Dare #150 One Little Word

This week the Diva has us focusing on one little word. At first I was going to cheat and use the same word "possibility" that the church is using... that just didn't sit well with me.  Then I seriously gave thought to a word of my own for the year. I kept coming up with the word "Joy" but for some reason I hesitated to put it into a drawing. And then as I was contemplating what excursions I would like to try on our next cruise (Jamaica here we come! April will be here before I know it) and found myself giving actual real consideration to a few that would stretch my comfort level. We are going to swim with the dolphins which I am uber excited about. And then my hubby wants to go para-sailing. He has done it before and I have always declined, but there is one that lets you go tandem and I am actually thinking about going! ME!!! Terrified of heights - won't go up a ladder ME!

So my word for this year is "Challenge". I have enjoyed doing the weekly challenges from various groups. They stretch my creative mind and now I need to stretch the rest of me. Oh boy, what have I gotten myself into? This one will need  prayer. Lots of prayer!


I also challenged myself on this to use all grid tangles (I prefer the more flowy ones) and I used ones I had never done before. Some I like and some I don't, but that's OK. One of the great things about challenges is that you do something new and you find out what you like and what you don't.

I love your challenge within a challenge. And your tile is lovely! I, too, love flowy tangles, but the more structured ones make them stand out even more. Nice work!

Your tile with the grids of beautiful and so is your word.
Overcoming your fear is a real challenge, I know all about that.

Challenge is a great word to choose and I like your tile. I myself love grid pattern. I also like the way you used my Telis pattern with an "eye" in the leaf. What a brilliant idea. I hope that is one of the tangles you did like doing!!

Thank you for your comments. @Chrissie yes yours was one that I enjoyed doing. you will note that even my grid is flowy. I just have such a hard time making neat little rows!

What an exciting time you have to look forward to. I'm glad you are willing to "challenge" yourself to stretch outside of your comfort zone. I hope you have a wonderful experience. You will have to share.
