Ins and Outs of Mi2


Yesterday I learned that I had another roofer's nail in one of my car tires. This is the second one in 6 months. So, the best laid plans of the day completely turned around, and I was gifted with sitting at the tire center with nothing to do but tangle! What a lucky girl, and I MEAN that! Lately my days have been quite full, and a little tough to set aside some time for tangling. I'm slowly seeing times in my new schedule where I can fit it in, but this opportunity was an added bonus! Plus, the Diva Challenge presented the tangle, Mi2 (created by CZT Mimi Lempart), which I did try a while back and loved, but hadn't played with it since. And, since I'm STILL into the aura play, I couldn't resist adding it to this tangle. And of course, I had to 'puf' it. I was a little disappointed that they had my tire fixed in record time, and I didn't get to sit and finish, but when the day was finished, I continued the first, and did two more before I went to bed. I have to say, I slept really well!! I love this art form.

  5. So interesting! I like the way you leave white space. For some reason it makes me uncomfortable and i have to cover every piece of space. Your second reminds me of a taffy pull. The third, very Asian like bamboo baskets??
