Red thread

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break." -Chinese proverb

This week's ZIA is to create a tile  a traditional black and white tangle tile with a single red "thread" running through it. 

Why a red thread??

The Red Thread Promise is an organisation that helps children, both here and abroad, by providing medical treatments and other essentials that we often take for granted.

... this is what my heart drew... 

...a sparkly red thread which connects the world and well Cris is collecting tangled tiles which will be sold or auction to help raise money to support this lovely mission. So lovely ladies when you are done tangling- write your name on the back along with your location, city, state, country, whatever you are comfortable sharing.  Send your tile to

Cris Letourneau
6285 Blacklick-Eastern Rd.
Pickerington, OH 43147

or scan your tile and add it to the  I Promise to Help Flicker group 

Good Luck Cris and Thanks Laura!!

Meet this weeks ZIA at "Iamthediva"- another String theory.
So many possibilities

The challenge comes from Sue Clark and the big idea is to use the "Three basic shapes" to create a string and use tangles you have never used before.

Tangles used are Pendrills, Pepper, Nipa, Sanibelle, Queens crown, Postl, Nzeppel and Bridgen.
Nzeppel was one tangle that I would always shy away from as I found it very complex, so Thanx Laura and Sue you guys pushed me out of my comfort zone and IT WAS FUN

Remember when..how often we go down this road, be with our spouse, our children, family, pets, friends...remembering sweet nothing and mussing over it, memories that bring a smile on our face and a tear in our eyes,
This week's ZIA at "Iamthediva" is "Lest we Forget", and this is my remembrance...

...stories untold, memories blurred with time, but knowing that they were filled with love and care, friends come and gone and having that faith that we will meet again...
