Challenge #73 - Bridgen

      Yahoo!  My summer has officially started!  The last two days were spent cleaning and moving furniture and lifting books.  Not my idea of fun.  Also a bit hard on my back, which seems to be a bit bothersome as of late.  I really enjoyed relaxing and getting involved with Diva's new challenge.  We had to use the tangle "bridgen".  I fell in love with this tangle.  It is so peaceful and relaxing.  I started out by going to Tangle Patterns and checking out the new strings posts.  I chose string #3 to get me started.  By the time I finished, it is a bit hard to tell where it is!  Bridgen is like that - it sort of takes over and does its own thing.  Now I am in the process of working in my Tangle-A-Day calendar (Carole Ohl) to get it caught up.  
        Thought you might enjoy seeing my group's tangle work.  One rainy day recess, I decided to teach my classroom how to do a few tangles.  They loved it!  It was fascinating to see how involved they were - even my more active ones!  From that day on, they begged "teach us more tangles" and some even started going to my blog and on to Tangle Patterns for ideas!  Awesome! 
      Hope you are having a great day!  Thanks for all your comments!

  5. I love your tile. Bridgen makes a wonderful string. And I appreciate seeing what your class did. What grade do you teach. I'm impressed and think it's great that youngsters can get into this and enjou it's fruits. I can hardly wait for CZT class in September!
