This week at I am the Diva the assignment is to draw a tritangle using Huggins, Trio and Xyp, the first letters of which spell thx (thanks). It is also in honour of November 11, which in Canada we call Remembrance Day. I have a lot to be thankful for, but one of the things that makes me proud is that both of my parents served in WW2. As a teenager, they started dropping bombs on my mother's home, so she joined the Royal Air Force in England. My father joined the Royal Canadian Air Force. They met, and in 1945 married, which made my mother a war bride, and they came back to Canada. They are both gone now and I miss them terribly.
One of my challenges as a tangler is to integrate patterns together. I can put them side by side, but I have trouble making them look as if they belong together. I would like to be able to make them organic and flowing, but still am having trouble. I was limited timewise making this tile, so I only half succeeded in my goal. The patterns look ok together, but they don't mesh organically. A challenge in progress.
The three red trios are meant to represent red poppies. Lest we forget.
Have a thoughtful week.
