"It's a String Thing" #141

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

In celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's 90th birthday this week, we will tangle away with a royal theme.  Don't you just love a party?

We begin with a string that is actually the number 90 (I know, I know, so clever, isn't it?!) ~

The tangles for the challenge include ~

Queen's Crown by Suzanne McNeill, CZT
The link to Suzanne's step out is no longer operable on TanglePatterns, but the tangle is easy enough to recreate.  
A similar (unnamed) tangle is pictured in Sandy Bartholomew's Totally Tangled on page 51.  

I drew this border on a poster I use in my classes.  It was inspired by Sandy's work ~
I will post Tips for Tangling this royal tangle on Thursday - stay tuned! (Alliteration makes me smile.)

This is a bit of a stretch for the theme...but it's long been a favorite.
