I'm not known for being subtle. Far from it. But I've been wanting to try this oh-so-subtle technique (does it have a name? I can't find one) by CZT Maria Tovar for a long time and today, the penultimate day of the Gratitangles Project, I thought these two simple tangles would lend themselves well to it. They did, even on my first try.
This is part of my work on the November Gratitangles Project, which is all about focusing on gratitude while tangling. I had to laugh as I was finishing this piece and Alison Krauss's wonderful song The Lucky One came on. (Granted the song is NOT about gratitude. Or at least, not in the way I've been exploring gratitude! But I love the music and the title fit my thoughts, even though the lyrics have an entirely different meaning.) I love Alison Krauss. Here is another song of hers I adore. You're welcome...
This has been a wonderful project to do. I have one more day to complete and then I hope to continue tangling while thinking about why I am grateful for everything in my life, even the hard parts.
“We can do subtle," I assured her.
"It's our middle name," Andrea added.
For some odd reason Rene didn't look convinced.”
