Hitched and Tami


The challenge this week is to try a new tangle pattern - it's called 'Hitched' from Heidi Sue. I had a lot of fun playing with variations. We've finally started getting some snow (along with incredible cold) so I was thinking snowflakes when I did this. Hitched can be done in a curve but it's easiest to do it in a line or border. So it worked well to form my snowflake. I started with a white gelly roll pen and added blue colored pencil for shading. The picture below shows an early stage. I had the basic pattern in but I knew I needed to keep going. I added a few more tangleation details to Hitched. 

Then I decided to add something to the outer areas. SuzyMosh  has started a challenge called "That's new to me". You can find her blog here. She is encouraging us to find tangle patterns we haven't used before, and add them to our work. This week they are to start with the letter 'T'. I found a tangle pattern called 'Tami". I used a tangleation of it around my zendala.
I took this picture late at night with the desk lamp. So the quality of the picture isn't too good. Sorry!

  4. Your hitched tile reminds me of a delicate Delft china plate. I guess there is that snow thing too. I'm sitting here in Philadelphia watching the snow flakes come down---as we speak, so I'd rather think of it as reminiscent of a Delft china plate. In any case, it's nice!
