Old in new

Today I chose to use the new string #201 and fill it with some 'good old' basic tangles. Always nice and relaxing to do :-)

The patterns I used are (top right, going clockwise): Buttercup, Weave, Kaleido, Yawn, Crossroads, Ennies and Printemps.

Joey's challenge #106

Joey's challenge is this week: use her Roman Numeral VI String and fill it with tangles of your own choice. I guess I missed the pattern suggestions a bit, since I chose tangles I don't use very often - and I wonder if they go well together. Oh well, it gave a nice zen feeling ;-)

Drupe as a string

Today, I've used Drupe as a string and I filled it with several patterns. Starting top left and going clockwise, you can see Quiltz, Zedbra, Yew-dee, Striping, Keeko, Jonqual, Hibred and Hollibaugh. Which one of these is your favorite tangle?

Pneunomia tile

Despite the pneunomia I'm having right now :-( I try to tangle, when I have enough energy for it. This means I'm doing 1 tile in 2 or 3 shifts, but it's such a nice way to forget about everything for a short while. 

So: here I've been playing with ING, Borbz, Tipple and Meer.

Alphabet challenge #49: L-Z-Y

This week, we're tangling with patterns starting with L, Y and Z for Diane & Carolien's challenge. The tangles I chose are Lealed, Yoga and Zonked. The last one (on the right side) is always a difficult one to me, sothis was a good practice :-)

Diva's challenge #260

This week, Laura likes us to create a Monotangle with Shattuck. Quite a challenge, because of itself, but also because hearing the news about Brussels (less than 1,5 h from where I live) takes away a lot of my focus :-( Let there be peace...

Thanks for visiting my blog :-)

Practising the tangle Organic

I wanted to practice the pattern 'Organic' (in the middle) and somehow this is the result. I had imagined another composition, but this one's fine too :-)

It ended up like this:

Diva's challenge #259

Laura's asking us to add a touch of Irish to our tile. Nice! I love Ireland and was lucky enough to attend an Irish wedding once. Such a lovely experience!

For this challenge I chose to use a Celtic knot as a string and fill it with plenty tangles. A bit of a puzzle and a lot of fun :-)

Playing with Zag-V and Sails

I'm quite a big fan of Helen Williams' work. She creates beautiful things, I love her work ánd the tangles she has designed. Today, I've been playing with two of them: Zag-V and Sails.

The tangles I've used are Auraknot, 4Mom and Xav.

Diva's challenge #258

It's UMT time at Laura's blog. The 'Use My Tangle' is Rautyflex bij Kathrin Bendel. A high focus tangle - but I love it! I kept it big enough to get the right feeling of this pattern.

Thank you for visiting my blog, your comments brighten my day :-)

Joey's challenge #103

We've arrived at Roman Numeral III at Joey's challenge. She drew a lovely #3 string with a bit of a wave effect and likes us to use Buttercup, Fescu and Tipple. So... here it is :-)

P.S. When I was finished, I looked at my tile and saw something that reminded me more of some kind of sign of the number 4 instead of 3. Must be the way I composed it ;-)

Practising Escher...

Today I've been playing with patterns of Sandy Bartholomew. Escher (top right) will always be a difficult tangle for me, but I'll keep practicing :-)

Bales, BIC, Ennies and Cubine are more my cup of tea ;-)

Joey's challenge #102

A Roman Numeral II is our string this week at Joey's challenge, and we're to fill it with Japonica, Hi C's and Flux. I don't use the first two very often, so that was nice to do :-)
