Duotangle with Punzel and Well and 'L' Tangles

I can never remember which number challenge we've got to....I thought this was 140. Not that it matters!

Another wonderful challenge from Laura the Diva this week...number 167 (maybe I'll remember for next week). A duo tangle using Punzel and Well. My jaw dropped at Punzel as I have only made one miserable attempt at this particular tangle and have never touched it since! So a real challenge.

Well, I remember Well well from a previous challenge and I found it difficult to start with but managed to get into it - it was part of another duo tangle, with Peanuckle. You do push us, Laura!

I have worked at improving Punzel and in the end, I am rather pleased with my attempt. I left Well pretty well alone, making it the border and allowing a few 'single' editions to join Punzel in the main tile.

Many thanks Laura - I really can't wait to see what others have done with this Challenge!

In addition to the Diva Challenge this week, I have done a tile for 'Tackle it Tuesday' over on Cheryl's Artful Creations blog. We're working our way through the alphabet and this week, we're at 'L'.

This is my 'L' tangle, which I really enjoyed, discovering some new tangles and using many of them to follow a string that I made up.

Hope you like it!

Leaflet, Laced, Lazy Eights, LaBel, Lantern Pho and LinQ - and lots of white space!

    1. Thanks Heather. I don't often do borders but thought I'd use a simplified Well - it was very Zen doing it! Axxx

  10. Nice Well frame. I also think that the red looks great. Not sure that I could do Punzel that way.
