Day 61 - New to Me Challenge!

    Have I mentioned I am somewhat (some would argue quite a lot) obsessive?  I can be.  For example the challenges I am involved in.  It drives me nuts to skip one.  I am so linear.  Of course, a while back I gave myself "permission" to skip every now and then when life got hectic.  It still makes me a bit nuts, but I have accepted I may not get them all.  Doesn't mean I don't try, though.
    Back to the obsession.  Every time a new tangle is posted - Tangle Harmony, Tangle patterns, and any other place - they immediately go into my HUGE green three ring binder.  I must have thousands there.  Then the ones that catch my eye, I use.  Others get stored away.  That is what is so great about this challenge by Suzy Mosh.  It forces me to look at some tangles that I might not have done beforehand.  My notebook has three sections - open space patterns, grid based patterns, and borders.  Each section in alphabetical order.  So when Suzy introduces a new challenge, I go through each section looking for tangles that are "New to Me".  She only asks that we use one new tangle with the target letter, but ever the crazy that I can be, I try to use only tangles that start with that letter and also try to only use new ones.  Some letters are easier than others.
     This week we were looking for tangles that started with the letter H.  I went through the sections and made "notes" about new ones of to the side of my tile (drawn in my Tangle A Day calendar).  Then I just let the process take over.  I copied the whole page because I thought it might be fun to see what it looked like.

      Thanks for dropping by.  Your comments make my day and I love hearing from you!  Have a great day!  I am somewhat tired today as it is my first day back to school and kiddos in a very long time.  It is going to be a very long week.  Then again, they are saying the "s" word for Thursday!  Oh my!
