A little shut eye

I really appreciate blind strings and use them a lot. I tend to be very controlled so I like something that will give me a surprise to work with. Thanks to the Diva, that's the challenge this week. I often don't do the dots and border - generally these days, but especially with a blind string - so this time I did. It's fun to have things run outside the official picture area.
Tangles: Beadlines, Bunzo, Tipple, Windfarm, Zewm
Windfarm is one of my tangles, a wild variation of Hollibaugh. You can see the drawing instructions here.

Tangles: Palrevo, Sqaro, and stripes with highlights
Squaro is a new tangle from one of my students. You can find the drawing instructions in this blog post.

I'm not as pleased with the next one. It seems too busy. But I wanted to try Meer going around a corner, and I haven't used Spinners or Marasu for quite some time.
Tangles: Beadlines, Black Pearlz, Crescent Moon,

  2. I heartily concur with the previous speaker! I'm always impressed by what you do, Margaret and you seem to think it's nothing special. It is, it is. I go all gooey just looking at the shadow under the Beadlines. Super. Smashing. Great.

  5. I like all the tiles you did. I like the optical illusions created in the second tile and the way you connected the two Meer sections with Beadlines. I also like the shadow you created for Beadlines.
