"It's a String Thing" #302 - A Very Happy Sixth Birthday!

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

"It's a String Thing" challenges began on August 13, 2013, which means we have a birthday to celebrate!

6 years, 
302 strings, 
nearly 1,000 tangles, 
9,000+ tiles, and 
hundreds and 100's of "It's a String Thingers" from 36 different countries - 
and we are still going strong.  


That calls for a celebration, doesn't it?

Let's begin with our traditional birthday string, this time with six candles ~

As with past years, this is my step out for drawing the string in one continuous line.  Please pencil in the string (pictured in Step 4) in a way comfortable for you. 

The tangles we will use include ~

Decoo by Ria Matheussen, CZT

Firecracker by Suzanne McNeill, CZT

Jonqal by Maria Thomas

Joy by Joyce Block, CZT

That group of tangles should give us more than enough contrast to work with, but please feel free to substitute, and/or add more if you wish.

If you would like to view the birthday celebrations from previous years, here are the links ~

Simply pencil in the string line and begin.
Keep in mind that the string is a suggestion and let the tangles lead the way.

  1. Wondering how my tangling family is doing? The weekly challenge news is late. Maybe I missed something? Praying all is well .
