Tea with Layers

The last EIM word in November is Tea. I drew a samovar - a Russian contraption for making tea.

Moo Mania & More have Lots of Layers as homework this fortnight. We happen to be a multilayered society.

Sorry for hardly commenting last week. Out of sorts, but working on it. Anyway, you all know I love your work.

This week it's Crochet on EIM. So far, that was probably the toughest inchies to think of. I kept coming back to my aunt Yudif, who is a maniac crocheist (crocheter?).  I don't happen to have any samples of her work on hand to show, so I will just put her name into my hall of fame.

Exotic alright

Every Inchie Monday is fantastically clever. Exotic is the key word for the week. It's exotic for a start, as it does not follow the last letter of the previous word (which was Nymph, so this week had to start with H). And the other thought that came to mind is the star-nosed mole. Have a look at pics here, or google him. What else will life think of?! Who walks around with a nose like that?! Til I discovered the star nose, our animals were the coolest in the world. They still are, but just look at that star nose!

Moo Mania & More have Crowns as the keyword this fortnight. I have a miniature version of my winning piece from last year. This is St. Edward's crown stuck on a moo.

And now I have a good excuse to show off once again my winning glory at the 2014 Royal Melbourne show - see here and here.

Nymph is the word on Every Inchie Monday this week. I have Lady of the Lake with Excalibur from the Arthurian legends. At first I hated it and had to think of another idea for nymph. Then I saw the photo and thought "leave it in, couldn't be bothered". So here it is:

Love this new tangle, must practice ad-nauseam. Can't wait to see everyone's interpretation in Diva Challenge 242.

EIM's keyword this week is Emotion. This painting has continued to impress me with the same intensity as when I first discovered it, aged 14 or 15. Not many things scream emotion like this does.
Also, tomorrow, Nov 3 is Melbourne Cup Day. While I am not complaining about having a paid day off, I am screaming about all the horses that are killed and maimed each year at this race. I would give up this public holiday (and demand they bring back Easter Tuesday and Melbourne Show Day back as public holidays), if they stopped abusing horses.
So here is my arrrrrrrrgh:
