Interlacing experiment

I have a lot I could say about this, but my sister is visiting with her two kids for three weeks. So I've been surrounded by 4 kids, aged 4, 3, 2, and 6 months, and it's a miracle I got anything done at all. And now we're going to dinner. Ciao chow!



Later... What I was trying was to take the shape from here and have six of them making a sort of hexagon shape, all interlacing. Then I added the outside line (in black) to make the star patterns (so that the center of each loop was rotationally symmetric). I originally wanted it in dark blue and dark green with a gold outside line, but after I started with those colors I realized I needed 1x1 plates or tiles, and they don't make those in gold or dark green. Tragic! I'm seriously thinking of cutting some of the clips off of the pearl gold 1x1 plates with clips... but that's not quite purist, and I'm really a purist at heart (though some would argue that I'm not, since I don't attach everything together). Maybe LEGO will get their act together and make 1x1 plates and/or tiles in every color? Maybe? ;-) Anyway, I ended up trying different shades of grey. I'm not sure that I like it. I thought that the similar colors would show the interlacing parts without being disruptive of the image of the whole, but when I look at it at this size it just seems confusing. Maybe it'd be better resized smaller...
