Tangle of the week: Hemp

Hemp is in the spotlight this week, because it reminds me of my Grandma.

You can find the tutorial here, and if you’re interested in the story then read on.

Grandma had a wooden puzzle/pattern thing (I really don’t know the technical term) made of triangles and diamonds in bright primary colours. I spent hours and hours sitting on the floor, shuffling those shapes around to make different patterns.

My favourite was putting all the red diamonds together to make a 6-pointed star, and filling in the space between the points with blue and yellow triangles.

As soon as I saw Hemp, it brought back those memories in full technicolour. Hopefully my cards using Hemp will go to people making new memories of their special days.

What do you think of Hemp? Anyone know the puzzle/pattern things I’m talking about? Let me know in the comments!
