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 ;-)

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.

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.

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!

New to me tangles

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

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.

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 :-)

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:

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.

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.

Thursday, 19 April 2018

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.

Square One: Zoya

In Facebook’s group Square One we’re focusing on Zoya. Like Crux a couple of weeks ago, I used Zoya as a firm base for the other tangles: Zedbra, Golven, Flux and Tipple.

Birthday tile

We’re celebrating my Mum’s birthday today, so I drew her a birthday tile with Pernula, Heartstring and Btl Joos ;-)

Friday, 13 April 2018

It’s a String Thing #238

Adele invites us to discover her new tangle Mack. Well, I did and it was quite a discovery ;-) and it inspirerend me to add patterns that also have straight lines and black little squares.

The combination with Flukes and Capeangle is maybe a little dizzying ;-) but I like the result:

Tuesday, 10 April 2018

Joey’s challenge #211

Joey drew us some Breach in the middle of a tile, and I drew a lot around it. Apparently I’m in a busy period, cause this is my second busy looking tile in 2 days ;-)

Diva challenge #359

Laura has a funny challenge this week: we’re to draw a string by tracing our fingers. After seeing Laura’s video I decided to not trace too many fingers, to prevent the tile from being too busy. So: only 3 fingers:

Somehow ;-) I forgot all about my good intentions when I started drawing Auraknot behind the three fingers who were already filled with Andromeda, Balo and C-Stem. Haha, a busy tile appeared! So I just added some Flux to finish it. 

Thanks for visiting my blog! Your comments are always much appreciated!

Square One: Shard

For Facebook’s group Square One we focus at the tangle Shard. I combined it with Crescent Moon, which looks a bit busy to me now ;-)

Friday, 6 April 2018

Diva challenge #358

The first Monday of April is a Use My Tangle challenge and Laura has chosen the pattern Pickpocket of Tomas Padros. A tangled I really admire, so I was pleased to discover this new tangle of him. Around it you see a giant version of Tipple ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments always brighten my day.

Joey’s challenge #210

Joey has started a new Finish my tile series. For 13 weeks she is starting with a tangle in the front and center of the tile.
We start with Mak Rah Mee. I always find it challenging to find good tangles to join this one, but I’m quite pleased with this result. 

Wednesday, 28 March 2018

Diva’s challenge #357

Laura asked for a Paradox monotangle, I decided to keep it plain and simple :-)

Joey’s challenge #209

We’ve already arrived at the last ‘Finish my tile - Ribbons and Curls challenge’ by Joey. I’ve really enjoyed these challenges, so thank you, Joey!

This week we’re starting with Diva Dance. I decided to mix some Zinger through it and draw Sanibelle and Fescu below it. 

Thanks for visiting my blog, your comments always brighten my day!

Saturday, 24 March 2018

Diva challenge #355

I’m very sad: yesterday we had to say goodbye to our dearest cat friend Izzy :-( All of a sudden he became very ill and it’s hard to realise he’s not with us anymore. May he rest in peace 🙏🏻

Tangling gives me some comfort, so I liked Laura’s challenge to create something with the pattern Verve. I kept it simple and added Wud and Hurry 🙏🏻

Saturday, 10 March 2018

Diva challenge #354

The first Monday of the month is UMT (Use My Tangle) at the Diva’s challenge. We’re using Siri and I’ve added some MySwing:

I tangled Ojo, Crescent Moon, Merryweather, Munchin and Lenche. 

Wednesday, 7 March 2018

Joey’s challenge #206

Joey found a nice pattern she doesn’t know the name of, but that we’re tangling anyway ;-) You see it bottom right. Around it I’ve tangled Xs and Orbs, Warped Eggs and Windfarm:

Joey’s challenge #205

Last week I had the pleasure to stay in Spain for a ‘grab the sun in wintertime’ holiday. It was lovely :-)

Back in the Dutch cold but lovely wheater (have you seen pictures of Dutchies skating on canals?!) I gladly rejoin Joey’s challenge. It’s the second week of the ‘ribbons and curls finish my tile challenge’ and we start with Andromeda. Below it, you see Warble and Patience, above it tangles I don’t know the name of.
