The cars are sorted, thanks goodness! But on Tuesday morning, we had a Shark attack at the beach. The guy is alive, thanks to the Shark Spotters who stemmed the blood loss, he has however lost his right leg. The saddest part is that the Shark alarm had gone off twice that morning already, and he was told that the beach was closed and yet he still went for his swim!! Yesterday (Thursday) the beach was closed the whole daty because a shark was just "chilling" in the bay the whole day! I went up the mountain to where the Shark Spotters sit and for the first time, saw a shark swimiing around the bay. (There are videos on YouTube for anyone who wants to see). Nippers starts next weekend...I think we'll be doing a lot of beach work this season!
Both my girls took part in the Evening of Choir at the Primary School on Tuesday, and as you can see, I was busy during the parts they didn't sing!
On Wednesday I went to pottery and my tiles were finished!! The blue ones were painted with underglaze first, and I then scratched out the tangles with a porcupine quill...the white ones were drawn with an underglaze pencil. Not sure where I'm going to put them yet, but I love they way they turned out!
Then....my tile project....we had to make tiles! Obviously I was going to zentangle mine! So we wedged the clay, rolled and cut out our tiles (mine are 10cm X 10cm), I then drew the string and started tangling. Once I'd finished, they were bisqued and then I coloured them....
...and taadaa....drum roll please....My tangled tiles!

Challenge #41 from the Diva had us using only two tangles. I must admit that I enjoy these challenges because it gets me using tangles I don't normally use and it definitely out of my comfort zone! I enjoyed the Opus ones and got some great ideas from the Enthusiastic Artist on her blog.
And then last, but definitely not least...I finished my pencilled Sunflower! I used watercolour pencil for the background colouring and then layer upon layer of pencil on top! This one is going to be framed!!

And that brings an end to my week!! Phew!
Enjoy your weekend!
