Challenge #69 - Use My Tangle

Yay!  I actually got to the Diva challenge on time this week!  We were to use the tangle Groovy this week - a really fun tangle to use.... loved it! I was really happy with the tile that emerged from this week (from the blog post with the instructions, I was also inspired to use Sanibelle again - a bit of a revisit!).

Sadly, I've had to take down my pattern "Starburst" because it's an already published pattern ("Hemp" in Totally Tangled).  Thanks so much to Linda at tanglepatterns for entertaining it and to Karen Lynn for identifying it.  I'll keep working on a new pattern to be submitted soon!

Duotangle - Strircles and Hybrid

Back again - it's been awhile!  I've been so busy, today was the first chance I'd had to pick up a pen to tangle since my last post. 

Laura's challenge this week is one of my favourite types - I love duotangles!  This week, Hybrid and Strircles were on the list.... Hybrid takes me back to my vacation in Hawaii because it was the woven pattern on our patio furniture.  Makes me smile every time I see it!
The hands were a little shaky today (not sure why, but they're worse today than usual lately), so some of the lines are a little wobbly, but overall I really like this tile.  They're both such fun tangles!  Hope I get to another one for Monday!
