Diva challenge #337

Artoo, Laura's son, is having his 7th birthday this week. So, we're tangling his namesake tangle :-)

I added Zander, like a garland - and drew seven little hearts (for Artoo) in the 'sky'. Happy birthday!

Joey's challenge 187

Unfortunately ;-) we're finished with drawing our 9 tiles-mosaic. Luckily Joey gives us new inspiration :-) We will be tangling 3D shaped strings. This first one has to contain Betweed - and whatever tangle we like.

As you can see I added Zonked, Diva Dance and Hollibaugh. It was fun!

It's a String Thing #215

We're using to newer tangles this time for Adèles challenge: Delys and Clob. I like the last one a bit better, but maybe I just have to practice Delys a bit more ;-)

Joey's challenge #186

Woohoo, we've arrived at tangling the last tile for Joey's challenge of making a mosaic of 9 tiles! On this last tile we're adding Pokeleaf and now it's all done... I'm happy and a bit sad as well ;-)

Thank you Joey, for making us create this  wonderful piece of art :-)

Joey's challenge #184

Yeah, it's 'Nzeppel week! Both at the Diva's blog and at Joey's! For the last one, we've reached tile #7 out of 9 and I'm so pleasantly surprised what the big total is gonna look like! Not only of my own work, but definitely as well of my colleagues' :-))

Diva challenge #334

This week, Laura likes us to create a tile with 'crazy 'Nzeppel' like Molly Hollibaugh. I love that pattern, so off I went! ;-)

I started with 'Nzeppel in the middle and drew Crescent Moon, Diva Dance and a 'caged egg' around it. 

Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments always put a smile on my face :-)

Diva challenge #333

A lovely guest post by Juliette and Kellie at the Diva blog! They like us to identify a tangle or 2 that feel cozy. Summer is changing into Autumn ;-)

The ladies suggested 4 tangles and I picked the two that were most cosy to me. Marasu of course (no doubt about that one!) and a variation of Ennies filled up my tile cozily ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments always brighten my day :-)

Not often

These 4 tangles are quite pretty, but for some reason I don't tangle them very often: Skein, Squill, Popova and Jute.

Saturday, 16 September 2017


B is the letter my tangles start with today: Beebug, Ballenchain and Birds on a Wire.

Joey's challenge #182

We've arrived at tile number 5 out of 9 at Joey's challenge and we're adding the tangle Muscari. This tile is a full one ;-)

It makes me happy to see where this journey is taking me!

Diva challenge #332

Laura is back after the Summer holidays and she's got a nice challenge for us: create a tile using a string consisting of two squares.

I decided to keep it simple and filled my squares with B'tweed and Cadent, and added some Flux. 

Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments always brighten my day :-)

Thursday, 7 September 2017


Today I was caught by some P-tangles: Prestwood, Petal Pusher, Pinwheels and Puf.

Joey's challenge 181

We've arrived at tile #4 of Joey's 9 tile challenge! This week, we're drawing Breach. Around is you see Crescent Moon, Tipple, Fassett, Kiasom, C-Wing and a tiny bit of Keeko.

As you can see here, I couldn't put my pen down when I was drawing Kiasom ;-)

Borbz was on my mind and this is what it looks like on paper ;-)

I love this challenge! :-)

Zenith, Zag-V and Flux

Zenith and Zag-V are patterns I love, but don't use enough. Here you see them together with Flux.

Drawing with a 003 pen

In shops in Japan, they sell Sakura Micron Pigma 003 pens. A lovely holiday souvenir, to be able to draw such tiny and fine lines :-)

Almost all lines of Ibex, Chic and Ennies are drawn with this 003 pen.

It's a String Thing #208

We're celebrating the 4th birthday of the ''It's a String Thing' challenge! Congratulations Adele, and thank you for all those great challenges!

Joey's challenge #178

We're starting an exciting challenge at Joey's new blog! We're taking 9 tiles and together they form 1 square. On this big square, we draw 1 big 'border' and inside we create a large string, crossing every tile. Mine looks like this:

So, for this week's challenge we take tile nr. 1 (top left) and fill it with African Artist and whatever we want. 

I chose to add Florz, Crescent Moon, Tipples and Fassett. The composition of this tile by itself looks pretty funny to me - I can't wait to connect tile 2 and 4 and... all the others :-)

Joey's challenge #177

A few days ago I came back home from a lovely holiday to Japan, so I was pleased to see that guest blogger Susan Theron drew us a J - string ;-) Of course I also love to thank Joey for all her challenges!

I filled it with Joki, Voga, Orange peel, Vortex and Jonqual - all tangles starting with J/ V/ O.

Diva challenge #328

I'm back from a lovely holiday in Japan. Such a beautiful country with lovely people!

Now I'm back home in the cold and wet Netherlands (despite Summer), so I'm happy to participate in the Diva's challenge again. Suzanne Fluhr is this week's guest blogger and she likes us to use Aloha. A great pattern! I added some Diva Dance and black pearls. 

Thank you for visiting my blog! You're comments always make me happy :-)

Arukas Monotangle

This tile was purely meant to relax - I needed it and it worked :-)

Wednesday, 9 August 2017

Sand Swirl setting

Sand Swirl is a pattern I love, but it's also quite a difficult one to me because of all these parallel curved lines. I like the result though!

Tuesday, 8 August 2017

Sundoo as a string

Sundoo: a happy tangle! I used it as a string and filled it with Tagh, Hollibaugh, Papermint, Crescent Moon and Static.

Monday, 7 August 2017

Stacking tangles

Stacking tangles is nice to do from time to time! From left to right you see Prestwood, Onomato, Shattuck, Ping and Pixioze.

Cadent in a circle

Cadent is the heart of this circle. Around it you see Printemps, Scallops and... I forgot ;-)

Annee Crossing

Here you can see an Annee-crossroad, flying over Yincut, Juke and Bales :-)

Wednesday, 2 August 2017


I tried a Prestwood Monotangle, not sure if it's nice to look at, but it was fun to do!

Tuesday, 1 August 2017

Zander and friends

It's quite a long time ago I did Zander, so here it is again ;-) Together with Flux, Flukes and Ennies.

New to me: Paisley Boa

This time I'm discovering the pattern Paisley Boa. I don't think it wil be a favorite one for me, because the lines don't 'flow' easily. I like the result together with Footlites though!
