String it: 2² (two squared)

The Diva's

Weekly Challenge #332 "String it: 2² (two squared)"

Phew! It's been a busy week, our  35 year old carpet has been replaced with fresh grey wool new carpet. What a job! Great now that it's down and I'm happy! Our old carpet has survived children growing up, parties and dogs, it was a super quality and still looked ok but it was 'red'. I have procrastinated over replacing it because it wore so well and everyone who visited admired our lovely red carpet and when I mentioned that I was planning to change it, there were always comments "No, not the red carpet!"

One, Two.......

Our son and daughter-in-law have moved into their new home. Lucky me.... they have asked if I could tangle a long piece of Zentangle Inspired Art. What a lovely excuse to design a four square long mosaic using Opus tiles. I love the colours of their living room mat so that was my starting point.

I'm going to try a wave effect.....hope it works!
Here are the first two tiles.
