At first sight and second opinion

When I first read the documents before I go to the service in court, I often belive this is clear, this is what has happened. When I am there, during the session, it will be obvious that reality is not as simple as that. Very often I have changed my opinion when it comes to the end. Today this was the case. When you meet the persons involved you get so much more information. The picture is wider and maybe not at all what I saw at the first sight.

The same thing often happens in tangling. The string, or maybe the pattern in a challenge seems so clear and it just could not give any alternatives. But starting the process, breathing, getting in to the zone and let it flow, that changes all of that! Each pattern gives so much more information to the brain while working on it. The possibilities will be there. Unfortunately this doesn´t mean I can see the qualities at once! Sometimes I have to put the tile aside and look at it another day to grab the second opinion.



This tile is for Joey´s challenge no. 128. The start was a tangle called Villers #2 by someone named Baez. Had not seen it before but it looked much alike some other patterns I know of. Joey had placed the first part of it in the center. But as I needed something stable today I went for it. And it got me! I do love geometry so the patterns I added were gridbased as well: Sand by Adele Bruno and Dex. This is not a spectacular tile, but I felt so calm doing it and I appreciate the result. So thank´s Joey for this beautiful challenge! I loved to do it!

I love the clean illustration of this tile. I especially love how you have drawn "Sand". I really like that pattern but I've only ever used it once in one of Adele's string challenges. It's one of those "High Focus" patterns and can be very time consuming, but you've used only one fragment of it and it works beautifully;-)

I understand very well what you mean when you wrote "I felt so calm doing it"... Somestimes it is so refreshing to draw carefully an uncomplicated tile just in black and white and yes the result is beautiful!!! I agree with your words about the opinions.

Sometimes symmetry and balance is just what you need. This is beautiful Anita!

Thank's Michele! I have saved Sand since Adele had it in her challenge, wanting to get back to it! But I Love that pattern!

Hi Anita, I really liked your description of your process here. Very helpful. I haven't seen "Sand" before and now I will have to go look it up. I love the balance in this tile, and the contrasts of the highly organic Villers 2 with the other two tangles you chose. It's calming to look at it.

Thank's Ria for stoppning by! Maybe it is like this: when things are moving fast or balance in life is shaking, then geometry and symmetry is needed at the most!

I agree with you about our changing perceptions. This tile seems to have taken on a life of its own, and you calmly explored it. Wonderful!
