It’s been quite a while since I checked in on the Diva to see what the challenge of the week is. I saw a posting from another CZT about “tangling like no one’s watching,” and since I like to “dance like no one’s watching,” I was intrigued. As per the challenged, I’m posting a tile I did just for me.

This tile is different in that I challenged myself to move away from my usual strings and just make a big curvy overlapping line. I had been wanting to work with Eni Oken’s tangle “Trigue,” so I played around with very large tangles. I settled on Knight’s Bridge (one of my favorite go-to tangles) and Ambler (from my latest Tangle Library Class). The white space seemed to create itself.

This was fun!

The Diva’s challenge this week (#251) is to use the Moebius Syndrome Foundation as a “string” and create a Zentangle tile or Zendala, incorporating the Moebius Syndrome Foundation color purple if desired. The Diva’s youngest son Artoo was diagnosed with Moebius Syndrome when he was born.

When I read the challenge, I must confess I didn’t know what Moebius Syndrome is. From the Diva’s post, I learned that it is a congenital nerve disorder affecting cranial VI and VII nerves controlling the lateral movement of the face. Artoo sure is a cute little guy!

I found the logo challenging in an Escher sort of way, with its twists and turns. Here it is, posted just as Moebuis Awareness Day begins at 12:22 a.m. on Sunday, January 25, 2016. Note the purple chop ….
