It's a String Thing #164

Adele is not giving us a string this time and she likes us to create a tile with W2. She mentioned the Fall Season as well and I immediately saw the pattern Oke in my head. So, I combined these 2 tangles into 1 drawing.

I got a little help from my sweet cat Izzy who suddenly decided to give head. So cute! I'll never forget, because he left a line on the right bottom side of my tile :-)

Hollibaugh as a frame

Hollibaugh is a great pattern that can also be used as a frame. I filled the tile with Scallops, Quiltz, Petal Pusher, Tearce and Sand:

Joey's challenge #132

Joey has drawn a wobbly stretch down the middle of her tile and filled it with the lovely pattern Diva Dance. I finished the tile with Crescent Moon, Ixorus and Hypnotic.

Thank you Joey, for your great challenges!

Diva challenge #286

This week, we're only using straight lines for Laura's challenge. Next to straight line tangles, I tried to keep Footlites straight. It looks OK, but this tangle normally has curvy lines in the base, and I agree it should stay that way ;-)

The other patterns I've used are Flukes, Pinwheels, Zin and Zedbra. 

Thank you for stopping by, you're comments brighten my day :-)

Alphabet challenge #74: C-J-T

Diane and Carolien challenge us to draw a tile with tangles starting with C, J and T. I wanted to try Cindyer, so I started with that one in a circle. Inside this circle, I drew Tizzy and Jax.

Alphabet challenge #74: C-T-J

Diane and Carolien have some technical issues with the links button on their site, so I can't upload my tile with tangles starting with C, T and J. I can show it here though :-)

The tangles I used are Crux, Tour and Jemz and I just stacked them ;-)

It's a String Thing #162

Adele Bruno was inspired by two tangles of Molly Hollibaugh when she drew this week's string. The tangles include Ing and Hollibaugh, and Bubbles by Suzanne McNeill. They filled up my tile pretty well :-)

Joey created a new 'finish my tile' challenge with Tipple in the corners. In the middle, I drew three lines of Ping and filled some spaces with Munchin and Paradox. Thank you for another nice challenge, Joey!

Diva challenge #284

We're doing a monotangle this week @ Laura's challenge. Nice! The tangle we use is Tripoli and I thought about tangling variations of it, but in the end I decided to just use one tanglation. This is the one I love to draw the most, so plenty of zen here :-))

Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments brighten my day :-)

It's a String Thing #161

Adele was inspired by the rain when she chose the patterns Hibred, Rain and Raindotty. We've finally had some lovely sunny weather in The Netherlands for the last couple of weeks, however I still enjoyed tangling these patterns ;-)

Joey's challenge #129

This week's finish my tile challenge has the tangle Sprigs on it. A nice pattern, but I wasn't sure what to finish it with. I ended up using a couple of sort of 'solitaire' tangles: Ahh, Flux, Tipple and 133.

Take a look here to see what other people combined Sprigs with!

Facebook's group Square One likes us to focus on the tangle Beeline. I decided to let Punzel grow out of it ;-)

It's a String Thing #160

Adele likes us to explore the tangles Fengle and Shattuck. The result is a lot of Shattuck and a bit of Fengle :-)
