The Diva's Challenge 139: I am not gonna lie.

When one of my tangling friends and fellow CZT, Jean,  sent me a message last week congratulating me for the diva having picked my tangle for this week's challenge, which is how I found out, I am not gonna lie. I was pretty stupid excited about it. And what is even more exciting is to see how many different ways it was used. You can get the links to them on her blog here.
You know that old saying, When life gives you lemons, make lemonade? I have been making gallons of it for a few months. And right at the end of it, here came the diva. It was perfect timing. Life is almost back to normal, whatever that is, right? SO THANK YOU, DIVA! 
I know some people think it is a hard one to draw. I have only taught it once in a class and everyone picked up on it right away. It is a tangle of opposites. There is more than one way to draw it, but I chose to publish the one with the least steps, keeping in mind the rule for  6 or less. If I could break it down into more steps, maybe people who struggle with it would see how easy it really is. But a challenge is a challenge, and I so happy so many people stuck with it.
Seeing as how it is my tangle, I thought I should add to Mr. Linky's Magical Widget machine, too, so here is mine, done on fabric. I have been doing a lot of tangling on canvas and twill, including shoes, aprons, and totebags. So, I have a close up of the 8's section on apron and the whole apron.
Thanks again, Everyone!


  1. Like your 8s on the apron. I think the tangle is a challenge only be cause of keeping aware of where you are. I put mine of an angle and this did not help. It is a great tangle. I did not see a picture of the whole apron.

  2. Crazy computer needs a time out. The apron is there now. Sorry!

  3. The apron is great and so is your 8s. I had a hard time learning how to do it, and still need to look at the steps, but I alraedy used it again. Thank you.

  4. I loved the tangle once I figured it out. I used a grid instead of the dots to do it though, I must admit. It was easier for my head to wrap around. Nice apron!

  5. I also have to admit that I used a grid to master this tangle. But once I figured it out, it fell into place fairly easily. Actually, the second one I did for the Diva's Challenge is one of my all time favorites.
