Happy Easter Holiday

 I have been Tangling (and quilting for my customers - so have been pretty busy) ... here is a sneak peek at something I am working on at the moment for a friend.  You can see here I have used my patterns Tadpegs, Swirly Blossom, Fern and Baby Fern as well as Zentangle patterns Fescu, Jetties, Finery, Printemps as well as Zinger, and I am sure by the time I finish, I will have used a whole heap more.

I am also working on a large project which I will be able to reveal soooon I hope.  I am not very good at keeping exciting stuff to myself.



On Saturday morning I did a short Adult Education Workshop for Beginners Zentangle and it was a great class - everyone enjoyed themselves and we had a fantastic venue with great light.

This is my baby - Jet - he loves to help me tangle and just has to see what I am up to. I'm sure he would hold the pen if he could!

I would like to wish everyone a great Easter holiday break and hope you have time to Tangle.   I will be back on line when I return from Melbourne where I am doing a number of classes as Michelle's Sewing Basket - I am also the guest speaker for the Australian Quilting Guild of Victoria - very excited about that!

Happy Tangling for now ... see you all soon ... Hugs Jane x

Zentangle Tiles at my Sydney Workshop & A Visitor

Last month I was in Sydney teaching Zentangle ... you know how it is ... you are busy teaching so don't take as many photos as you should.

There was some seriously good Tangling happening.  Here are some of the tiles from the girls in Campbelltown NSW.

This class was organised by SandiO ... a fabulous textile artist who specialises in felting.  I could have taken some of her creations home ... you can visit SandiO on her blog.  Thank you Sandi for a successful class.

This is Lisa ... all the way from Houston TX (well she really flew in from Sydney to take a full day one-on-one workshop with me). We had a great day tangling.  I hope you enjoyed Tasmanian hospitality Lisa, you did some great tangles.

Okay that is it for now ... I have a busy week ahead quilting customer quilts, a haircut and running a teenager around as well as working on a large Zentangle project ... more on that later down the track.

Happy tangling for now ... Jane x

A glimps of Outback Australia

I love the beauty of the Outback ... I took this photograph while I was in New South Wales last week - it says Outback for me.

I hope you have all been tangling away while I have been gone.   Don't you just love Zentangle's new pattern Mooka ... Maria you have done it again!

I hope to have some more of my Zentangles to show you next week.  Happy Tangling for now ... Jane x

A commission

I have spent some time while I have been away on a special commission piece - I do love making these little wonders.

What a wonderful way to spend two days ... I hope all in Australia are enjoying these beautiful Autumn days we are having at the moment. 

Happy Tangling for now ... Jane x
