Red Thread Challenge

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break." -Chinese proverb

The Diva's newest challenge asks us to use a red thread as the string in our tile. As always we are able to interpret it as we want. As I was thinking about thread. I thought about the various quilts we have in our home. Most of them were made by family members. They were either passed down or made specifically for us. I know they were made with love. So for me, the threads in those quilts represents the love and connections we have with our family. 

This tile was done on a traditional 3 1/2 inch tile - and yes - for the tangles I used a 005 Micron pen. The red pen for the thread is a 05 so that shows up a little better.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with their family and loved ones.
