ZenFriday - Quandry

Today's ZenFriday entry is my attempt at working on the tangle called "quandry." I like to share in process drawings and sewing projects because I think that too often we compare our "still working on it" attempts at art/whatever, with other people's finished projects. So, you get to see my mistakes and works in progress as well as the finished work.

Anyway, I don't think I've ever used this tangle before so it was interesting to see how it worked. One of my biggest challenges in drawing anything is that I have a really hard time keeping the spacing even. So much so that most of the time I don't even try to keep it consistent. I started this one at the top of the page and moved downward, quite obviously drawing more and more tightly as I worked my way down the page.

Jason thought the loose pieces at the top right looked like petals that were breaking off and flying away.

This post is linked up to the weekly Diva Challenge. You should go take a look at everyone's work over there.


  1. You did a great job with Quandary. It is a difficult one for many as it is easy for it to get away from you. Personally, I can't see straight after a couple of rounds, so I rely on a grid so I don't make myself crazy! I think the change in size is an added bonus and looks quite purposeful.

  2. I like this tile and I LOVE the petals to fly away!
