7th of March

The right thing to do today was to sit down and tangle along... The wind is so cold outside, the clouds are low and it is snowing, snowing..


Nothing could be better than try a tangle new to me, Edgar (Jody Genovese). This tangle was in the challenge "It´s a string thing" last week. I am not into challenges right now, I have a lot of challenges around me anyway. But soon I´ll participate I belive. Edgar got company from Shard (Carole Ohl), Vega, Florz and something down in the right corner that I don´t know the name of...

Well there are challenges and challenges. The Diva this week has Amphora (Lily Moon) as a challenge. I have seen that pattern before, but I haven´t used it. Today seemed to be the occasion, so here it is:


It almost went into a monotangle! But as I used string 245 (Barbara Finwall), there was a circle in the middle which begged for a black gem and in the background Cheesecloth (Suzanne McNeill) was my choice. I loved to do Amphora, though I admit it wasn´t love at first sight. A very relaxing pattern and a pattern that can be used in many ways!

I really like the cheesecloth as a background choice. So simple, but very effective. Beautiful tile!

I like spiral forms and it was a bright idea to use Amphora in a spiral: relaxing to draw, relaxing to see and beautiful result!!!

Wow! this is lovely Anita. I'm really inspired by all of the round Amphoras I'm seeing. This is an inspiration and I love Cheesecloth and never use it;-)

Beautiful! 😍 You make it look sooo easy, while in fact what you did is sooo DIFFICULT! (I know because I tried. 😅)
