If you haven’t already discovered it, while I was offline, Sandy Bartholomew posted up a storm! She posted the directions for her tangle pattern, Flutter Tile, revealed that she is selling Zentangled sneakers at her Etsy store, and last but not least, she WAS taking pre-orders for her new Totally Tangled zentangle book. They areContinue reading “I’m back, and two tangles were posted while I was gone!”
Recently, I was viewing Fatquarter’s blog, and enjoying her beautiful stitching. You know me, I see, and then there’s a tangle, lol! Check out her blog, and the stitches that inspired this pattern.

I remembered the last few I asked about, but I know there were more. If I’ve asked but haven’t posted your work, pleaseContinue reading “Art from Shelly Beauch and Rose Twofeather”
I won’t lie. This isn’t an easy tangle. It took me a lot of practice to get it right. It’s best done in a space at least twice as tall as it is wide. It isn’t an exact tessallation as I draw it, but it could be. I think for zens, it is best toContinue reading “My Tangle Patterns: Tessallation”
Rick and Maria have published another newsletter. This issue contains a new tangle pattern ‘Sh-rock’ created by Diane Lachance. It’s perfect for St Patrick’s Day. They’ve also added another entry to their blog. They hope people will use the blog to ask questions.
Suzanne has posted Feathers, zentangle #10 on her blog.
