"It's a String Thing" #245

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

Just two more days until the end of this very merry month of May - already.
June arrives on Friday and I must confess that I have been looking forward to it for weeks.
Why the anticipation?
Of all things, here in the United States, it is National Donut Day.

I have been drooling at the thought of a good splurge, ready to give up any self-discipline for the sake of this tasty celebration.  It wasn't until I did a bit of research that I found that National Donut Day really has historical roots and that this year marks its 101st anniversary.  It is quite a sweet history, too.

Here is a video from YouTube that covers a brief introduction and a highlight from last year's celebration ~

It ties in so nicely with our Memorial Day IAST #244 from last week, doesn't it?

All this talk of a sweet treat led to this string ~

...donuts, donut holes, eclairs, cinnamon rolls...YUM!

The tangles we will use include ~

Stircles by Molly Hollibaugh, CZT
This is a high contrast tangle.  Scroll down the page passed the step out to view Maria and Molly's examples of using tangles to fill Stircles spaces.

Tattle by Milde Weiss, CZT
This tangle looks like sprinkles.  Donuts - and life - are better with sprinkles.

This was just too good to pass up. (Pun intended!)

While I've had donuts on my mind for way too long and I referenced them here, there is no obligation to resemble the tasty treat in your tangling.

Note: Across the United States, many sweet shops will offer free donuts on Friday - enjoy one if you can and have a happy time tangling!
