Tangled Tuesday No. 67

Hooray for time off… especially time off with very few commitments, allowing one to do whatever one chooses with said time… in my case (as you might well imagine), plenty of tangling! Happy Tangled Tuesday!

New Tangles

This week I learned Flapper, L zen 7’s, Curl, Woodlock, Inchworm, Snail, and Helix, all from TanglePatterns.com.

Finished Projects

For the first time in awhile I managed to start AND finish a slightly larger piece (in this case, a 6″ x 6″ tile) – hooray for time off indeed!

I started out with Diane & Carolien’s Weekly Challenge #31: Tangle with S-F-T, choosing the tangles Sprigs, Fandance, and Tipple. The first two patterns were ones I’d previously learned but had not yet had a chance to use in a finished project, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to do so… and the third is one of my go-to filler tangles which seemed to suit the remaining space.

Then I moved on to Zendala Dare #115 from The Bright Owl. An extra level of challenge this week was to only use tangles beginning with the letters T-H-A-N-K-S. I chose Ta-da, Heartline, Apeel, Narwal, Kringel, and Swag.

Next was joey’s weekly tangle challenge #86, which was to use W2 in a monotangle. You might remember that I chose this pattern as the base of a recent larger piece (ZIA 48, shown in this post), so for this challenge I decided to change it up a little and work with a more warped grid.

Finally I completed The Diva’s Challenge, in which we were to do “just a tiny taste” of tangling and leave the majority of our tile empty (a whole lot harder than you might think!).
