"It's a String Thing" #144

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

This past Sunday was Mother's Day.  Click here to read my post about it from two years ago that includes a brief history of the celebration.

Since it seemed to sneak up on my this year, let's take this week to tangle something a bit MOM related.

We begin with this string ~
IAST #144 M for Mom by Adele Bruno, CZT

The tangles we will use this week are:

4MOM by Jane Eileen Malone, CZT
A very versatile tangle with MOM in mind...

Hollyhock by Jason Lau is a CZT
I like to try newer patterns and found this one to be interesting - reminiscent of other tangles, yet unique.  It has a nice organic feel without being overtly flower-like.

To access step outs for the patterns, click on their names or visit TanglePatterns.

Simply pencil the string line onto your tile and tangle away! Keep in mind that string lines are suggestions and let the patterns lead the way.

* Challenges are posted on Tuesdays.
