If you haven't discovered Suzy Mosh's New to Me Challenge you need to! I am always putting new tangles into my ever growing 3 ring binder. I put them in, but then always use the favorites. By asking us to take a letter of the alphabet and using tangles we have never used before, this forces me to explore and think outside my (3.5) box. This week's letter was V. My first thought was verve! Of course, since I use that every chance I get, I had to try to squelch that thought.
I chose to use "vector-wec" (Cindy Angiel), "vernazz" (Marie Browning - or at least in one of her books), and "vallee" (from Suzanne McNeill's tangle books). I wasn't too enthused about this tile. However, once I finished I found myself loving it!
