ready for Christmas

This week’s It’s a String Thing challenge looks so Christmas-y!

Congrats, Adele, on getting your house ready for Christmas so early. I’m ready with the Christmas music!  My husband and I pulled out the Christmas music just before Thanksgiving and are dancing the holidays away. We’ll be decorating a tree just outside our window (because we don’t have enough room for a tree in our RV).

pipe dream

More “finish my tile” fun from Joey this week. It’s starts with a zig-zag string and a little pipez.

jelly legs and juju beedze

Jelly legs is turning out to be a very useful pattern. It flows where you want it to go and it’s a nice accent. Here it is with ur-chen and this week’s string resource from Tangle Patterns. On the whole it looks a bit ocean-ish (like shells and fish eggs).

relaxing with keeko

I had a quiet evening and just set out to relax and create something fun. I opened my pattern book randomly and worked a few patterns from the “k” and “l” sections. I realized later that keeko was a part of this week’s diva challenge. So here’s my tile with a bit of keeko.

catch the wave

This week’s It’s a String Thing challenge uses two patterns ~ sea wave (new to me) and crescent moon (one of the first patterns I ever learned). It was fun to use a mix of old and new.
