Blogging from A to Z Challenge – U is for…

I’m tangling from A to Z – U is for…
Up n Down

(Pssst… new here? Welcome to Alphabet Salad! For some background on how and why I got involved in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, check out this post… and, if you’d like to catch up on my progress to date, all of my challenge posts are tagged with Tangling from A to Z. Glad you stopped by, and hope you’ll return!)


Tangle Practice

The tangle named “Unyun” makes me giggle, because Peter always teases me about the way I say onion (he claims I say something more like ungyun). I’ll have to remember the name of this tangle so that I’ll be reminded of the correct way to say the word (at least, according to Peter)!

Border & String

Just to carry on with the whole A to Z theme, I thought I’d make each day’s “string” resemble the appropriate letter for the day. I can’t always promise that the finished tiles will look anything like the letters – it all depends on which tangles I’m using and how the drawing evolves. We’ll just have to see what happens!
