Today we begin with TanglePatterns String 066 created by Melodie Hampshire.
Noticing that we have paid little or no attention to tangles that begin with the letter 'Q' - I looked over string lines to see which one would be a good companion to the 'Q' tangles that I reviewed.
As it just so happened, String 066 seemed just right. Coincidentally - and I do believe there are no coincidences in life - tomorrow is my grandmother's birthday. Were she still here today, she would be 109 years old. Imagine that!
As a young girl, I distinctly remember when she turned 66 years of age - "schixty schix", she used to say with a wry smile.
Here is a picture of my grandmother and me taken around 1960 ~
Her name was Guellma Gevene - a rare mouth full. Today, we are blessed with a daughter named Elena Gevene and her daughter, Ella Gevene. What a glorious blessing that her name lives on.
In this marvelous month of October - one that my grandmother held dear because of our birthdays - we continue celebrating with String 066 ~
