It's a String Thing #64

Adele Bruno challenged us to use string 095 and the following patterns: Charlie, Owlz, Roxi and N'Zeppel. I thought it would look a bit 'busy' if I filled up every part of the string, so I decided to leave one part in white. The tile being finished, I'm not sure if it's a bit boring this way, but this is what I chose to do, so I'll stick to the idea ;-)

This week's Tackle it Tuesday challenge was to use tangles starting with T-U-E. I used Teardrop border, Uncorked and Efilys. Lovely tangles!

Diva Challenge #191: Monotangle Betweed

'Monotangle' and 'Betweed': two things I love! So, I was happy with this week's Diva Challenge :-)
I tried to pay extra attention to the shadowing part. 

Curious to see the other entries this week!

Halloween is coming up, so Joey challenged us to tangle a witch's hat. I put some Web in the background (with a spider :-) ) and used Orbs-la-Dee, PomX2, Bask-it and some fantasy flower pattern.

Diva's Weekly Challenge #190: "Pink for Ardath*"

This week, Laura asked us to use some pink in honour of Ardath, her grandmother who passed away due to complications of breast cancer.

My own gran, Alida, passed away 4 years ago at the age of 96, after having survived cancer at her 84th! She was a wonderful person who loved plants and flowers, and her favorite colour was pink. So, in honour of these two special grandmothers, I made this tile.

Tackle it Tuesday: M-O-N

This week's Tackle it Tuesday challenge is to use tangle patterns starting with M, O and N.
I tried Newell (new to me), Ogle and... NyMph... The last one was a mistake: I overlooked that I already had an N-tangle. Oops, wrong idea! Luckily there's an M in Nymph ;-)

It's a String Thing #62

Tuesday was Adele Bruno's birthday. Happy belated birthday, Adele!

As a present ;-) I used her tangle Uncorked as a monotangle. Okay, I put a tiny little bit of Tipple in it, but since this is  pattern of Adele as well, I don't think this is a problem :-)

Diva's weekly challenge #189

This weeks's challenge from the Diva is a UMT (Use My Tangle) and we're using Yuma by Tina-AKUA. Tina: I love this tangle! Thank you for sharing it with us. 

I decided to combine it with Inapod (a favorite of mine as well) and Striping. Quite like the result, it's always surprising to see what's growing out of your own hands :-)

Joey's challenge #30

Yesterday was Thanksgiving in Canada, so Joey chose 6 tangles representing things you may find on the Thanksgiving dinner table.
No Thanksgiving in the Netherlands, so plenty of time to tangle away ;-)

I chose string 126 and used all 6 tangles: Trivet, Allium, Kuke, Half Onions, Nvelope, Sunflower.
Nice challenge!

It's a String Thing #061

Adele asked us to use string 060 and patterns Moonpie, Aquafleur, River and Gutz. I don't know if I'm allowed ;-) but I turned the string upside down and this was the result:

S - U - N

This week, for Artful creations, we're tangling SUN: using the patterns Sez, Up and Across and Nymph. To me, making circles stays hard to do, so Sez was a... real challenge ;-)

Square One: Pendrills

Square One on Facebook suggested we could use Pendrills. A new tangle to me and I combined it with Mumsy and Marque. Not sure if Marque was the right choice, but Mumsy goed well together with Pendrills.

Diva's Weekly Challenge #188

This week's Diva Challenge is all about the National Coming Out Day.
To me, all people are the same, no matter what colour of skin, gender, religion, sexual preference or whatsoever one has. We all have a beating heart and no matter what path we take in life, we all want to be loved in a way that suits us. I'm glad different people have different preferences: the world would be boring when everyone would be the same...

So here's my tile, I've used patterns starting with LGBT:
Lacy, Golven, Baton and BTL Joos to cover T ;-)

Thanks to everyone who left comments in my previous challenges, it makes me really happy to read them :-)

It's a String Thing #60

Adele Bruno's 'It's a String Thing' challenge for this week was to use string #061 and 4 tangles starting with X: Xav, Xplode, X and Xeni.

Drupe - Featherfall - Fescu

Joey's weekly tangle challenge #28

Knitting - not my cup of tea ;-)
It didn't scare me to try out the tangle Knyt - although I noticed I found it almost as hard to tangle as I do to knit. I can do with a bit more practice, but right now it's allright :-)

You can see other people's Knyt-work at Made by Joey.

Diva's Weekly Challenge #187: Blind String

This week the challenge is to draw a string with our eyes closed. I decided to try and keep the string simple - in order to get not too many tiny sections. It's very nice to discover what you end up with, after opening your eyes :-)

I used Flux, Fife, Paradox and Inapod. Not sure if Paradox fits in with the other tangles, but that's how it goes ;-)

Here you can see the original string:
