I was looking forward to Roman Numeral lV for Joey's Challenge this week. I thought it would be nice to get away from the all straight lines of l, ll, & lll, so it came as quite a surprise to find lV quite difficult. I am not sure if it is the string or the chosen tangles, but I found this quite a challenge. I have thrown away about half a dozen tiles, drawn on both sides, so that is 12 attempts. I just couldn't get it to look anything other than busy. Even now I only have a duo today, but I am calling a halt.
My first tile has Mom drawn along the string, outlined in gold. The shapes of the amoeba are not very amoeba like but it was the best I could do.
