the diva's Weekly Challenge #113: String Theory v. XXIV "Hip to be Square"

These weekly challenges are really one of the nicest things about Mondays for me, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.  Since I haven't been able to get any classes, this gives me some assignments to work on (reminds me of my creative writing classes).

I struggled a lot with this one.  I jumped in so fast that I sort of missed the gist of the string.  Instead of a square inside a square inside a square...I put a lot of smaller squares inside the one big one.  And I hated it.  Really.


However, I remembered that while I am not curing cancer here, there must be some good to it.  And sure enough, I found that this is the best "Hypnotic" I've ever managed, and I really like the "Chard" variant I came up with.  So, it wasn't a total loss.

After a couple more false starts, I eventually came up with this one.

I love Linda Dawson's new tangle "Miasma" so much I almost monotangled it here. Not my finest work, but even after all the fuss, I really got some good meditative time in on this.  So, once again, thanks for the inspiration, Ms. Diva!

This weekly challenge from Laura (a.k.a. the diva) can be found here.


  1. Two beautiful and very different tiles. The second is my favorite!

  2. Never give up, that's the spirit!! Your second piece is stunning! However I really like what you did the first time, this could easily be the subject of another Challenge....
