DuoTangle Well & Punzel

A super-quickie for the Diva Challenge this week. Floral-esque, of course :)

This is my freehand version of Well (check under the patterns tab for a step out).

My Punzel was pared back to Chainging to make the rose leaf (which I just realised! LOL).

School tomorrow, then a stack of gardening over the weekend.

Have a good one!



  1. Aaaww, this is just so beautifully done. You always manage to turn the challenges into something completely different. I really admire how you make things your own. and thank you very much for the freehand version of Well. It has given me hours of fun!

  2. Always fantastic again, dear Helen.
    Have a nice day, * Manja *

  3. Wow - the elegance and simplicity of this takes my breath away. Colours compliment each other so well too.

  4. So absolutely beautiful. Everything you do breaths and has lovely flow.

  5. Very creative and beautiful!!! Love it.

  6. I want this flower in my garden! :) Beautiful.

  7. wow, so simple but very elegant, i love it

  8. You amaze me with the things that you come up with. I was not brave enough to try the free hand well, but did try the circle grid. Does not flow as well as yours and had to really concentrate to keep my place.

  9. WOW !
    This is so beautiful.
    For me, you managed to capture the essence of the challenge, and the duo tangle.

  10. I agree with all the above comments! Love it!

  11. I was I inspired by your freehand Well flowers for my piece. You do beautiful work!

  12. as usual i'm blown away with your creativity!

  13. Lovely. It reminds me of the hops used in beer making.

  14. I'm at a loss for words. I think I've used up all the superlatives in previous posts. Your work is what I strive for. And this piece is no exception.

  15. may be simple but beautiful as always Helen :)

PATTERN - Faux Weave

I am getting ever closer to the finish line of my course. I have one more round of assessments to go and should be done in around 6 weeks - I cannot wait! I have enjoyed it, but am more than ready for it to be over. Thanks for hanging in there with my erratic posting over the past year or so :)

My desk, which has a myriad of buried treasure amongst the clutter  (my organisation "system" tends towards scribbling things down on scraps of paper when I get an idea then throwing them on my desk). Anyway, I had a bit of a clean up last night and it offered up this pattern ready to scan and share.

I love, love, LOVE easy patterns and how, often, from a simple construct the illusion of a more complex design can be created.

I think that "faux weave" is one such example. What could be easier than spiralling around a single line? Stack these spirals together using a square grid, alternate the direction, add some basic fill and shading and all of a sudden you have a woven effe…

String Rose PATTERN

Well, d-day has almost arrived. Tomorrow I head back to school. Where did the summer go? At least the class schedule is looking pretty light and I'll only be at school for 2- 2 1/2 days a week.

Today I want to share a really simple technique/pattern I've called "String Rose". This idea first made an appearance on the blog during the old into new challenge back in 2014. I named one of the experimentation tiles as Trentwith and though this pattern was the initial source of inspiration, my version takes a different approach. I had always meant to share the technique as it's so simple, and fun, but I just didn't get around to it. Until now! 2 1/2 years later.....haha.

O.k., here goes........

The String Rose Pattern - this shows the base technique.

As it's all done in one continuous line, I thought a little insta-video might help out:

Puffy 8's PATTERN

O.k., wow. Another year done and dusted! Can you believe it's 2017? Me? I'm still reeling.

So, where did 2016 go? I had so much that I wanted to get done here on the website, but, life takes some interesting turns and my return to full-time study in 2016 though not planned, was so interesting - I loved it!

Since term ended for our long summer break, I've been periodically working on tidying up my files and found some unpublished patterns that I hadn't got around to posting. I'll put them up over the next few weeks.

Today I'm sharing a pattern called Puffy 8's - it's another spin off of 2/8's (love that base pattern!)

You could stop at step 5 above, or keep going to fill all the spaces.
And, what's life without a bit of freeforming?
Wishing everyone a happy, productive 2017!
