Adele Bruno stumped me this week! For the It’s a String Thing Challenge, the selected string pattern (061) had two large circles, geometric points, and a lot of blank space. The tangles (Xeni, Xav, Xplode, and X) were lots of fun, but I just wasn’t sure where to put them. I put Adele’s own tangle pattern Xav (named after her grandson) in the background and a variation of Xeni in the two circles with a bit of X and Xplode.
Xeni was difficult to draw, even after Adele’s helpful hints. When practicing, I had to think of it has making a “d” and then an “e” to get it right, but then I couldn’t find a way to blend it into the string. I’m looking forward to seeing how other people interpreted this challenge. And, please share your tips for drawing Xeni.
