Later in the day, I took a break and decided it was time for a little meditation via Zentangle, and wouldn't you know it? Out of that 20 minutes or so, a new pattern found its way out of my pen, and I felt peaceful the rest of the day. Bonus...the feeling carried over into today.
So here are my responses to this week's challenge. The first is from Monday, and I was less than thrilled with it. I just wasn't feeling it. I did enjoy using Beth Snoderly's new pattern Phen for the first time, though. I really love that pattern and will be playing with it more.
The string for this one was completely random, and the
patterns I used were
Phen, a variant of Quare, and Up and Across
And here's the tile I did last night. I don't really think it's all that much better-looking, but it felt better. Know what I mean? And best of all, I got to use my new pattern.
Random string again.
The patterns in this one: Graancirkel, Palrevo, Puf, and
my new tangle, "Grani".
I named my new tangle after my mother (that's what the kids call her, and she prefers this spelling. Maybe to her "Grani" doesn't look as old as "Granny". She may be onto something. Here's the step-out for the new pattern.
As always, PLEASE let me know if you've seen this pattern elsewhere. I would never want to steal somebody's idea. Even if it's just too similar to another pattern...TELL ME!
