Diva's Weekly Challenge #259




Zac, my husband said: "If you don't drink alcohol, you'll never understand what Saint Patrick's Day is. " Yes, I don't drink alcohol, even though I lived in Berlin for 7 years, the city with the most beer-drinkers on the street. And yes , I couldn't get in the spirit for Saint Patrick's Day, even thou there were a lot "green" celebrations in Berlin around this season.

I tried using 2 different green pans to finish this weekly challenge. I used heart......something (I forgot the name of this pattern) to be the shamrock, but the result is not so obvious.

The weekly confession is: I skipped last weekly challenge again. This time the reason is I got little bit tired of tangling. So I just drew on some Bijous to keep practicing the basic patterns and didn't finish any tile. 

Today I got my new hand-made shoes! They are made by a small factory with traditional skill. Before the Made in China took over the world, Taiwanese shoes were one of the most important exports for Taiwan's economy. They look awesome,don't they? 



Zac說不懂喝酒的人是不可能懂這個什麼聖派翠克節的,這我懂得,以前在柏林有人邀這天出去玩我都意興闌珊,結果這幅圖也搞得意興闌珊。

老實說我畫的有點馬虎,可能和最近對禪繞產生厭倦感有關,不過我還是會每天畫一些蝸牛磚保持手感,只是始終提不起精神來完成一幅真正的紙磚作品。

上星期就是這樣又錯過挑戰,週挑戰已經逐漸變成雙週挑戰了,以這種漸漸對禪繞失去興趣的程度,我真為我的六月禪繞認證擔心XD

買了一雙新鞋,美死了。

  2. Great tile, and you did the right thing to make shamrocks. We were always taught to draw heart shapes with the point together, so I knew straight away they were your shamrocks. Yes there is a lot of drinking goes on almost the men on Paddy's Day here in Ireland, but apart from that the main thing for most people is the Parade. There is a parade in a lot of little places like my village as well as a huge Parade in Dublin.
    I love your shoes, beautiful colours, they look nice and soft to wear. I think it is a good thing to take a break from tangling if that is how you feel otherwise it will just become a big chore and you might never come back to it and that would be such a shame.

  4. Great tiles and beautiful shoes. My son lives in Taipei and when we went to visit him we had a dress shirt made for my husband. Such fantastic fabric and fits like it was made for him ;)
