New Pattern - Scrumble

I call this pattern "scrumble" because I got the idea from wool when doing some crochet scrumbling.   You can play with the shading to make individual bobbles pop out or make it look like you have a cable by just shading one line.

You can see this pattern in my last post.

I quickly drew this together today when I remembered that I said I would post it.

I have also been playing some more with Zendalas ... I do really like them a lot.

You can incorporate anything into them.

I also did a one-on-one tutorial last week - this was very successful and is a good lead up to my Adult education class called "Mini Ink Art"  in Launceston on Sunday 1 August 2010  - the first class is nearly full - so if you want to join in you had better book soon.

Happy tangling for now .... Jane x

Tangles and Zendalas

Okay I have been busy ... but I have been Tangling - so here are some of my tangles for you to see ...

This is my first Zendala and I am quite happy with it - the pic doesn't really show the shading very well but still nice I think.

This is a shot of the Tangles I have done in the past few weeks.

I have gone small ... I really enjoy doing these really small tangles - I can do one before I put my head on my pillow to go to sleep at night ... dreaming of tangles and such like.

This simple one is one of my favourites.

In this one I have drawn a new pattern based on a close up of woolen fibres  - it is on the left hand side - I'm not sure what to call it ... but I'll draw out the steps and post them here this week.

I do like geometric and can't help going back to it time after time - must be the left brain working!

And last pic for today ... a mixture.

I'll be off now ... got to get some quilting work done this week and then we have the Biggest Morning Tea on Thursday ... what a great day - hope we raise some serious money for that.

Happy Tangling ... Jane x

Busy Times

I have been busy quilting customer quilts for the past couple of weeks - but I have been tangling a little every couple of days.   Haven't taken photos though.

This Tangle here is one I gave to my sister when she moved back to the Northern Territory to live.

The string is one that I purchased from Zentangle ... I love  how I didn't have to think about it at all.   Sometimes it is the simple patterns that look so good and I keep going back to these - you will see that a lot of them are from Zentangle's kit.

So I am going back to the quilting room for now ... Happy Tangling ... Jane x

Tangler's Block!

Stuck ... can you have tanglers block?  I need to sit somewhere quiet for a few minutes to finish this one off..

So here is some of what hangs on my refridgerator ... this one is A5 sized and from a few years ago now.  I like it.

And this hangs on my kitchen wall .... most of these tangles are from Zentangle's pre-strung tiles that I purchased  from them last year.   I like the pre-strung tiles because you can just start tangling.  I pre-string my own tiles now ... about 10 at a time, and take them in a little bag with a pigma pen - everywhere I go.

You never know when you will have a few minutes to draw.

Happy Tangling for now ... Jane x
