Early last Wednesday morning Sylvia, my Mother-In-Law passed peacefully away in her sleep. Sylvia was elegant, vivacious and loving. Her life was full and productive, she was a beautiful dressmaker and loved creating anything from children's toys to glamourous wedding gowns. Sylvia was in her glee designing outfits for fancy dress parties and organising family gatherings.
With 89 years of living with passion and zest we can celebrate her life and be thankful for her love.

Saturday, October 20, 2012


Today is gardening day! Since my addiction to Zentangle started our garden hasn't had the attention it needs. The sun is shining so I am off to shake the spider webs out of my garden gloves.

Weeds don't grow in my tangled gardens!

Beads of Courage

If you are new to Zentangle pop over to The Diva's blog and read Laura's story. I am always inspired by her enthusiasm and spirit. This week her challenge #91 is named for Beads of Courage which is a charity that helps a child with a chronic illness or condition like Laura's youngest son.

Today I received  issue #2 of  Featuring magazine from The Netherlands.  Linda Farmer from has written a superb article on Zentangle. It was lovely to see one of my tiles published also!!!

When in doubt tangle circles

Filling in a mass of circles with tempting tangles is like adding fertiliser to a garden!

Spring Forward Fall Back

Tonight, (here in Tasmania) we turn our clocks forward an hour for Daylight Saving. I used to get confused but the words spring forward fall back helps me remember which way to turn the clock. We are also reminded to do certain things at the change of Daylight Saving like replacing the batteries in fire alarms and buy new tooth brushes.

Purk is still an all time favourite tangle, it makes great petals. Here is a spring bloom in fall colours!

Another month has gone by and we are trying a tangle by Maria Vennekens - named sankegg for The Diva's Challenge. I found it a bit tricky, my sankegg turned out a bit more like sails on a lake.
