The Diva's Weekly Challenge #142: "Comfort/Danger Zone"

Ok, so we are to step away from tangling for comfort but test our pens and pencils at something that we pass over and say 'I'll do that later, it looks to difficult'. I have a feeling we might see many black tiles with this challenge. I have had a new pack of blank black tiles hidden in my box for this very occasion. A couple of tangles that I have been wanting to try are snugz by Terri Brown and cruze by Caren Mlot. Oh, both these tangles are fabulous, not as tricky as they look and such fun.
Thanks Laura for urging me to open the pack of black tiles.

Joshua and Nan's wedding ceremony was held in The Launceston City Park.
We enjoyed a fantastic sparkly and sunny day with laughs, tears and many hugs.

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #141: DuoTangle - Fengle/Quandary

For this weeks challenge I chose an off cut piece of paper that was just to good to toss. Fengle has been on my list of tangles to get back to so this challenge came at just the right time. Thanks Laura.

Four with finery

Sometimes I see tiles on my work table that seem to fall into a group like these four that fit into the back to basics category and contain (another favourite) tangle finery.

8s Parte Dos

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #139: UMT vXXI "8s Parte Dos" by Jane Eileen

Jane's tangle 8s Parte Dos has been added to my favourites list, I really enjoy this type of tangle where the curved lines sneak in, out and under. Yes, I made a couple of small whoopsies so Bronx cheer came in handy to cover up the odd lines.

Zentangle in Stitches

My good friend Liz Bulman is a whizz with her sewing machine, she can whip up curtains in a flash or turn her creativity into fantastic pieces of art. When her copy of Suzanne McNeill's book Zen-sational Stitches for Quilting arrived she was soon inspired by Kayleen Allen's apples and Sue Needle's wall hanging.
