One thing that absolutely had to be done was a new design that I had been toying with since just before the holidays. I am teaching a class in 2 weeks and they had wanted something heart-themed for Valentine's Day. I came up with a ladybug and put it on a needlebook.
I have been keeping up with the Diva Challenges even though I haven't posted them. And the first challenge of the year gave me an idea for a new (to me anyway) tangle. The challenge was to use Diva Dance and Auraknot. The last was because it (sorta) sounds like her name, Laura. It occurred to me that L-Aura would be even more like her name and I doodled around and came up with this:
For that first challenge of the year my response was:
|Duo Tangle: Auraknot and Diva Dance|
The second challenge was a back to basics challenge. So, white tile, black pen.
|Tangles Used: Pop Cloud, Arc Flowers, and Nzeppel|
This week's challenge is to use the logo for the Moebius Syndrome Foundation as a string. The Diva's younger son has this syndrome and each year there is a challenge to raise awareness.
|Tangles Used: Wist and Lazy Eights|
So remember to color the internet purple on Sunday, January 24th to raise awareness for Moebius Syndrome!
