Week 29: String Theory IV

This week's Diva challenge is brought to us by guest tangler and CZT, Sue Jacobs. Sue presented a genius idea for creating a string. Read about it here.
   I love this idea and will no doubt keep have my handy dandy string-maker nearby for those days when I need a jump start string-wise. The string is often the first 'hang-up' if I'm not feeling very "let-it-go-ish". 
   I used a very thin beading thread, that had some curl to it, so most of my string lines were very roundish. I'm going to try something flimsier next try to see what happens.
   As I am often tangling at my computer desk, I had been looking up seed pod images on the internet. I came across a desert rose seed pod photo that immediately sparked a tangle, so that is the first tile. I don't know what to call it, so anyone with any ideas, please feel free to make a suggestion.




Thanks, Diva, Sue, and the lovely desert rose.

  5. Love this tangle, Carole! Just as each new tangle is a little creative present, and each little pod looks like it's gift wrapped, how about "giftpod"? - Lesley S-G

  8. Very fun. Yet another tangle I'll have to try!
    Maybe Drose?
    But they do look like both windows and gifts. And since the seed pods are designed to float on the wind, how abour Wind Gift?

  10. I showed someone the tile, and they offered the name, Shwindig... a combination of "schwing" (hmmm) and "shindig". Let's just say they had their reasons:)
