It's a String Thing #104

Adele's Birthday Candle String
"Drupe", "Prestwood" & "Meringue"

Challenge #104 marks It's a String Thing's second birthday. Adele created a special string in the form of two birthday candles. I've never used any of these patterns before but I've always loved Margaret Bremner's "Prestwood". It reminds me of my new favorite tangle "Narwal".
I didn't think outside the box at all for this challenge. Immediately I knew what needed to go where. The only thing I played around with a little was what I was going to do with "Drupe" as it seemed that the candles were made for "Prestwood" with a "Meringue" flame. I could not refrain from adding color for a bit of festivity. I can't wait to see what everyone does with this. It always amazes me how many variations and interpretations will come about from the very tight perameters of these challenges.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments are greatly appreciated.


  1. This is gorgeous! I love how you put Drupe behind the candles and flames, like a "bouquet final" of fireworks!! So festive!
