" String Theory " 0- Challenge #129

I used to really, really like tangling within 'pre-strung' strings..... but somewhere along my  Zentangle Journey, it has become a not-so-favorite method-of-choice.  Or maybe it just depends on the mood-of-the-day.  After all, tangling those weekly mandala designs (Zendala Dare) is pretty exciting.  At least it has peaked my interest for now.  Sometimes I feel claustrophobic and don't want to be confined to a small area designated by a string.  I just want be loosy-goosy and pop out-of-the-box with curving, lingering, random lines exuding from the tip of my pen.  The pen does all the work.

So, I moaned and groaned (for a brief nano-second!) - until I remembered a very cool, brandy-new tangle that I found and fell in love with this week (on line).  I have been so anxious to test-drive it, and this predetermined string challenge is the perfect time to give it a go.  Once again, the Universe has come to my rescue!!

Because I don't remember the name of this cool new tangle, I was unable to locate it!   So, I put my pen into 1st gear and proceeded from memory.... (always a risky venture!)   I'm happy with how that tangle looks, but the tile as a

If you should happen to know/find the name of the tangle in the two- teardrop areas on the tile below, please enlighten me!   (Many thanks, in advance.)
