AEDM #4 - MOVING DAY: a new tangle!

Last November we moved; it was an excellent idea. We'll probably be moving again in the next few months. I don't recall at what point I had time to sit and tangle for a while, but I did, and came up with this tangle. I haven't used it much since... a year ago. I rediscovered it recently and decided to do it for today's tangle for Art Every Day Month. See the tile I did using Moving Day following the drawing instructions.
Don't overthink the stripes. You don't need the same number of stripes in each square. The interesting thing happens when they mismatch at the corners.

Here's today's tile. I also tried Moving Day with stippling instead of black. Be forewarned: it takes longer, and I think I prefer it with black anyway. Gewgle is in Sandy Bartholomew's book Yoga for Your Brain.
Tangles: Gewgle, Keenees, Moving Day, Opus (with Aura)


  1. Love the look of Moving Day! I agree that all black and white is so much more powerful.

    Kinda makes me feel like I have had a few glasses of wine...! Love it.

  2. This is lovely, great to see your work, very inspiring. Have a blessed weekend. Amanda

  3. I like moving day... looks like a true moving day organized chaos. thanks for sharing...

  4. Thanks for sharing. I prefer the stippling much better. While the solid black IS more powerful, honestly it messes with my eyes. **

  5. I love this (found via Linda Harmers TanglePatterns blog).
    I love the way it looks when complete and I love the tangle you have used to illustrate its use. Wonderful.
    Hope you move went well.

  6. Wow! That is one dynamic tangle. It's so beautifully graphic--I'm really going to enjoy using it. Thank you so much! (And, BTW, kudos for coming up with a new one on moving day.)

  7. This tangle is so timely for me as I am moving soon and I feel 'dizzy',(as the design signifies). I really like the one that is stippled; it's more 'artsy'. Great tangle, thank you.

  8. I think I have another new favorite - thanks for sharing!

  9. I loved it a few years ago and I still love it. :-)
