The Endless Zentangle Project – Part 2

The weekend before last I went to a big Zentangle meetup here in Germany and – like last year – it was a lot of fun! As I mentioned before, Christina from W wie Windspiel made a leporello for me so I could participate in the endless Zentangle challenge by Natalie Plechkova (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, please >>click here<<). She gave it to me just before the meeting and it turned out magnificiently! ❤ Here it is (it's the dark one):

The picture was taken by Christina from W wie Windspiel and is used with her kind permission. You can find this picture and more beautiful art on her Instagram account

The paper inside is Fabriano Tiepolo, the same paper as the official Zentangle tiles are made of, and has 10 pages total (so I have a chance of finishing it in a not too distant future).

Here are two little updates for the endless Zentangle project. The first picture is from about ten days ago when I first started:

Tangles used so far: Stella

And this is how it looked about one week later:
after one week
Tangles used so far: Stella, Mooka (It stealthyly sneaks in everywhere, it’s like weed! Very pretty weed indeed! :-D), Diva Dance, Huggins, MySwing, Crescent Moon

I haven’t shaded yet and probably wont shade it until it is finished – don’t want to smudge anything here… As you can see, I’m not following any of the suggestions by Natalie. I can’t read them and although everybody’s art looks beautiful, it simply feels really good to just tangle as I want. And I’m more than happy with the result so far! So the motivation to continue is definitely there and I’ll keep you up to date in (more or less) regular intervals how the project grows. Many thanks again to Christina who made it possible! 🙂

It’s a String Thing #249 – One for the Diva

First time to enter Adele Bruno’s It’s a String Thing challenge! I’ve never managed to squeeze the tile in, but this time it worked. When I read that this challenge is (kinda) one for the Diva, Laura Harms, I immediately sat down and finished the tile in one go. Laura and Adele both are a huge inspiration by giving out (almost) weekly challenges which are a lot of fun. It’s a great commitment that takes a lot of time so it’s a real blessing to have them both!

Abeko was new to me (I had seen it many times but never used it), but Diva Dance, of course, is one of my go-to tangles.

Tangles used: Abeko, Diva Dance

Challenge #249 runs until Saturday evening, so if you want to enter, you still can! >>Here’s the link<< to Adele’s blog post with the challenge.

If you’re going to enter: Have fun!

Oh, and while we’re at it: This weekend will be LOTS of fun since I’ll be going to a big Zentangle meetup here in Germany! And I’m really looking forward to meeting Christina from Windspiel.art again. 🙂 So I guess there’ll be a lot to post about next week and lots of new artwork – quite likely including the beginning of my endless Zentangle project.

Hope to see you next week then!

The Endless Zentangle Project

A few weeks ago, one of my favourite Tanglers, Anica Grabovec, started a project called “The Endless Zentangle” and posted about it on Facebook. Its basically a little book with Zentangle tile size pages made of one veeeeeery long strip of paper folded like an accordion. Each week, you are to complete one “page” of it, always overlapping a little onto the next page. It looked like a lot of fun! But since I always start on projects but somehow almost never get to finish them, I discarded the idea of participating and forgot about it.

However, yesterday on Instagram I came across the project again and WOW… there was such amazing artwork there! I immediately got hooked and started to dig out information about the project. I soon found out that the challenge for this project seems to have come from a super-talented Russian tangler I had never heard of before, Natalie Plechkova. Unfortunately that means that pretty much all information on this project are in Russian. Google translate does help – but only when you’ve found an entry or a post about it… Let me help you here. 🙂

The best starting point if you want to participate would be Natalie Plechkova’s blog post about the challenge. There she also links to the weekly posts about the challenge.

• For some inspiration you can go to her Instagram account or search for #the_endless_zentangle or the Russian counterpart.

It feels like this project opens up a whole new part of the Zentangle community that I haven’t been aware of yet. So much new, gorgeous artwork to find, that’s really cool! However it’s a little sad that there’s this language barrier.. So.. If you’re participating or have found a cool post about it: Please leave a comment here! I’d love to check out what you found.

Maybe one day I’ll start such an accordion folded book, too! The project is definitely intriguing! But until then there’s still so much to finish first, hehe. Ooooops… XD

P.S.: The lovely Christina from W wie Windspiel was so sweet to craft me a ten page leporello from Fabriano tiepolo today! She made one for herself, too, and next week when we FINALLY meet again she’ll bring it along. She posted both hers and mine (the dark one) on Instagram – haven’t they turned out BEAUTIFULLY?! I’m really motivated to try to match the content of the book with its beautiful outside. THANK YOU so much, Christina! ❤

Diva Challenge #359: Finger Stringer (or something like that)

Back in April, the Zentangle Diva Laura Harms issued a challenge called “Finger Stringer”. The task was use our fingers in an “interesting” (thats what she said) way to create a string for us to tangle in.

Well, I tried to tackle that challenge. However, I’m not 100% sure if the two tiles I do qualify since I only tangled AROUND my hand. But almost as soon as she wrote the word “interesting” my mind was set to do something that would incorporate my other big hobby next to tangling/drawing: the game of Go (or 囲碁 (jap. igo), 圍棋 (chin. wéiqi) or 바둑 (kor. baduk).

+++ Little note abot Go, if you know it already or are not interested, please feel free to skip it +++

Probably you’ve heard from it, there has been QUITE a bit of a ruckus the last two years because AlphaGo revolutioned computer Go and the wayartificial intelligence work. Go basically is a 4,000 year old game originally from China. It’s played by two people alternately playing black and white round pieces on the intersections of a grid of 19×19 lines (other sizes are used, too, especially by beginners). To win you have to surround more free intersections than the other player. To check out the basic rules, click here. It’s such a deep, challenging and interesting game! And, just like in Zentangle, it sometimes allows me to zone out completely as I only focus on the board and the moves being played to find the best possible counter to an opponent’s move (within the range of my poor abilities XD). I’ve been playing for.. almost 15 years now, I think, and it is the only game so far that never gets boring.

+++ End of Go-related infos +++

Well, anyway.. this is my response to the Diva’s challenge:

a hand plays a move on a tangled Go board
Tangles used: Diva Dance, Button

two hands playing a move on a tangled Go board
Tangles used: Diva Dance

Especially the second tile is among my all time favourite tiles, I’m really happy how both of them turned out! It’s such a simple and obvious thing to do, but without the Diva I’d never have thought to do it. So, THANKS a lot for the inspiration, Laura!

Please also check out the wonderful artwork the Diva and everyone else did for this challenge by going to the Diva’s blog post!

This challenge inspired me to “go bigger” and tangle a mosaic of a whole board one day. I already laid it out on one of our Go boards: I’d have to tangle 25 or (rather, to have some kind of border going round) 30 tiles fo that. Wow.. that surely feels like a daunting task! But one step at a time… it might work out. I already picked the game, too, it’ll be Honinbo Shusaku’s famous ear-reddening-game from 1846. Hmm… or maybe an interesting game from my most favourite today’s professional player, Iyama Yuta? Hmmm….. You see, I still have to work out a few things until I can get started! Anyways, I’d just LOVE to hang it in our flat (which since we moved in definitely lacks some pictures on the wall). As soon as I start I’ll keep you up to date with my progress. Giving updates and seeing how I progress here will definitely motivate me to keep going.

Have a nice weekend!

My new tangle: Ann

We’re back online!!! To celebrate this I want to publish a post I have already written quite some time ago and I hope you’ll enjoy it!

I’ve waited quite a bit for this moment and now the time’s come to present to you my new tangle: Ann! Since I discovered Zentangle back in August 2011 I always wanted to invent or deconstruct my own tangle that I’m proud of because I think no one has thought of that idea before**. However, I’m not that inventive. I always need a point to start from and seeing that huge mass of already deconstructed patterns is always quite intimidating, too. So.. where to start? Some day in Spring 2017 I remembered IX, a tangle, that is based on a letter – I thought that might be something that I could try. Quite fast I settled on the letter N and the first four steps from the step-out below came to me pretty fast, too. But something was missing. I couldn’t point a finger at it, but it just wasn’t finished yet. However, I was at a loss for the last step.

The final form of Ann was found back in June 2017 (yep, I’m quite slow posting about it XD) when I sat down with my friend and fellow tangler Christina from W wie Windspiel to tangle in an Asian restaurant after a Zentangle meeting. I showed her what I had come up with and after discussing a few ideas she suggested adding a Cubine-like “window” between the N-starting-shapes. It immediately felt perfectly right and the final step from the following step-out was added. I was really happy that finally I had found what I was looking for. Now it was perfect! Still, there was one issue left: the name. But here my friend was a great help again. Due to the tangle being based on the letter N, she suggested the name this tangle has today. It was just perfect! I had never seen a tangle like this before* and I’m still very happy with it.

I already have deconstructed the tangle Sweaf, but like Printemps, we never came to develop some kind of long-term relationship. It’s nice but… actually not my kind of favourite tangle. It’s different with Ann, though. I love it and it has become one of my go-to tangles since it’s deconstruction a few months ago.

I won’t bore you any more with details, here are the step-outs to tangling Ann:

 

Here are a few tips for tangling Ann:
1. To make the tangle more lively, try tangling the N-shapes in different sizes, draw curved lines instead of straight ones and vary the spacing between the Ns.

2. You can draw the two “teeth” (they do look a bit like a vampire’s cuspid, don’t you think?) in step 3 either as one line (going back and forth) or as two lines. I  prefer 2 lines and to turn my tile in a way that the “tip” of the two “teeth” is pointing to me so that I can pull the pen towards me.

3. You CAN start drawing the inner line of the out “tooth” in the center (step 3). However, I think it looks more interesting if you don’t start in the middle but a little off – you can vary the look here very nicely, too.

4. You can either fill in the inner “tooth” or the outer one (like in the deconstruction above) of Ann – or maybe you even come up with another variation?

5. For the Cubine-like “window” first draw the diagonal lines from two or three corners towards the center, then connect them by drawing a line that’s parallel to the shape it’s drawn in. Or maybe drawing the diagonal lines from all for corners is interesting, too? (is this a window/hole then, or a lifted area? You decide by shading it accordingly!) Or changing the corners from where the diagonal lines are drawn towards the center?

And here are a few tiles I tangled with Ann:


Some colour involved 🙂
Tangles used: Ann, Fengle


My first try on Margaret Bremner’s rope string.
Tangles used: Ann, ING, Paradox, Tipple, Tripoli, Zedbra


Ann as a border on a 3Z
Tangles used: Ann, ‘nzeppel


Ann as a border on a Zendala
Tangles used: Ann, Fife

Tangles used: Ann, Crescent Moon

Now, this is really exciting for me, I cannot wait to see what tanglers from all over the world will do with Ann! If you tried it and published a tile with Ann, I’d really love to see it! Please link to it in the comments or drop me a message on Twitter and I’ll come and pay a visit.

Happy tangling and hope to see you soon!

Yvonne

** As I said, I’m not aware of any pattern that is just like Ann and at this point I’m quite certain that it is unique. However, it’s impossible to know all patterns and tangles in the world. If you’ve already seen this pattern somewhere before, I’d appreciate it if you’d drop me a message with a link to it.

Diva Challenge #358: UMT Pickpocket by Tomàs Padrós

Thank you for all the sympathetic and encouraging comments for last week’s post! Each of them really brightened my day. 🙂 This is going to be a short post since the situation hasn’t changed one bit since last week… Let’s hope there’ll be a more positive development soon. However, since Pickpocket by Tomàs Padrós is such a great tangle, I simply couldn’t keep from tangling and posting this week’s response to the Diva’s challenge! Tomàs really has contributed quite a few wonderful patterns already, so I decided to mix Pickpocket with another tangle of Tomàs’s that I really like a lot, Irradial:

Tangles used: Irradial, Pickpocket

I recently saw this “‘nzeppeled/jewel-ised version of Irradial and wanted to use it before I forget about it. Pickpocket did take a little time to practice but it’s really worth it, I love the weaving effect a lot! And yes, I confess: I did use a ruler to place the dots this time. O:-) I like it tidy as it is here – although the Diva’s wavy interpretation is really cool, too. Do check it out if yiou haven’t already seen it and of course all the other great contributions to this week’s challenge! Click here to go to the Diva’s post to see it all.

Have a great week and lots of fun with Pickpocket!

Diva Challenge #357 (and the internet) Paradox

Long time no see! I haven’t been able to post for a few months now due to internet issues. If the story is not of interest for you, feel free to skip the seperated text and scroll down to the pictures for this week’s challenge.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

Since we moved flat at the beginning of December, the telephone companies involved (yes, it’s more than one by now which makes everything even more complicated) haven’t been able to re-connect us to the internet. It’ss a long story by now and one which usually brings my temper up so I won’t say no more about itnow. The whole situation will continue for at least another 4 weeks now so we’ll be left with no internet at home for half a year.Incredible in times like these in a country like Germany – but I’m sure that anybody from Germany can confirm the horror stories from companies like Telekom. They are true indeed. 😦

Since we fully depend on very limitted data budgets from our mobile phones, I haven’t posted at all here since the blogging does take a lot of data from my budget. However, we’re now sitting in a train heading home and I intend to fully use up my 200MB you can get for free here. And since I’ve been busy tangling I can show you at least what I tangled for thhis week’s challenge – which is very little of all the tangling I’ve been doing in the laast few months. As soon as we’re back online, you can expect tons of updates here.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

But without further ado: Here are the two monotangle tiles I did for the Diva Challenge #357:


Unshaded (I finally remembered to take apicture before shading!:-))


After shading

Tangles used on all tiles: Paradox
(All pictures were taken on board of the train so they’re not as good as usual.. sorry!)

Hope to be posting again soon and to have you back here then again, too!
Happy tangling and hapy Easter for you all!

Time’s moving fast…

It’s unbelievable how fast time’s moving these days! I want to thank everybody who left a comment for the last post and I’m sorry I’m so very late to thank you. Lots of small things distracted me from coming back to you earlier (and doing other blog-related stuff I’ alluded to in the past) and it’s not only been the move, which will take place a little later than we had hoped at first. However, it still looks like we’re moving before next year begins and we do keep our fingers crossed that there’ll be no more changes. It already worked for the new kitchen! It was supposed to be delivered in January next year, but last week we got a note that it’ll be in the nick of time before Christmas! But I’m bothering you all with boring stuff, sorry. 😉

Again my monthly post comes at the last of the month. I guess I just need that deadline… But better have a post late than never! Here’s the latest tile, no challenge, just tangling:


Tangles used: Barberpole, CO2, Fassett, Pepper, Printemps, Verdigogh

I really like the Printemps-“snails” with the Verdigogh-“tentacles”! And I cant’t help it but this one hast a winter feeling… even though it’s not even winter yet! Or maybe it is because it’s been getting much cold as of late? I don’t know but I hope you’re warm and comfy and have an enjoyable time tangling whereever you are!

Thanks a lot for stopping by and see you next month, too!

Yvonne

Diva Challenge #334

Very busy and very tired at the moment, that’s why this’ll be a very short post. Inspired by this week’s Diva Challenge I modestly present:


Tangles used: N’Zeppel (“crazy” shading variation), Printemps, Paradox, Tipple

I like this shading variation of N’Zeppel and will definitely use it again! I’d also like to try another piece with several different shading variations mixed together. I’m sure that this would look very cool!
I didn’t shade the whole because of various reasons. The most important one is that I’m extremely tired right now but have to post now if I want to have a post for September. The other reason ist that I thought that in this way crazy N’Zeppel would “pop” more from the tile. It didn’t really happen but it’s still good looking.

The next two months will be a bit harder to post because we are going to move. ❤ I'm still planning to post at least once per month. However, moving is also the "death" of Inktober this year for me. If you're participating I wish you lots of fun and a lot of stamina so you'll be able to complete the challenge. I'll definitely be folloing Inktober activities an Twitter and I'm looking forward to enjoying all this great rt that'll be posted then.

"See" you soon!

Diva Challenge #329: Fragment D-1

Wow, that was close! A last minute post before August is over.. At the beginning of the year I wanted to post at least once a month and this time I barely made it. The culprit is the game of Go, which I’ve been playing for more than 10 years now. Since the European Go Congress 2017 started at the end of July, my love of the game came back and I spent much more time studying and playing in a short time than I had since the start of the year! I did tangle a bit in between but it’s nothing that I can share with you for now. It might take a little bit longer, but you’ll see. 🙂

Anyway – how time flies! A few weeks ago already I started this tile for the Diva Challenge #329 about fragment D1. This is really a fascinating fragment and I can imagine myself sitting down at my desk for another few hours exploring the possibilities of shading and combinations with other tangles. Such fun!


Tangles used: Fragment D1, Fassett, Paradox

I especially like the combination with Paradox and I think I’ll experiment with those two a little bit more. This is also one of the first tiles ever that I did and where I like the sepia Micron in. It always looks streaky (when filling in areas) or much darker than in everybody else’s artwork.

Please also visit the Diva’s blog and check out all the other great artwork that was posted for this challenge!

This is a short post but I hope that next month won’t be as short – and especially not as late. Although that might be hard, there are two Go tournaments and our league team’s yearly meeting coming up. But tournaments usually means travelling, too. And on the train tangling is not a problem. So I guess you’ll be seeing “travelling tangles” of one kind or another next time. 🙂

See you!

P.S.: As time flies by, you might also already want to think about what to do for Inktober this year!

Zentangle Meeting Germany 2017 in Magdeburg

WARNING: LOT’S OF PICTURES AHEAD! Smartphone user might want to consider their remaining data volume. Don’t say that I haven’t warned you! 😉

A little later than I hoped to post here’s the promised report about the special event I mentioned in my last blogpost. As I hinted then, this weekend was destined to be full of Zentangle. Martina, a kind and very generous soul from Magdeburg, had organized a Zentangle meeting in her beautiful hometown, Magdeburg, including accommodation in varying price categories. I’ve been looking forward to this weekend since it had be announced first in January and finally on Friday the day had come to go to Magdeburg!

Diva Challenge #262: UMT: Fassett by Lynn Mead and upcoming Zentangle weekend

In the last few months I haven’t really posted anything about my plans for completing 1 year of Diva challenges – so it’s more than about time I post this tile! Which is already 5 months old (you can tell from the straight edges of the tile ;-D) and which I never got around to post here… But I still love it very, very much, especially the contrast between the curvy and rather straight lines.

DC-262
Tangles used: Fassett, Printemps

Challenge #262 was to use Lynn Mead’s beautiful tangle Fassett. I thought it would be nice to keep the number of tangles small this time and to leave some space empty for a change – and the frame really works well in my opinion.

This challenge REALLY got me hooked on Fassett and I’ve been using it a lot ever since I completed this challenge. Just like Paradox, Trelina, Ginili and – the most revent addition to the team – Pepper it has become one of my favourite tangles and is probably my foremost “go-to-tangle” at the moment. All thanks to you, Lynn and Laura! 🙂

If everything goes as planned, there’ll be a HUGE change on the blog in the months to come. I don’t think I can reveal anything yet but it’s something that I’ve been looking forward to do very much for a very long time. Although you won’t be seeing anything new in the next months to come rest assured that there’s an east wind coming… (yes, I do love BBC Sherlock a lot ;-D )

Next weekend will be a very special one: Via Facebook a Zentangle weekend has been organized for a few lucky souls who were at the right place at the right time to register – places filled very quickly and I myself only got in by the skin of my teeth. Since I’m having a very busy time at work, I’m really looking forward to tangling a whole weekend and meeting new, kind people! I’m especially looking forward to meeting Arva from W wie Windspiel who is also an active member of the German ATC website kakao-karten.de. As far as I know, no CZTs are coming, so it’ll just be tangling, talking, eating and of course more tangling. Maybe I can catch up on more Diva challenges that weekend. Or have the time to work on another project… who knows. I don’t really want to make any plans – although I do guess that our host will keep us very busy (I hope not too busy! 😉 ). Since I’ll be arriving the day before, I hope to get in some urban sketching as well. On Friday I bought a very nice book abouth sketching architecture by Liz Steel called “5-Minute Sketching Architecture” and I’m looking forward very much to trying out some of her useful tipps. I’ll try to post a few pictures next weekend as we’re tangling along and of course I’ll be writing a blogpost with lots of pictures and the artwork we created afterwards.

Have a great week!

Yvonne

Diva Challenge #318: Diptych

It’s been so long since my last Diva challenge but I had wanted to join it for quite some time. Since the slump is (more or less) over (for now), I sat down this evening and this is the result:


Tangles used: Barberpole, CO2, Fescu, Hollibaugh, Hypnotic, ‘Nzeppel, Pepper, Trelina, Zedbra

I’m really curious to see what tanglers from all over the world will do with this challenge! If you’re curious, too, then be sure check out what’s been linked to the Divas blogpost!

A short post tonight if you want to read some rambling you can check out my last post about the urge to create.

Have fun tangling and see you soon!

The Urge to Create

Long time no see! Again. I’m sorry but after posting in April I kind of entered a little “slump” and I really lost all desire to draw or create any kind of art, even Zentangle. This sometimes happens and I’m not really sure why this happened – although I think I’m starting to discover a pattern: This tends to happen whenever I participate in any drawing challenge I decide to join on my favourite ATC-site kakao-karten.de. Whenever I’m joining I’m really into the theme of the challenge and I really want to give it my best. However, this seems to leed to me failing at creating any ideas that I like and that I really want to realise for the challenge. Maybe I’m pressuring myself too much? I don’t know.. Even when I tried to be more relaxed no ideas came to me and when the day of the deadline came I had nothing to offer. It’s really frustrating…

Most interestingly this time Zentangle helped me out of this state. At the start of the year I decided to create at least one piece of Zentangle art per month and I didn’t get around to it until last Thursday. Since it was a holiday, I decided to sit down at the table und just “get over with it” now. I drew a string, jotted down 20 tangles that came to my mind and I took the 20-sided dice my husband gave me and just rolled it until the tile was tangled. The combinations were definitely surprising but positively so. Still, on several occasions (especially during shading) I’d really would have liked to just go and leave it like it is… doing something else… But after I had finished the tile, I felt really great and the desire to create something was totally back. That’s why this tile will always be in my heart:


Tangles used: Cyme, Diva Dance, Hollibaugh, Hypnotic, Pepper, Ruutz, Shattuck

I had to work on Friday but on Saturday morning I sat down again at my desk and created yet another tile, again with the list of tangles and the trusty dice – and I really like it, too. Kind of have a feeling that I’ll have to add a little Pepper more frequently on the future because it really spices up my tiles (bad pun inteded 😉 ). Here it is:


Tangles used: Auraknot, Diva Dance, Hollibaugh, ‘Nzeppel, Pepper, Shattuck

I even have a third tile half-finished here which I couldn’t finish yet because suddenly some really good ideas for my ATC drawing challenges popped up. I’ll have to work on them for now since the deadlines are approaching quickly (and I’m very happy that I finally have something to offer after dropping out so often before!), but it feels really good to have something to come back to in breaks or after the ATCs are done. Now I have to hope that the ideas work out fine and that I can draw and craft them as I want to. Wish me luck!*

And, of course: Have a good time tangling!

* If you stumple upon a paper die in the form of a revolver (preferrably a modern-looking one) with a maximum size of 15mm / about half an inch, please DO let me know asap (even if asap ist in 2020 XD). My research so far has been without result, I only found pasta and cookie cutters, but I do have this one idea that I’d love to make real and I need this die or 20-35 die-cut mini-guns. Wouldn’t want to cut stamped guns by hand… although I’d do it if that was the only way” >:-)

Diva Challenge #283: UMT Centre Square

Another post I wrote back in January 2017 which I didn’t get around to post.

———–

Another year has come but the Diva is still taking her well-deserved break. Time to catch up on some of the challenges of 2016 that I didn’t have time for, the big goal (for this year) is to finish them all so I have a complete mosaic for 1 whole year of Diva challenges. Yeah, another challenge for myself since I already failed like… 1.000. But it doesn’t matter, I’ll get there some day eventually!

The tile for challenge #283 below actually has a long history. Some would say it’s full of misunderstandings, others would say it’s.. giving up too early on a promising opportunity. I was really motivated when the challenge was up and I wanted to incorporate tangleations and all kinds of fancy stuff into this tile. The challenge was to use the tangle Centre Square by Aleesha Sattva and was really eager to try something new since I had just recently gotten myself the wonderful ebook Overlapping Zentangle by Eni Oken and experimented with going over and under. Centre Square looked like a great opportunity to play with this concept. However, after the centre grid was finished, I was absolutely not satisfied with the outcome, it looked not at all like how I imagined it to be. And I put it away. In the months to come I looked at it again and again but it didn’t speak to me until late December 2016 when I finally finished it. I’m quite satisfied with it now (although it is too full AGAIN.. will I ever learn? X’D) but it was a real struggle. Here’s the result of the fight:

Diva Challenge #283
Tangles used: Centre Square, Demi, Marasu (not coiled up – or maybe only very loosely coiled up?), Printemps, Tipple (in a looooong string)

One thing I really like is the combination of Centre Square and Demi in this tile. And how Printemps is such a good contrast to all the straight lines in this tile. Ok, I have to admit it: The tile is not that bad, ok… 🙂 Centre Square is a really nice tangle and I think I’ll use it now and then in the future. Thanks for sharing, Aleesha!
