Today’s Tangled Tuesday post almost didn’t happen, as while I have been tangling, I haven’t been feeling well and therefore haven’t had the energy to do much at all (including writing blog posts). It’s nothing serious – just a minor cold – but I’ve been coughing throughout the night which disturbs my sleep and makes me tired during the day. Thankfully, though, I have the next two weeks off work, so have plenty to time to rest and recover (oh, and tangle!).
This week I learned Oybay, Paris, Sanibelle, Echo, Puchong, Reticulated, 4Fun, and Marnie, all from TanglePatterns.com.
I also learned Greek Baubles by Neil Burley of perfectly4med.
I celebrated the start of my holidays by tangling a 6″ x 6″ ZIA, which included a bunch of new-to-me and previously unused patterns as well as a few fun little dew drops (using the Dew Drop Tutorial by Lynn Mead, CZT).
It’s been awhile since I worked on a bigger piece with no particular agenda or guidelines, and I really enjoyed the process.
Several of the challenge hosts are taking a well-deserved break over the holiday season, but I did manage to find a couple of projects to do this week!
I started out with Diane & Carolien’s Weekly Challenge #37: Tangle with T-O-Q, choosing the tangles Test Pattern, Oshun, and Quill. All three patterns were ones I’d previously learned but had not yet had a chance to use in a finished project, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to do so.
Finally I completed joey’s weekly tangle challenge #92, which was another template – this time a gift with bow – to be filled in with tangles.
Now on to a new week of tangling!
