Joey's Challenge #220

Joey’s Challenge this week brings us back to PUF, 
which was the focus of the last Diva’s challenge.
PUF is one of my favorite Tangles. There are a few 
different ways in which to do it; and I’ve used 2 of 
them in this tile.

Take a look at Joey’s site to see the other entries, 
and maybe try one yourself.

Joey's #219 and IAST #246

I posted 2 challenges last week, but somehow the 
links didn't work. I hope I did it right this week. 

Joey's Challenge #219 is another Finish My Tile, 
Front + Center, using Poke Root.

Here's mine, adding Diva Dance, and using Auras:

 And over at It's a String Thing, Adele is featuring a 
new technique by Helen Williams called String Grid.
I really love this technique, but haven't completely 
mastered it yet. But the way that Helen lays it out, 
there are a few steps; and you don't have to use all
of them. Which is what I did; only went to the 2nd
stage. And here's my attempt:
 

Be sure to check out all the entries @ Tickled to Tangle, on Monday afternoon, when Adele Bruno posts them. Although, actually, it's usually more Monday evening before they're posted. The vast differences that can be achieved using the same tangles on the same string are truly incredible. And, if you've a mind to try a String Thing yourself, check back on Tuesday afternoon, or evening, when she offers the new ones.

Diva #364; and Joey #218

The Diva's challenge this week is to do 
a monotangle of PUF, a fun tangle from 
CZT Carol Ohl. This tangle starts out one 
way, and ends up completely different.
Here's mine:

Be sure to visit the Diva's site to see the other wonderful entries; it's amazing how different all the responses are. Maybe you'll be inspired to try out one of the Challenges yourself.

 Joey's challenge was also a fun one. 
Finish My Tile/Front + Center, using Dicso

I really like this one; I kept coming up with 
different ideas; but this is the one I used:

It’s a String Thing #244, and more

 It’s a String Thing’s Challenge #244 is to use a 
star-like String;

and the Tangle Auraknot.

Here’s mine:

Behind the Auraknot I did a layer of Betweed, and
behind that layer, I just used inner auras.

Be sure to check out all the entries @ Tickled to Tangle, on Monday afternoon, when Adele Bruno posts them. Although, actually, it's usually more Monday evening before they're posted. The vast differences that can be achieved using the same tangles on the same string are truly incredible. And, if you've a mind to try a String Thing yourself, check back on Tuesday afternoon, or evening, when she offers the new ones.

I also made 2 Birthday Cards: 

One for  my husband, using the Zen Button technique;
not too successfully, it seems; I haven't quite mastered it:

and one for a cousin’s 99th:

I think this is the most tangling I've done in one week
for a long time. I hope it's the beginning of 
getting my Zen back.

Diva's Challenge #262: UMT: SOMNEE

Well, it took me 6 weeks, but here I am, trying again.

Still not anywhere near "Normal" yet; but I AM trying.
And this was the first Challenge that I was actually
able to complete. I wasn't too crazy about SOMNEE
at first, but it turned out to be one that I could work 
with. I was going to try using color in some of the 
larger Orbs, but I ran out of steam.

So for what it's worth: here's my SOMNEE:
