Diva/s Weekly Challenge #251: Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day

January 24 is Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day. Moebius Syndrome is a non-progressive craniofacial/neurological disorder that manifests itself primarily in facial paralysis. I was unaware of this disorder before following the Diva's blog, where, through Laura's (aka the Diva) stories, I met her son, Artoo. He is a beautiful, cute, funny and extremely smart 5.5 year old who happens to have Moebius Syndrome. You can learn more--and see his adorable pictures--on Laura's blog.
Our challenge was to create a Moebius strip string and tangle it, using purple, to support the Moebius Syndrome Foundation and Moebius Awareness Day.



Many thanks to Laura for this fun and informative challenge. Thanks as well to my visitors for stopping by! Have a wonderful week!

  1. This is a lovely tile. I want to keep looking at it. I wonder if you might like to list the Tangles you use. I recognise some but not all.

  2. Great Moebious Logo. How clever to find so many patterns and draw them within the strips. I think it is tricky to do long thin areas.

    1. Thanks, YT! I like to practice "ribbons" and frames using segments of different tangles. (Saw where Maria recommended doing frames with 2-inch bits of tangles.)

  9. Nice tangles and I'm impressed that you managed to shade in purple. I've never quite mastered successful shading with color.
