Weekly Challenge #190 came right in the middle of canning applesauce and cran/apple juice. I am Diva called this Challenge Pink for Ardath because last winter her grandmother Ardath passed away from complications due to Breast Cancer.
I appreciate these themes especially for days like today; to be given a subject and don’t have to do too much thinking, just draw freely while waiting for the apples to turn to mush. Since we had such a great harvest this year, my brain is already mush trying to coordinate the food storage for the winter.
I dedicate my pink challenge to some of the survivors in my life, Sheila – my good friend and fellow crone, Virginia, one of my many bosses, and Virginia’s daughter. I am glad you were able to stay here with me. We make sure to have wonderful coffee times together, cherishing each day.
Obviously the scan didn’t pick up all the color, because this paper is bright pink. The notes and keys are for Ardath who love music. The ribbons are for Virginia’s hair. The stitches are for Sheila, trying to hold herself together after the second bout with breast cancer.. The hearts are for everyone, survivors and supporters, to remind us to love each other every day.

lovely sentiments and tile – I like how your tangles represent something to you.
Great tribute, love the sentiments you added for some special people. It became a very personal tile and piece of art.
Your post is filled with love and that shows in your tile.
Wow! It’s an amazing tribute! Your tile and explanation gave me goosebumps.
Wonderful Tribute Tile. Very nice patterns selected and put into your design. Love the interweaving double loop patterns on the right side of your tile. Well done.
I like how you have used specific meaningful tangles for each of the women in your life. The end result is like a favorite quilt to wrap up in. Good luck in your canning. My Asian Pear butter turned out fantastic this year! 🙂
Beautiful post. Like the way you described the different parts of your tile. All you people being so homey is amazing to me.
Nice tribute and appreciate your sharing your thoughts behind the tangles you chose. Sometimes there is a specific reason and other times it is random. Really like your ribbon on the right side. Nice shading.
