challenge #94 - Socc

This week's Diva Challenge was to use Socc - a pattern that I love, LOVE and am going to be using a lot more!

Such a fun pattern to work with - I have a couple more drawings in progress, hopefully I'll get them all done, but I'm a bit torn between other projects I also want to complete.

Here is the one that I did today.


Laura had drawn tendrils reaching out from socc on her tile - a very inspiring idea that got me thinking of how I could extend the socc into other areas of the design.

The fat little socc at the top reminded me of bulbs - so they grew a few lillies! Of course, I didn't want untidy ends so I tied them up - well most of them any way - some of the naughty ones escaped! The sides (in a master stroke of evasion) disappeared down the holes.

  4. I think I like your description of your drawings as much as the drawings themselves -- almost as much. I agree it is fun to use. Have thought of a couple of ways to use in some of the Christmas things I am doing. Great work.

  18. I always look forward to your entries - Beautiful, and interesting to read your process. This is such a pretty way to use Socc, and you're right, it really does look like bulbs (or tubers). I love the lillies, but especially the soft roots wrapped around a stick then tied in such a pretty flowy knot.
