It is hard to see how much this one 'broke free' of the string because there is little visible of the original string. Basically the top boundary of the string was used as a 'suggestion' of where to begin to end the Hill and Dale (a pattern I keep meaning to publish the steps for-let me know if you are interested). In the bottom section the Huggins (or whatever it is) 'leaked out' into the next section and also did not strictly follow the boundary of its own section. There were only the three sections to the string.
This one clearly shows the boundaries, but also leaks out of them. The Kunstler leaks into both the Lap and the outside. The Meer leaks a little into the Lap and the Printemps floats out of bounds as well. The Lap actually dictated lines in both the Meer and the Kunstler as well. I like this one the best - see my need to 'stay in the line' shows even here where I am trying to break free!!
Oh, and imagine my surprise when, the other day while surfing someone else's Pinterest board, I found this little banner for Linweaving.com with my three patterns on it; Groovy, Islette (spelled wrong) and Brainz. I don't think I ever published the breakdown for two of them and had never even heard of the website. I am not even a member of it, yet I am apparently one of the 'designers'! What a surprise when there are so many people much more deserving of that designation than I! I was also a little taken aback that I am apparently on the sight in the form of my patterns and had never even heard of it. I mean, I know what I publish on this blog is 'out there' for whatever purpose anyone has in mind... but I was just surprised to actually see it happen and without my knowledge. Not sure how I feel about it actually, I am still processing. I guess the really nice thing about the whole experience is that I ran across some really great 'new to me' patterns by people I knew about before but had somehow managed to miss (like Lap, by Lizzie Mayne). Now I need to draw out the breakdowns and add them to my file.
Hope everyone has a great end of the week and weekend!
Two beautiful tangles, both capture the challenge perfectly! Love your take on this challenge, both ways!ReplyDelete
De 1 is verry nice but is more a zia? The 2 is very well done! I love your treads and necles? breaking out!!!!!!ReplyDelete
I love both your zia's! The first one is very original. I love Kunstler in the second comning out.ReplyDelete
Both of these are wonderful, you really captured the Freedom and movement of this challenge. Love how your little Lampion is dragging the whole ZIA in your first, your second has such wonderful texture and connectivity!ReplyDelete
I love both of them but especially the first one, very nice what you did there!ReplyDelete
You did it!! You broke out in great fashion! These are both just lovely but the second one is my favorite.ReplyDelete
Your designs turned out fantastically. I love how they are just reaching outside of the box! Great response to the challenge!ReplyDelete
Very interesting composition.ReplyDelete
Both are great designs. Most I admire the way you make it look so simple and yet so breaking free with a great shading technique.ReplyDelete
both tiles are just gorgeous. I love the sense of connectedness in both.ReplyDelete
Both were great teachers for me. Familiar patterns that I have learned recently used in a very free manner. Love your work!ReplyDelete
You do such lovely work - straight strong lines and amazing shading - great choices of tangles. My fav is the second one - the way you've "leaked" into Lap is great.ReplyDelete
