"It's a String Thing" #25

It's Tuesday and yes, it is your good news day!

A curious thing happened yesterday that changed the course of this week's challenge.
Linda Farmer at Tangle Patterns posted a new tangle.

Now, usually when I see a new tangle I read the post, look over the step out and examples, and then file it away for a later date when I can dedicate a block of time to learn it and play with it.

Well...I started down the same path with Lynn Mead's new pattern Fassett, (click here to view) but the more I read, the more intrigued I became.  When I studied the step out, I was fascinated by the method behind it - much like Afterglo by Carole Ohl (see my notes here). 

I was already hooked by the time I scrolled down to Lynn's examples - lovely tiles with clever variations of Fassett...way too much fun to put aside for a later date...and so...

We begin with String 025 by Hope Martin as posted on Tangle Patterns by Linda Farmer -

- and then we will only use Lynn Mead's Fassett ... a monotangle with countless possibilities for variations.

Most of all, it will be so much fun to have the time to play with this wonderful new tangle as we complete the challenge.

Simply pencil the string line onto your tile and tangle away!

This exercise is for beginner and seasoned tanglers alike. Use it as an excuse to keep up with your art work, take time for yourself, learn new patterns, share your talent...
