"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
I was a little concerned about this challenge. As I worked on a tile it seemed as if the red "thread" was in danger of disappearing among all the black tangles. Not to worry. That delicate connection that links us to each other is stronger than that! Here are my two efforts. I tried shading around the thread to look as if it's off the paper a little. In the first, the thread looks more like a ribbon.

Lacing, Lotus Pods, 'Nzeppel, Tipple
For Art Every Day Month today, I'm incorporating some of the new tangles I've been trying recently, Clockwises and Hopscotch. I'm also trying a few that I haven't used much, Jetties, Lacing and Organza.
Cris Letourneau, this week's guest challenger, wrote about her friend Sonya who founded the charity Red Thread Promise. Cris says, "If you are inspired to help even more, I will be collecting actual tiles to be auctioned off to help raise money for the Red Thread Promise. All tiles collected will be made into a poster that will be available for purchase. Proceeds will also be used to help fund their mission. If you want to participate, you can find out how at my blog, Tangled Up in Art."
As my two tiles were lying on the desk I realized that the red threads could seem to flow from one to the other. Wouldn't it be fun if they could do that on the poster?!?
