Tangle challenges

This week I'm back at work after the school holidays, back at the gym after a break, back at home with only one bathroom. The main bathroom may be finished in the next week or two. It's looking good. Would really, really like it to be finished though.

I have been drawing but the tile is a very detailed Opus tile that I don't want to rush. It will be ready next week.

Diva #325 - Peanuckle


Guest blogger Jessica encouraged us to love the Peanuckle. Sorry, Jess, but Peanuckle and I are not made for each other at all. 

I tried twice and in a notebook but it just doesn't feel comfortable or look good when I draw it.

Here are my tiles anyway.

This is Arthur getting involved as I do some lesson prep today. Wish he would choose more convenient times for a cuddle and attention. It's very hard to type with a cat on the keyboard.





Have a great week and thanks for dropping by.

I applaud you for stepping out of your comfort zone, trying peanuckle and posting the pics. Great job! I especially appreciate the plump S shapes in the second tile and how it looks so much like a basket. Play with this tangle every once in a while and see if it grows on you. Hope so!
And thanks for participating in the Diva Challenge this week. :-)

I hate everybody who mastered pea-nuckle in this challenge and posted incredible tiles. Yes, you, you Miss L, are one of them. ARGH!!! Well, I feel a lot better now and can go back into my corner to sulk some more.

There seems to be so many ppl who don't like Peanuckle, I haven't started yet but I don't remember not liking it. The tiles so far all look great to me? I usually found the only time my cats wanted to be with me was when I was doing something.

Peanuckle seems to have given a lot of tanglers fits this week. I am so impressed with everyone who gave it their best shot though. Yours turned out beautifully! Hugs to Arthur :)

Miss L: Your tangle of Peanuckle looks great. It looks like peanuts all hooked together like they are supposed to. I think you did a great job on them, don't beat yourself up...you do fine work.

Well you nailed it with this pattern and I'm mildly envious. However, having seen this, I think I may go back and give it another try.

Well, in spite of your difficulty with Peanuckle your results are wonderful! I especially love the 2nd one;-) Ha! Arthur and my Aimee are two peas in a pod. Gotta be right up in the middle of your business 😼😍

I agree with the comments that you did well with Pea-nuckle. I usually tell my students that what i show them is not so they can copy it. Make it your own. That is what you did.

Despite your protestations, by your second tile, you were right there with a very nice tanglelation of Peanuckle that serves its vase purpose admirably. (If you did not intend a vase purpose---nevermind. ;-)

I think you hurt Arthur's feelings. He appears to be giving you a feline stink eye in the photo. :)

I like how wicker-y these look. Woven, like baskets. As for the cat, believe me, they know. Mom's busy? That means lap time.

Your tiles look great and I love the kitty pic ;)
