String Thing 32

This week, Adele - on Tickled to Tangle - gave us a challenge that I found quite difficult. I didn't warm to any of the tangles...though the names might have had something to do with that! I mean, 'Warped Eggs', 'Worms' and 'Warts and Wobbles' are not the most elegant choices for the names of tangles!

However, this is not Adele's fault! She gave us a string that was simple, straight forward and uncomplicated - a 'back to basics' she called it.

....and so it was.

Our patterns were all beginning with 'W' - and could include those in the following list:

Warangaie - Sandra Strait
Warble - a Zentangle® pattern
Warped Eggs - Livia Chua
Warts and Wobbles - Cindy Straight
Wired - Suzanne McNeill, CZT
Wirly Bird - Cathy Clifford
Worms - Carolyn

I used all the tangles and have since used 'Worms' again as it can actually look very elegant - particularly in white on black. I didn't make as much of it as I would have liked on my submission but we live and learn. Indeed, it was Annemarie over on Anne's Tangle Blog who made me feel I should send my tile to Adele, even though I didn't like it very much. The pleasure is seeing all the submissions together on Monday (evening for me) and enjoying the similarities, differences and variations.

So here is mine:

Hope you'll visit Adele on Monday or Tuesday to see all the entries.


  1. Well Annie, your tile is quite pretty after all. Glad you did join in. Thanks for mentioning my name.
    When I saw some other entries, I wondered why I did not think of certain things I could have done. There are some really great tiles there.
    Have a great, sunny day.

    1. Thank you Annemarie - there's a lovely selection this week and I agree - some things seem so obvious and perfect that I can't imagine why I didn't think of the same! I still think your's looked really lovely there with it's beautiful colourwash. Axxx


I read everyone's comments and am delighted that you took the time to share your views. Thank you! Ax
