Diva's Challenge #129: String Theory v. XXV: TanglelPatterns String#004

This week the challenge from the Diva was to use String #4, a string which I have used a few times before. For the uninitiated, the "String" is the guideline, or layout, on which you draw the "Tangles" or individual patterns.  To see Linda Farmer's comprehensive collection of strings, go to  and click on "Strings" up near the top. And to see the wide array of Tangle Patterns, just click on any letter of the alphabet.

 This is my first attempt at the challenge.
One of the things I've always liked about string #4 is the oval like shapes, perfect for Purk, one of my favorite tangles; although I'm not so sure I did it justice this time. I also used Sparkle for the other oval shape, and 2 versions of the new tangle, Clove, as the background. Clove is so simple and fun to draw, I think it's going to become another staple for backgrounds.

To find out more about the Diva's Weekly Challenge, and to see all the other fabulous entries, 


  1. Like the clove! That's one I haven't tried yet, so I'll have to get busy and try it, as I am always looking for good filler tangles.

  2. That´s a beautiful tile! It appears so lightly and airy. Great choice of tangles.

  3. I like your clove indeed! And I like the way you draw the string loke a rope, great!

  4. Your tangles work very nicely together. Background is great. Nicely done.

  5. The clove is like a curtain! Very pretty tile.


Thanks for visiting; please leave a comment, favorable or not. I'd love to hear your thoughts. That's how we learn and grow; and how we know someone out there is paying attention.

Have a wonderful day; see you all next time.
