.
Especially to the TwobyTwo!
