Monotangle

Laura Harms' challenge for this week (#11!) is to create a tile using just one tangle pattern.  Don't know if mine is an 'official' pattern, but I just got lost in all these swirls and loops - felt very mellow.....  Some Wise One of yore said, "It is better to walk one path a thousand times than to walk a thousand different paths."

This said, it is spring where I am, and being outside enjoying the warm weather is suddenly taking precedence over everything else.  I welcome and appreciate all your comments, but know it is probably warming up where you are too, and you may be busy with gardens and other outdoor projects and have no more time than I do to spend hunched over a computer.   Also, at this point, so many of us are participating in Laura's challenge that it doesn't seem possible to add a meaningful comment to each person's blog.  I'm starting to feel guilty if I don't respond to each and every one of you wonderful ZT friends (sad sigh......)  Laura probably never intended that, so am going to send a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you, and let it go at that..... at least for this week ;-0

  5. Beautiful work! As Laura said, the challenge is meant to be fun, not work. I try to comment as much as I can--but if I can't, I don't worry about it. (much, lol)

  7. Beautiful! I love the swirls. There is so much for me to learn about tangles and this is a great look.

  8. Nice and spring-like: makes me think of a large, dense flower like a hydrangea or chrysanthemum. (That was a bit of a spelling test too!)

  10. If it's not an official tangle, it should be. Love it.

  11. I can't imagine where you start with these! Do you do it in pencil first or do you just 'go for it' with the pen?

    Brilliant!

  12. Very, very nice. It's so simple that it's beautiful. BTW, there are still ugly roadside snowpiles--note the plural!--here in southeast MI. Warm? Yeh, wake me when it's June.
