I've been having so much fun seeing other people using the tangles I (or Ruth!) design, that I'm going to keep it up a little longer. With the Easter themes of rebirth and renewal, I thought this tangle would be an appropriate offering for Easter Monday. During my CZT training, one assignment was to look about our surroundings and devise a tangle from our observations. This is one of several I came up with. It has its origins in the gigantic braided rag rug on the floor of the bedroom I was in. I've always loved rag rugs - hooked, crocheted, braided - and I've always loved the way fabric that could no longer be used up or made to do would have one final incarnation as a rug. I always tucked my children into bed so they were "snug as a bug in a rug". I've even used a woven willow paddle to beat rag rugs on a laundry line for my Dutch AND Scottish grandmothers! This tangle is also very easy to adjust to suit your artwork by adapting the segments via further inset patterns and visual textures - have fun and play!
