Fengle & Co

It’s a very long time ago since I tangled the pattern Fengle. A nice tangle though! Here I’ve combined it with some Ennies.

Diva challenge #368

We’re tangling only straight lines this week for Laura’s challenge. I like! From time to time I just have to draw tangles with straight lines ;-)

On this tile you can see Centre Square, Cubine, Juke and Facets. 

Thanks for visiting my blog! Your comments brighten my day :-)

Monday, 17 September 2018


Somehow Crescent Moon is one of my favourites :-)
Here he’s in the middle of Chillon, Borbz and Bloom.

Square One: Bran

For Facebook’s group Square One we’re focussing on Bran, a new-to-me pattern. Above it I drew Onba (also new to me) and Crescent Moon.

Diva challenge #367

Laura likes us to spend some time with Nzeppel and that’s always a nice thing to do :-)
I added some Cockles ‘n Mussels and transformed some Nzeppel into a flower.

Diva Challenge #365

Yeah, Laura is back after a well deserved Summer break! I’m happy, because her challenges are always inspiring. Her Back to Basics challenge is just the right thing to re-start. Thank you, Laura! Also for making me reconnect with my zentangle-colleagues, who I’ve missed too the last months. Looking forward seeing their work as well!

Back to Basics means tangling good old patterns: Hollibaugh, Crescent Moon, Keeko and Printemps.

It’s a String Thing #258

The string we use this week for Adele’s challenge is the share of the letter A, to honr the life of Aretha Franklin.

We’re filling it with Antidots, Apacore and Afterglo:

Stacked tangles

I felt like stacking some tangles so here you see Zag-V on top of Zewm on top of Zedbra on top of Warped eggs :-)

Grid patterns

I wanted to draw grid patterns, so here’s a tile full of them ;-)

You look at Bugle, Fat-X, Flyte and Operation.

In my (dream)garden

From time to time I like to draw soms garden settings :-)
Today’s plants are Mumsy, Flora, Laydee and Jacki.

Square One: Hexonu

For Facebook’s group Square One, we’re focussing at Hexonu. It’s a new-to-me pattern and I like that it has many possibilities.

Around it, you see Footlites, Tripoli and Flukes.

It’s a String Thing #257

Adele drew us a sort of square string and asked us to use Twilight, a new pattern and a nice one! I tangled Garlic gloves, FeBa and Fescu around it.
Thank you Adele, for another nice challenge!

Back after 6 (!) weeks

This Summer tangling break wasn’t planned at all, it just happened. We went on a lovely holiday to France and somehow (maybe because of the heat), I never felt like picking up my tangling materials.

Once we were back home, we met our new little kitten. She’s called Zoë and she’s adorable! And of course this little girl demands a lot of attention :-)

Luckily zentangle never really left my mind, so I’m very happy to start ‘again’. Shattuck, Patience and Ahh we’re the patterns I chose to draw first.

It’s a String Thing #251

I missed last week’s festivities for the 250th challenge of Adele, so hereby my late congratulations to Adele, and lots of thanks for so many great challenges!

This week we’re tangling with Stikz and Munchin, and I had fun doing so :-)

Tuesday, 10 July 2018


Today it was time for tangles starting with the letter P! Here you see Patience, Petal Pusher, Prestwood and Printemps. I love to draw Patience, but yes: it demands a lot of Patience ;-)

Sunday, 8 July 2018

Square One: Tangleflake

Square One makes us focus on Tangleflake, to cool us down a bit. Ahh! (Is the name of the pattern I’ve added ;-)

Saturday, 7 July 2018


The composition of this tile feels a bit off-balance to me. That’s probably I wanted to draw Quip (on the left) and there are not too many tangles starting with Q to choose from ;-)

Next to Quip you see Quiff, Q-Belle and Quilty feather.

New to me R-tangles

Today patterns starting with the letter R were my theme, and I wanted them to be new to me. At I found RangoliLiner, Route 66, Roloflex and Raindrops. Route 66 was the nicest new one for me to draw.

Monday, 2 July 2018

Square One: MySwing

Facebook’s group Square One likes us to focus on MySwing, a pattern I don’t draw very often. It’s a nice One though! I surrounded it with Mooka, Diva Dance and Fandance. A little party ;-)

Joey’s challenge #222

This is a happy and a sad moment at the same time. Happy because this is the 222nd challenge of Joey and I’m glad to participate :-)
Sad because this is her last challenge... :-(

I understand you can’t be doing this forever Joey ;-) but I’ll really miss the inspiration you gave me. Thank you so much!

Around Maryhill in the middle, I drew Chloé, Flux and Henna Drum. 

Wednesday, 27 June 2018


Today I created a tile with a choice of patterns starting with the letter S: Scallops, Skelter, Skye and Sindoo. The last pattern is my favorite (out of these 4), it’s so nice to draw it!

Tuesday, 26 June 2018


Tessel (top left) is a tangle I love to draw, but always forget about. In this tile I combined it with Ticking, Tint and Tamisolo.

Sunday, 24 June 2018

Square One: Amphora

We’re focussing on Amphora for Facebook’s group Square One, and I combined the pattern with Drogon, Snugz and Nzeppel.

Thursday, 21 June 2018

Joey’s challenge #221

We’re starting with Pais for Joey’s Finish my tile challenge. Around it I drew Hamail, Tipple, Inapod, Cruffle, Munchin and some good old Zinger.

Monday, 18 June 2018

Square One: Kuke

Facebook’s group Square One likes us to focus on Kuke. I united it with Petal Pusher, they seem to be good friends ;-)

Sunday, 17 June 2018

String Thing #247

Adele drew us a curvy capital letter D string, which I think you don’t recognize anymore ;-) after I filled it with D’rua, Dex and A-dalfa.

Friday, 15 June 2018

Joey’s challenge #220

When you look carefully ;-) you can still discover Puf in the middle, the tangle that Joey started her tile with. It might get blown away a bit by the other patterns: Lanie, Palrevo and Sindoo.

Saturday, 9 June 2018

Square One: Loev

We’re focusing on the pattern Loev for Facebook’s group Square One. It’s a lovely tangle :-) and I connected it with Barberpole.

Wow, I’ve just noticed this is my 1.000th post on this blog! I surely still love tangling as much as I did when I started in 2014!

Friday, 8 June 2018

New to me tangles

Apart from Fescu, all tangles in this tile are new to me: Clem, Dayz-E Fleur, Eiffel and Heartland.

Thursday, 7 June 2018

It’s a String Thing #246

Adele got inspired by Helen Williams’ String Grid - and so did I! It’s a lovely way of starting to tangle. My string grid got filled with Morning Glory, but there are plenty of other options.

Tuesday, 5 June 2018

Joey’s challenge #219

Joey gave herselve a challenge by starting with Poke root - and me too ;-) I never know what tangles to combine it with... Today I felt like adding Bluebonnets, Henna Drum and Tipple. It was a nice and relaxing tangling experience :-)

Sunday, 3 June 2018

Square One: Chorus

A good idea of Facebooks’ groep Square One: let’s focus on the pattern Chorus of Tomas Padros. I like :-)

Friday, 1 June 2018

Friday tile

I started this tile with Aquafleur and drew Jonqual, Nzeppel and...?! around it. Don’t know the name of the top left tangle  ;-)

Diva’s challenge #365

Laura challenges us to draw a monotangle of the pattern Puf. It’s a lovely tangle, but I find it hard to create an interesting monotangle of it. Luckily I’m stil quite pleased with the result ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments always put a smile on my face.

Joey’s challenge #218

Another finish my tile challenge by Joey! This week we’re starting with Dicso in the middle. Around it I fitted Q-Belle and added Flux and Some black pearls.

Diva’s challenge #364

Laura likes us to do a remake of a classic: remake one of our favorite tiles. I’ve got so many different tiles, that I decided to redo my very first entry of a challenge: my first participation in the Diva challenge #174!

Superimposing Strings was the theme back in 2014, and this time I chose to superimpose strings #020 and #040. I filled these with a lot of patterns: Keeko, Crescent Moon, Fe-Ba, Garlic Cloves, Fandance, 2-n-5, 63Y, Bloom, Carry Leaf and C-stem.

It’s a String Thing #244

To honour all those men and wonen that gave their lives in service, Adele drew us a starry string and asked us to use Auraknot. A lovely pattern and a lovely idea so here’s my entry:

Tuesday, 22 May 2018

Joey’s challenge #217

Another nice Finish my tile challenge by Joey, and we’re starting with Cadent. I drew some tangles around it that sort of look alike, or have the same base: Well and Huggins. That was fun!

Monday, 21 May 2018

Diva challenge #363

My entry comes a day too late for Laura’s challenge, but I’d like to share it anyway ;-)
Laura asked us to aura our choice of tangles as much as we wanted, so I did this with Snugz, Petal Pusher, Wibble, Pufcookie, Zenith and Phroz. 

Friday, 18 May 2018

Joey’s challenge #216

I didn’t mean to, but somehow I managed to hide the pattern Friendship of Joey’s finish my tile challenge ;-) Around that friendly tangle you can see Croissant, CC and Bugle.

Diva #362 meets Joey#215

The last weeks I have way too little time to tangle :-( so for once, I’m combining Laura’s and Joey’s challenges. I drew Whirlee on top of Somnee and... voilà ;-)

Saturday, 5 May 2018

Joey’s challenge #214

Joey created a starting tile with Spoken in the middle. I  filled it with Mack, Shattuck, Sand Swirl and... a tangle Idon’t know the name of. 

Tuesday, 1 May 2018


This tile started with Fandango and below it, I drew Fe-Ba and Fiore:

Tuesday, 24 April 2018

Joey’s challenge #213

Joey started her tile in the middle with a tangle I didn’t know: Frames. It’s quite a high focus tangle to me, so around it I drew some golden oldies ;-) with the names Bales, Borbz, Jemz and Nzeppel.

Sunday, 22 April 2018

Diva challenge #360

My week was more busy than I had thought, so little time to tangle unfortunately. Just in time my entry for Laura’s challenge is finished: a duotangle of Shattuck and Tripoli.

Joey’s challenge 212

This week Joey drew us Relly Telly One for her Finish My Tile front and center challenge.

Very soon after tangling Relly Telly One in the centre of my tile, all kinds of things happened and all of a sudden I was looking at some sort of a quilt. It just happened ;-)

The tangles I’ve added are Bugle, Buttercup and CC.
