Welcome back!
I have been admiring all of your challenges in this series!
You all produce such stunning work.
I don't believe that I could produce a challenge that would totally stump you.

The last 2 weeks of June are always busy
as we finish up school, work and activities
so I will be doing a catch up post soon.
(you must be getting tired of me saying that!?)

This week we are continuing with our circle string series.
Here is the string for today . . .




 It has a cat's eye look to it in this position
but that doesn't mean that you can't turn it anyway that suits you!

We're going to use the tangle


Feel free to add other tangles of your choice.
Enjoy the last week of June and thank you all for participating!

Ooh!  Today I have come up with a challenge
that you will either love . . . or hate!

We are continuing with our
and here is today's string



And the tangle I have chosen for you to include is


 . . . but wait!
Now for the challenging part . . .

You cannot use Maryhill in the centre circle.
(was that a groan I just heard?!) ;o)

I know it's the most obvious choice
but that's why this is a challenge.  ha ha!

You can use other tangles of your choice in addition to Maryhill if you like.

Being creative people I know that you can think outside of the box,
but can you think outside of the circle?!

Have a great week.  Looking forward to seeing your challenges!

circle string challenge #117

I gave this one two shots
but I'm not happy with either one.

It's funny that most of you said how zenful this tangle was
and being that I love Puf
I thought I would love it too but . . .

ya, not so much. :o(

Anyhoo, it's still good to try things even though they don't live up to your expectations.
(perhaps having expectations was the problem?!)
 Maybe after this crazy month is over I'll give it another try,
when I'm feeling more zenful.

So here they both are, one dark one light. 




The dark one with Betweed, Gotcha and N'Zeppel.
The lighter one with Fescu.

I enjoy seeing all of your challenges,
they add welcome bits of creative inspiration to my less creative days.

Thanks so much,

Happy Monday!
I really enjoyed seeing the first of your circle string challenges!
Today I have the second string for you.


A large circle with 3 smaller circles inside, quite simple
 but I think it will be fun if we include the tangle


This tangle is like Puf but slightly different.
It's new to me and maybe to you too?
 Feel free to add more tangles if you like.

 I hope that you enjoy the challenge.

circle string series challenge #116


Yah!  I managed to completed the first

 I'm so sorry that I haven't been submitting any challenges lately, we're in the last month of school, soccer, work, etc. and it's been hard to find time to sit down long enough to pick up a pencil.
And when I do finally sit down I often fall asleep! lol

For the circle string series I'm going to be using:
 ~ brown circle tiles
~ brown and black Micron pens
~ white and terracotta Prismacolor pencils
~ white Gelly Roll pen
~ HB pencil and blender

After rotating the circle several times,
I found that my string is now upside down
 but I'm OK with that.

Hope you are having a wonderful week!

Many thanks to everyone who said
how much they enjoyed the last challenge series!
Your enthusiasm for the Roman Numeral Strings made me so happy,
I hope that you enjoy this next series of challenges just as much!

Here's how the idea came about . . .
 I recently noticed a pattern forming in the objects that were catching my eye.
I think it started with these fabric buckets I made from scraps of fabric and mayamade's nesting bucket pattern.


The fabric was given to my Mom by her cousin about 6-7 years ago, found in her stash from who knows when (possibly as far back as the 80's by the looks of the pattern?!)  My Mom sewed my daughter a pair of pants from the cordoroy fabric and my daughter loved them so much that she had to
make a second pair when she outgrew them.
We affectionately called them the "spotty pants".
I found the left over scraps when I was recently downsizing my fabric stash and I thought it would be perfect to make some cute fabric buckets.

Since then I noticed that more and more circular patterns were catching my eye, so a couple of weeks ago I began sketching out some circular strings for us to use as our next challenge.

Here is the first of 10 circular strings.


 These challenge do not have to be drawn on a circle tile, you can draw the string onto a square tile, an ATC or into your sketchbook, it's entirely up to you.

I will choose 1 tangle for you to use but feel free to add more, these do not have to be 'monotangles' (unless you want them to be!)
This week I'd like us to use the tangle


I have been so inspired by your collections I have decided to do this series of challenges all on brown circle tiles for a Renaissance look.
I'm really excited about this series and I hope that you are too!
Happy Monday!
