More on Weekly Challenge #155


I said in my first post this week that I thought we might end of shoveling snow again at the end of this week and boy was I right! This is what I woke up to this morning. 


 Here is a view down out street, after we were plowed out.



Here I am standing in front of the snow bank, next to the driveway. It’s actually taller than I am, even though it doesn’t show exactly that in this photo, (I am blaming the photographer, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it) and that is saying something since I am almost 6 foot.


I also would like to introduce you to a new pattern that I have deconstructed. (Drum roll…..) Here is Tropicana. I had fun last weekend figuring it out, from of all things, a lid. Hope you like it, and let me know if you post something that you used it on. I would love to see what your rendition looks like.  


  Here is a tile using it and leaving a little white space.


Have a great weekend, stay warm, and keep tangling!

  7. I just saw this tangle on Pinterest and my jaw dropped in awe - I LOVE it and am delighted it's one of your own new tangles. It is so 'architectural' and structural - AND gives some wonderful white space.
    You are obviously inspired by the huge amounts of white space around you at the moment - I hope it goes quickly and smoothly. Nothing is worse than snow that overstays its welcome.

  19. Oh, I love this pattern. I've been playing with it a lot. It makes a terrific overarch behind a garden-ish tangle, and it's a lot of fun to put depth to, creating a tunnel effect. Fun fun fun!
