I loved the idea for this week's Diva Challenge - a duotangle with names beginning with the letters of our initials. I choose to try two new tangles - starting with a J and an M (for my real name Jem Miller). I picked Japonica (by Sandra Strait) and Me Three (by Cindy Pope).
Both were a pleasure to learn and play with - but somehow they didn't hang together quite as well as I hoped on the finished tile. I tried again with some variations but still didn't really like the result. But in the spirit of 'no mistakes' I thought I'd share them anyway.
I like the sense of taughtness in the monochrome one - I feel like I could reach in and twang the Japonica straps - or poke my fingers through the Me Three holes.
I think that some place between the two tiles would have been preferable. I little less Me Three than the first, but sticking with the taught rather than bulging Japonica. Oh well, there's always next time!
