Challenge #49 - Red Thread

Version one: Spinners, Popsicles, Tipple, Shard, Hollibaugh,
Cross Stitch, Golven, Pendrils, and a red thread!

Version two: It's all about the red thread,  Pendrils a' growin'!
Cris Letournea, CZT of Tangled Up in Art takes up the Diva's challenge this week.

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break."
- Chinese proverb

To raise awareness for the mission of the Red Thread Promise, she asks us to to create a traditional black and white tangle tile with a single red "thread" running through it.

A wonderful challenge for this time of year when we are asked to give thanks and appreciate what and who we have in our lives. I am blessed with wonderful family and friends and cherish each and every one of them. This is a great proverb and helps me appreciate what I have, rather than what is missing in my life.

Thanks for another wonderful, thought provoking challenge. Time for all us to count our blessings and wish Artoo a speedy recovery.
