And it's a very striking tangle indeed and stands pretty well on its own as a monotangle. I chose to do it as a dramatic background to the new tangle, Tropicana, that I've fallen in love with. (From Art Lady Kate - see stepouts here.)

Then, having just got the children back to school after sort of mini half-term, which is a first for Spanish schools (fiesta days coinciding with a weekend and an extra day thrown in) - I found I had a little hour to spare so I did another tile, trying out a tangle that I think I might have created all by myself! (So exciting but do tell me if this exists elsewhere.)
I saw it in a shop window and took a snap so I could detangle it. I have called it 'Lamota' - because here in Alcala la Real, we have a beautiful castle on the hill, called 'La Mota' and I wanted to link my tangle to that. It is a series of linked stars based on a line grid and can be seen in my second tile on the bottom right hand side, just above Crescent Moon.

Here it is in stepouts.
I am still a little undecided how to shade it for the best effect but if you give it a go and let me know what you think, it would be a great help!
Hope you like it!
Thanks again for dropping by!
