My tangle pattern "Mulberry"

"Here we go round the mulberry bush..."  I'm probably aging myself with the lyrics to that song, lol.  Do children still sing it?

While I was working on this tangle, the song popped into my head, because I had trouble doing the steps until I fell into a rhythm--go round the square drawing the rectangles.  Then go round the square connecting them, and then go round again completing the connecting rectangles.  And when working a grid, you go around the grid connecting the squares.  So the name 'Mulberry' seemed appropriate.


  1. This one is marvellous – I just can´t stop looking at it!

  2. You have the most incredable gift of shading! Well done, my friend,
    well done indeed.

  3. I like how you featured Mulberry with various amounts of background - from white to black. Besides your gift for shading, mentioned above, you combine your straight patterns with just the right amount of curly ones in really eye catching designs! I'm a fan!!

  4. This one reminds me of a close up view of the weave of linen. I love your work!

  5. So beautiful!!! This reminds me of a nice, warm & cozy quilt. :)
