While Birdie and I were off exploring the world, a new tangle came to Maria. And, of course, it is the Diva challenge this week. Maria’s work, as always, was gorgeous. And it also looks a bit like gourds. Hence, the name: gourdgeous.
As usual, I thought I remembered the step-outs. But, as often is the case, none of mine were turning out “right.” As you can see, there are quite a few things in this tile that are at all not gourd-like. I finally broke down and went to read the instructions. Can you spot the one I did when I followed the step-outs?
I thought I was going to hate this piece when I started. I certainly wouldn’t call it gourdgeous, but I think it ended up kind of cute. Hope you like it.
I brought a ton of art supplies on our trip but every time I thought about using them, it felt like work. I guess that is me feeling guilty for not working on a new book. In any case, It feels good to be back tangling.
