The Diva's
Weekly Challenge #198: "K.I.S.S. (Keep it simple, silly!)"

The first tile is actually one I did yesterday. It's funny, I had been thinking that I wanted to just sit quietly and tangle something simple!! (The spiral came automatically)

The second is my tile from the 1st Diva Challenge, 20 Dec 2010. It's laminated and sits on my desk as a drink coaster.

Feeling Festive

The festive season has started!
Rosie Hill's playful jujubeedze sways with a party spirit while arukas has a bit of a thing happening with mooka.  Little jetties are rolling about in all directions. Oops, gneiss has gone green but tripoli has come to the rescue keeping the whole party together.

Cheers, have a jolly weekend, enjoy your festivities and keep safe!

Arukas 1-2-3

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #197: "New Official Tangle - Arukas"

Arukas tiles......crazy, straight and curvy.

If you have missed Molly's amazing new tangle, called arukas, you will find the step-outs by clicking here.
It's taken me a few attempts to find my own spin on this ticklish tangle. Today I've had a jolly good whirl pulling, stretching the threads and tying off the ends. Yes, arukas is another favourite tangle.
Thanks Molly!

All Dolled Up

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #196: All Dolled Up

Emily Classon has shared her paper doll dress ups this week. Thanks Emily, yes when I was young I loved making paper dolls and clothes with my cousin on the summer holidays. We would spend hours designing, drawing and making up stories.

(Just having a chuckle at her droopy breasts!!)

Challenge 195

The Diva's

Weekly Challenge #195: "Turning Old into New" 
The clever idea for our challenge this week comes from Sandy Hunter at tanglebucket.blogspot.com
Select favourite freeform tangles and turn them into grid tangles.

If you find tripoli tricky try this, I was surprised how well it turned out. Draw two lines for the grid and one line through the middle of each square .......fill the triangles.  I am going to do this more often.
Thanks Sandy, that's a splendid idea.
