Spiral String

The Diva's  Weekly Challenge #210: "Spiralstring - that's the thing!"

This week the focus tangle for our Facebook page Square One: Purely Zentangle was mooka and the string I chose was a spiral so this tile fits both groups. I haven't had much time for tangling this week as we have been on a fun bike trip and had a few problems with the internet.

This photo was taken back in 1975 when Paul and I were leaving on our honeymoon.
40 years later, I still have the same husband and we also have the same Triumph and sidecar.

Here we are ready to go again! This time, a relaxing trip around Port Phillip Bay in Victoria.

Cubine vs Pokeroot

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #208: "Duotangle - Cubine vs Pokeroot"

The light is shining in all directions, perhaps the wind is gusting and the berries are being toppled and blown about. Not so sure about this one but I like the wavy lines in cubine.

Beate Winkler's 101 Favourite Patterns

This week I have been inspired by CZT Beate Winkler's new book 'Das GroBe Zentangle - Buch. As you can see by the cover it's in German, I took that as a challenge to learn some new words and downloaded a translator. You don't actually need to do that because all the tangle step-outs are clear and easy to follow. Many tanglers from all over the world sent Beate their patterns, I love that aspect of Zentangle that we can share and enjoy each others ideas no matter which language we speak. Beate has included variations to many of the patterns in her own elegant style.

Thanks Beate!
Check out Amazon for ordering a copy.

Here are 2 tiles including Rubenesque, a nifty tangle by Hannah Geddes CZT from the UK which can be found on age 93.
