In there you’ll find Bilt, Bird on a Wire, Boomerang, BB, Borbz, Box Spirals, Bubbles, Batek, Bookee, Betweed, Barberpole and Beadlines

For Challenge 40 I picked from the back catalogue of It’s A String Thing challenges.  The 23rd String Thing challenge was to use this string:


And then to use tangles that started with Ba.  In my piece you’ll find Basketweave, Batch, Barberpole, Bateek, Bales, Baton and Bask-it.

Remember that String Thing challenge I did?  Turns out the creator shows the pieces that have been done in a separate blog post, and I got a mention 🙂  Very cool.

And Challenge 41 is this week’s String Thing.  We got a nice St Patrick’s Day string, and had to use the tangles Lucky and Paradox 🙂

In there you’ll find Cyme, Cadent, Cubine, Capell, Chordin and Chocobox.  That last one is new to me, and I quite like it.  It looks like little bookworms.
