Weekly Challenge #202 - Duotangle Chebucto vs Copada

This was the perfect weekly Diva Challenge. I've been trying to think of ways to use "stripe" or "border" tangles in different ways. Once I figured out how to turn a corner in chebucto, it finally came together.

Patterns used: Chebucto and Copada

Weekly Challenge #201 - Moebius Syndrome

I've been playing with paper all month. (and um... Go Hawks!)


So, it seemed that for this week's Diva challenge, I just needed to do the paper strip. It was a bit harder than I thought it would be, but it's pretty fun now that it's done.

Patterns used: Antique and Onion Drops

Weekly Challenge #200 - TADA!

OK, I'm coming clean. I read the Diva Challenge this week, and actually went looking for that new "Mac 'n cheese" tangle because I don't remember hearing about it before. (red face) Well, after figuring out where I went wrong, I started looking through old tangles to see what my "Mac 'n cheese" tangle was. Mooka? Nah. Pokeleaf... several cameo appearances, but no. Looking through my sketchbook, I discovered it was Sanibelle.

I used to think monotangles were dull... like taking the exact same route to work every day... but found doing this one was VERY ZEN. That's the point, right? I wasn't worried about making sure I had different values, or tangles that worked together, just the joy of a favorite tangle building around and around. Then my zen snapped when I realized I'd forgotten the 200. My guy said the roman numeral for 200 is CC, so I snuck that in. He's clever like that. I'm so lucky.

I look forward to seeing what everyone else's "Mac 'n Cheese" tangle might be!

Happy New Year. Wasn't it lovely to enjoy the holidays and play? I hadn't done any quilling in forever, and it was great getting back to it. The Duchess "D" is complete!

For this week's Diva Challenge, we were given Hitched. I'd missed my challenge challenge over the holidays!
