I'm tangling from A to Z - C is for...
...Cockles 'n' Mussels

(Pssst... new here? Welcome to Alphabet Salad! For some background on how and why I got involved in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, check out this post... and, if you'd like to catch up on my progress to date, all of my challenge posts are tagged with Tangling from A to Z. Glad you stopped by, and hope you'll return!)


Tangle Practice

Today's tangles were a joy... but were they ever time-consuming! I am having to get up earlier and earlier in the morning just to get everything done and posted before I have to start work. Oh, well... who needs sleep, right?!

Border & String

Just to carry on with the whole A to Z theme, I thought I'd make each day's "string" resemble the appropriate letter for the day. I can't always promise that the finished tiles will look anything like the letters - it all depends on which tangles I'm using and how the drawing evolves. We'll just have to see what happens!
