Reticula and Fragments in my calendar

This entire post is about Reticula and Fragments. In my calendar I have tried to focus more on the Reticulas and less on the fragments. The Reticula is the net which keeps everything together. First I tried 6 different Reticulas only, but then my curiosity won and I had to try them all with different Fragments. I worked with my Lamy-pen most of the time, not the micron. Here is the result:




16th-18th of May I did publish in an earlier post but I want to publish them together with the last three days because it is obvious when you look both pictures  what it means to use different Reticulas! The fragments are all from Zentangle Primer, but the Reticulas are from patterns I know well.



19th-24th of May came in a row. I had much fun doing this as I like surprises! It might look like a mess sometimes but there is a structure to follow!

More Reticula and Fragment done with fountainpen

My fountainpen Lamy and I are old friends. I love to write poems with it, I have done a lot of sketches and drawings with it. I have tangled with it a lot in my sketchbooks. Now I wanted to try it on a tile (Fabriano Tiepolo) as I saw the results of Lynn Shelton Mead! 


The nib of my pen is a little bit broader than on Micron O,1. But I like how easily the ink flows over the surface. It is a different feeling and the pen is better in my hand than Micron. This is not the last tile I´ve done with my fountainpen!!!

I have tried to focus on the Reticula for some days now. The Reticula Glace (In Melinda Barlow´s video) is so fascinating. I tried it here with Fragment L25. It is simple but I like it a lot!

Showgirl vs Paizel

Showgirl(Vicki Bassett)is one of those pattern I do love a lot. Today I went back to it thank´s to Melinda Barlow´s video. Sometimes there are a lot of new patterns around taking my focus, that I forget those I have been doing a lot just because I love them! But here she comes on a rennaisance tile:


As I have worked with Paizel (Angie Vangelis) due to the Square One focus it also came along with Showgirl. Paizel is a pattern I learned because of Square One and it will surely be one of my go-to patterns. It is so pretty! And as it is with Showgirl both can be drawn in a lot of ways. Here I wanted to try the technique Melinda Barlow shows in her video according to the shading. The shading is made with colorpencils and turpentine (odorless). So fun!

Striping the Diva´s challenge

Striping is a challenge I remember from last year. It isn´t about the pattern Striping, it is about using tangles in a striping way as I think about it. So here comes my entry this time:


Well yes, I took a before pic. Before shading and highlighting.


After shading and highlighting. This is made on a piece from an old watercolorpainting. Recycled Fabriano heavyweight watercolorpaper. I love this paper though I have to use thicker pens than on original tiles since the surface is quite different. I didn´t use the distress markers for the shading this time, I only went on with watercolor and graphite. The patterns are: Paizel (Angie Vangelis), Sula (Susan Kelley Pundt), Lealad (Lily Moon), Tattle (Milde Weiss), Nekton and Crescent Moon. I am still happy about the idea of recycling my old sins!

Reticula - addictive!

This morning I watched a video by Melinda Barlow again. I was so excited, I made the entire page in my calendar from this. Take a look at the video first! Here is my entire page:


Watching Melinda´s explanation about the Reticula, I found out some points. The first one was that I should concentrate more on the reticulas rather than the fragments right now! The second point was, that I have been using some patterns as Reticulas quite a lot, without noticing what I have done. The third point is, this opens up even more possibilities with the Reticula-Fragment thinking!

Structures has always been interesting to me, especially in art. On this entire page I have done three Reticulas. They all eminate from patterns I love to do. The first one on 16th I got from Linda Barlow´s video and is a pattern called Glace. Or you can see, it also is an Oge-grid! 

Whow! Some days are better than others even if it is raining outdoors!

Paizel and the calendar

Paizel by Angie Vangalis is the focus-pattern in Square One right now. I have seen it before but not used it.


I filled in the spaces with Nekton as Angie did on her example and I like the way it changed the look of the pattern. Nekton is not a favourite pattern of mine but here I can see the qualities! Paizel is very meditative to draw and easy to learn. The other patterns that came by are Antidots (Anita Roby Lavery), She Leaf (Yu Ru Chen)and Tipple (Zt).
By the way, I love to work on tiles even more than before. The paper, Fabriano Tiepolo 290g (same as in original tiles) has such a lovely surface I can´t get enough of this.  


In the calendar I went on trying some different fragments in various ways. As I look at this page I find it quite messy and not what I wanted it to be but this is the way it went. I like the 14th most. Fragment T4 was the one that caused me trouble from the start. I think I will go for it another round and only use that one, now I left it this way because I didn´t belive this fragment liked me!

IAST 194

I haven´t left the idea of combining recycling and tangling. I opened up a box where I kept some of my old, not satisfying watercolors, chose a couple of them and cut them up into tiles, 8,9 x 8,9 cm. I guess some of them will work fine, some not. But that is not the point! The point is this; to recycle old paintings which all are made on high quality paper, is so refreshing and satisfying! I won´t show any beforepics, since that´s not the point either. 


This tile I wanted to use for IAST 194 featuring Adele Bruno´s last tanglepattern Trella. You can read about it here in her blog.
I used it together with N´Zeppel and Flukes, both original zentangles.

10th, 11th and 12th of May

This page i only use Fragments from the Zentangle Primer. I have thought about that for a while inspired by Simone Menzel´s work.


It was very fun and I only used one kind of Reticula, the one with squares. I started with one I have tried before, W7,  then I  went on with P6, M7, P5 and F2. M7 became a favourite! I think I will go on with this Fragment-Reticula-thing for a while it is so fun!

I talked a lot about Molygon in yesterday post. Today I tried it on a black tile and I got a tip from Sue Zanker, Australian tangler, to make them fatter.


Now I think I found a way to work with Molygon that I feel more comfortable with. This one was really relaxing to do and I like the way it talks to me.

Molygon

I am the Diva´s challenge this week is the tanglepattern Molygon. I decided to give it a round, though I´ve not liked my result when I have tried it earlier. It looks so easy and it is easy to learn. I have seen other tanglers making amazing things with this pattern. It is fun to draw. But it is something that causes me trouble. So I wanted to give it a chance once again. I started to put it in a Dingbaz:



The Molygon is so small here but anyhow it needed some embellishment. The striping made it look like worms of a kind. I like the Dingbatz-idea so I am pleased with this. Next one is with watercolor:



I didn´t want to add other tangles, I wanted to keep it simple. As I did this I saw that Molygon is a tangle that doesn´t stand on its own without embellishments, at least when I do it. Maybe it will if I blow it up....But it is still fun to draw.

Then I made this:



I filled most of them with Indyrella. This time it went a little more 3D. The last one:



I liked this one better than the others. Before I did this I looked att Melinda Barlow´s video, which helped a lot. I was more satisfied this time with the result and maybe Molygon will become a friend of mine one day.

7th, 8th and 9th of May


The patterns in the calendar the last three Days:

7th of May: Balo (Hsin Yah Hsu), Lenche (mine), Tropicana (Kate Ahrens), Cheesecloth (Suzanne McNeill) and Layered Crescentmoon and a kind of ribbon that I don´t know if it exists as a pattern. But now it does anyhow!

8th of May: Lenche (mine), Papz (mine), Balo (Hsin-Yah Hsu), Faux Weave (Helen Williams) and the ribbon I don´t know about.

9th of May: Papz (mine), Garlic cloves (Jacquelien Bredenoord), Balo (Hsin-Yah Hsu) and that something else.ribbon.

The last two days has been occupied of what was going on with my dad. Surgery today. He is on his way back we hope. Tangling in this mood has been a great thing to do. My evening meditation I also did with my dad in mind. 


The patterns are: Papz, Striping, Tripoli, Arukas, Fescu and Black Pearlz.

3Z - for Dad

Today my dad is going to the hospital. Tomorrow he is going through a big surgery. He is 88 years old. I am not there physically but with my mind. Of course I am worried. But right now there is nothing I can do. He is in my tangling. My thoughts go to him. My prayers as well.


As I look at the result of today´s tangling on 3Z I get a picture of the subconcious process going on. And it deals with my dads situation.  I can see that. But I also can see there is balance and strength. I appreciate that and I am thankful. The patterns are Crescent moon and of course Papz, the pattern I made up for my Dad. I filled it with pearls but now when I look at it they look like lamps....

I thought of giving this tile some color. Maybe it will come up... or not. Today it looks like this anyhow.

söndag 7 maj 2017

What about the string and Balo?

This is my first tile with Balo (Hsin-Ya Hsu).I wanted to learn about how this tangle works. I mainly to use a string when I tangle. It is like the string takes the responsibility, not me, where everything is going.



Actually there is no string in this one. Or more precisely: I made the dots in the corners and the pencil-line connecting the dots, then the penciled line also became the string!

The pattern Balo is a Ribbon, and a ribbon that takes it´s place and will be dominating any tile. It is very pretty and kind of lace-like. I found it easy to learn and relaxing to draw. In the middle comes Assunta again. I think I start to love drawing Assunta after having tried it a lot lately. 

On tanglepattern.com there is a tangle-randomizer. It works very good also with strings. there are 250 strings published on the site. I have tried them all, but now I re-try them now and then with the help of the randomizer. Today I got string 65 (Pat Ferguson). Maybe it is hard to follow, but it is there!



I found this string perfect for Starfish flower (Nicole Dreyer). It is my first Starfish flower but I belive it won´t be the last. It is a pattern built on Echoing lines and very fun to do! The others are Fun Bee (Beate Winkler), Crescentmoon (Zt), Meer (Zt), and Tipple (Zt).

4th, 5th and 6th of May


4th of May: I started exploring Assunta (Zt), a tangle I  am not familiar with. I have seen it some times but it hasn´t attracted me. The negative form in Assunta looks like Cadent as Linda Farmer noted on the description of the tangle. It is a little bit tricky, the pointing "leaves" or "petals" goes in several directions. As I played with it I tried to transform it into cadent but Huggins was in the way so it went totally crazy! 

5th of May: I wanted to try Carole Ohl´s fragment-play with Pokeleaf. I did, but I draw the grid with my Micron, not with pencil and I think it came out pretty cool! 

6th of May: I used the idea of Dingbatz, to make frames and put the tangles inside. One Scallamp had to join, though it broke the frame att took Pokeleaf with her! Assunta and Huggins stayed calm.

fredag 5 maj 2017

Scallamp

Scallamp is something else! The pattern is deconstructed from a lamp bought in IKEA! I have got an idea what lamp it could be. But I prefer to look at it as a pattern and it is so nice to draw! Thank´s Sarah Uram for charing it! And thanks to the Diva for using it in the challenge!


Now i am back to b/w and I used Papz (mine) and 5C Aura in the background. This is the way it went. I was interruptet not one time but several times so I almost gave it up. But I didn´t and that is a satisfaction. Anyhow this is the way it turned out during these conditions but i will try it again when I have the opportunity to start and finish without interuption!

IAST 193

My first post after a long time to Adele Bruno´s challenge IAST = it´s a string thing.This challenge is also a tribute to Lily Moon. You can see why on Lily´s blog here. Lily is one of those bright shining stars on the sky of zentangle. Once you have seen her art you´ll know why. She is outstanding and a great inspiration to tanglers all over the world. Ofcourse I wanted to participate in this IAST. Here is my entry:


I choose to work on a rennaisance tile this time. To me it is very much Lily Moon! When I first saw her art it was on rennaisance tiles and I was absolutely stunned. I wanted to try it and ordered these tiles from U.S. That was quite long ago now.

The tangles I have used are some of my favourites from Lily Moon: Drogon, Andante, Reel and fragments from Amphora. I also used some golden Tipple. Doing this I was thinking of her and hoping she will find some light in darkness.

I am the Diva´s weekly challenge 314

The UMT this month is about Scallamp (Sarah Uram). UMT means Use My Tangle and is a recurrent challenge from the Diva. This is fun, it is a way to find unexpected patterns and Scallamp is such a pattern. I went on recycling the same watercolorpainting as last week.



As the grang is rough (surface of the watercolorpaper), it is quite difficult to use Micron 0,1. I started this with the Micron but than I grabbed my Lamy Fountainpen, which worked so good on this surface! One problem though, I forgot that the ink from the fountainpen isn´t waterproof! So shading with my distress marker almost went into a mess!the rest of the shading is graphite for that reason and I used white charcoal and white gellypen for highlitning.

Except Sallamp I used Ruutz (Eni Oken), 5C Aura an 5C Wrapped (both Ina Sonnenmoser)

From this I learned, that I´ll look for some old watercolorpaintings with fine grang to recycle! 

1st, 2nd and 3d of April. It is all about Dingbatz!

Dingbatz is taking over mydesk right now. Small little drawings I didn´t know about a week ago. Or I didn´t have a name for them. I have seen them in books and on typhographical things. They are all special. All unique. Or should be. I had not connected Dingbatz, or Dingbats as the typhographical term is, with zentangle. But Rick and Maria did and trying to do this it is all obvious. So my latest calendar page is more sketchy than it use to be:


First I tried to identify the patterns I used, but now I have decided not to do that. It is like going into the djungle, there comes new things all the time! And working on this there will be more fragments than anything else. Ofcourse, if there are obvious patterns like Paradox and Fescu f.ex. I can name them. As I did here.

Dingbatz are fun to draw on Bijou-tiles or on ATC:s. Here is one little Bijou:


Yes, it is easy to identify Pokeleaf and the Mooka-parts. But from now on I won´t talk about that when it is about Dingbatz.  They are fun to do and absolutely addictive! They are made in a very short time or no time at all. And very special! Love to do it!

I have a lot of beautiful books in my library. One is a collection of Russian Fairy-tales and these fairy-tales are illustrated by an artist called I. Bilibin.  His drawings are amazing and there are a lot of Dingbats to be found on the pages. Look at this one:

One more for the Divas Amandaday-challenge

I love recycling. I use it very much in my art. So I wanted to make one more for Earth Day and for the Diva´s challenge this week. When I have done something that I don´t like at the moment, I don´t throw it away.  I keep it for further use. I have some watercolors kept in a pile and now I cut up one (on heavyweight watercolor-paper)  in tile-size and tangled on it! As it was a quite big watercolor-painting, I have a lot of tiles from this! Here is the first one:


The surface is not as smooth as on original tiles but it worked and I get a good feeling to remake an old watercolor-painting in this way!

The patterns are: 5C Aura (Ina Sonnenmoser), Andromeda (Lily Moon), Lealad (Lily Moon) and something that is the beginning of Amphora (Lily Moon).  

28th, 29th and 30th of April for Lily Moon

In Square One the focus is on the patterns of Lily Moon.Lily Moon is such a great tangler and one of the administrators of Square One. Her patterns are beautiful and I have used most of them in my tangeling journey. There is a dark reason for this focus - Lily is in a situation noone wants to be in right now and Chris Titus took this initiative since tangeling also is a way to bring strength and energy. In this way Chris invited tanglers all over the world to send their thoughts or/and prayers to Lily. It is a wonderful idea.



My last three days I have focused on this task. A freehand penciled heart as a string. Under the tangled hearts there are wishes penciled from me for Lily. I wish her strength, peace, comfort and balance. 

28th of April: Andromeda and Andante by Lily Moon + Balloya (Anya Lothrop) and Fescu.
29th of April: Andromeda an Amphora by Lily Moon
30th of April: Drogon and Lealad by Lily Moon.

torsdag 27 april 2017

25th, 26th and 27th of April + Dingbatz


Here are my latest calendar page:


25th of April: Balloya (Anya Lothrop), 5CAura (Ina Sonnenmoser), Cubine and Pokeroot.
26th of April: Nipa, flec (Jem Miller) and Fassett (Lynn Shelton Mead).
27th of April: Flec (Jem Miller) and Weben Idi Lowenherz.

I use to begin my day with the calendar. These last three days I did at my breakfasttable. A kind of kitchen-table-tangle!

Talking about that, there is a new Kitchen-table-tangle video on Youtube! and it is all about Dingbatz. Before I watched this video I had no idea what Dingbatz was. As I saw it I had to try it and it was great fun. I used ATC-size this time:


5C Wrapped (Ina Sonnenmoser) and something Mookish and perfs. This took not much time to do and I liked it very much.

Amanda Day - Earth Day

I am the Diva´s challenge no. 313 is for celebrating Earth Day or Amanda Day. Laura tells about her son Chewie when he was four years old, he suggested that the Earth should be named Amanda. We are supposed to make our challenge for this Day and Laura herself used package material for her tangle. I love the recycling idea in art as well as in living so I made one tile of paperboard from a box I hadn´t thrown away. Here it is:


I used black micron, gold and white Gellypen, white charcoalpen, sepia fineliner and distress markers for shading. The patterns are: Wud (Joni Feddersen), Fun Bee (Beate Winkler), Papz (mine), Iris (mine), Flux (Zt), Tipple (Zt) and Celtic Knot which I wrote about in my last post. It was fun. I will do more recycling! Just for fun!

måndag 24 april 2017

22nd, 23d and 24th of April and something about Celtic Knots

 Here is my calenderpage from today:



It is a lot of growing in it. It might be the spring coming. The notes:

22nd of April: Started of with Praa, a new pattern from Simone Menzel and then I went on with Papz, my own new one.

23d of April: Papz, Fun Bee (Beate Winkler), Meer, Edgar (Jody Genovese) Fun Bee is the focustangle in Square One and it sure gives an airy feeling to the rest! It also reminds me of the Opera Aida, by Verdi, that takes place in ancient Egypt!

24th of April: Tonight as I couldn´t sleep I went to Lynn Shelton Mead´s blog and her last post is about Celtic Knots. Who hasn´t got a fascination for Celtic Knot´s? I have tried to draw them many times, but it hasn´t been uncomplicated. I haven´t found celtic knots being useful in tangeling before. So I´ve dropped it. But Lynn shows a way to think about thise beautiful patterns that makes them work as tangles! I had to try it, so I tried it with more Fun Bees, a little Papz, Tipple and Fescu with Echoing lines (inspired by Melinda Barlow). It was great fun to do so I continued doing it the same way on an ordinary tile, using more Fun Bees and Beadlines too:



And yes it still works as a tangle! I will play with this more for sure! Thank´s to Lynn, who opened a door I thought was closed!

Iris meets Praa

I want to try my patterns in a context with other patterns. Today I played with Iris and Praa (Simone Menzel). I used Iris in the airy version.


As Praa also is an airy and light pattern it might not have been the first choice of a duotangle, but I think it worked! A dewdrop landed since I used a string that wanted this!

fredag 21 april 2017

19th, 20th and 21st of April

My calender for the last tree days:



April 19th: Barquillos (Maria Tovar) and some Dewdrops. Barquillos is a lovely one-stroke pattern and fun to do. I first made it January 11-12, as I found it in Ela Riegers Musterquelle

April 20th: My new pattern Iris with Barquillos and Zander (Zt).

April 21st: I tried Simone Menzels new pattern Praa today. I went me out of hand but I kind of like it anyway. I Barquilled Papz (mine) in the background. There is also Aaah to be found.

Spilling Coffee

I am the Diva´s challenge this week is about spilling something and use it as a string. This is not the first challenge of this kind and I guess it will not be the last. There is one tangler I know of that is the master of doing things out of spilling. Most of the time coffee. That is Michelle Wynne. Go to her blog and have a look! As I am a Virgo, I don´t like to spill at all! My first thaught was, I won´t do this challenge, but then I changed my mind, remembering I did like the outcome last time I did it! So here is my entry:



I spilled coffee. Or to be true, I brought my glass of coffee, checked that there was coffee on the outside on the bottom and then I just put it on the tile, not once but three times. When it was dry I went on tangling. Maryhill (Betsy Wilson), Beadline (Margaret Bremner), Papz (mine), Fescu, Printemps and Crescent Moon. Same magic happened as last time I did this. The outcome was so unexpected. I loved it! I loved the way tangling took me away out of planning into the relaxed mood not worrying about anything. Thank´s Laura for this challenge!

onsdag 19 april 2017

2nd New Pattern: Iris

There are so many patterns going around. I haven´t done any for a long time now. But I have been thinking and drawing in my sketchbook a lot. As I made a celebration-pattern for my father this morning I decided to go on with a pattern I have been thinking of for some time now. It is a kind of grid-pattern. It is designed with our youngest little dog in mind. She is obidient, she is very clever and loves to work! She is also very playful with a lot of happiness around her. Here is her pattern!



Hope you will enjoy it!

New pattern - Papz!

Today is my father´s 88th birthday! To honor him I came up with a new pattern: Papz. I wanted it to be easy to learn, but it should have a strong approach. Hope you will enjoy it! Here are the steps:


tisdag 18 april 2017

16th, 17th and 18th of April

This page starts with the Ressurexion Day! And yes there is the empty tomb!:)


16th of April: Trio (Hanny Nura), Trifle and Beadlines (Margaret Bremner), Cubine, Tipple, and Fescu with Echoing lines.

17th of april: Weben (Idi Lowenherz, Cubine, Pokeroot and Printemps.

18th of April: Weben (Idi L.), Barquillos (Maria Tovar), Balloya (Anya Lothrop), 5CAura (Ina Sonnenmoser), Wheelz (Joyce Block) and Pokeroot.

Weben is a new favourite of mine I think. One thing about this last page. It is so crowded. Lots of tangles and the open spaces, where are they? Maybe they´ll show up some day..... 

måndag 17 april 2017

Weben - a monotangle

Weben (Idi Lowenherz) is an easy to learn tangle. I did go for it today. 


I used a simple string and as I worked on it I just let it go. It is a piece of imperfection but imperfection as I love it. There are oopses and they are welcome. I felt very relaxed doing this. No judging. No planning. Just go for it.

Diva´s challenge no 311

I made a try doing the Divas challenge 311 on freehand. As I found out a very geometrical pattern built upon squares was the focustangle in Square One I knew this was the way to try it. Weben (Idi Lowenherz) is a new pattern to me and this is my first attempt on it ever.


Maryhill (Betsy Wilson) is the circular pattern, which I haven´t done for some time now, but the pattern in itself makes a circle and then it works as a Circle-Square-String-theory for me like this! I think I will do some more Weben, I have in mind this is a pattern with possibilities!

13th, 14th and 15th of April

This week Eastern is celebrated all over the world. Of course this affects the tangling as well. I use to sing with the church-choir a lot this special week. But this year I caught a nasty cold that has taken away my voice badly. Not one note has come out of my troat! But I have done some tangeling in my calendar!

 No planning. But a lot of influences from Melinda Barlow´s videos on YouTube! 

13th of April: 5C Aura by Ina Sonnenmoser.
14th of April: Balloya by Anya Lothrop, Beadlines by Margaret Bremner, Printemps, Mooka, Tipple, Fescu and Flux, all Zt.
15th of April: 5C Wrapped and 5C Aura, both by Ina Sonnenmoser. Then some tiny Black Perlz and Fescu with Echoing lines.

As I looked on this page I could see in what way Eastern has affected it! Thursday was quite calm (I had some fever) and the black star down in the bottom must symbolize Judas leaving the others at the last supper. It wasn´t my intention to make it black but it went that way. Friday, "Långfredag" in Swedish and Good Friday in English: It went in such a dramatic way. I started with the Balloya as I had watched Melinda Barlow´s video. That pattern I had seen before but it didn´t attract me before watching her doing it. There are crosses everywhere! Today the 15th, is the day after crucifixion and everything has changed. The diciples are afraid, chocked not knowing what to do or where to go, so they stayed close to eachother. 

My point in writing this is, weather I like it or not, or weather you like it or not, Tangeling brings out into the light what is affecting me/you at the moment. It is not always obvious but it is more there then one can recognize at the first glance.

Circle-Square-String Theory

I am the Diva´s challenge this week is about Circle-Square-String-Theory. This is the Divine Geometry! I do love Geometry. That was the part of mathematics in school I felt motivation to learn and I also in a strange way was good at it! I could sit and draw triangles, Squares and Circles for a very long time trying to figure out the way they worked together. I wanted them to be exact to be good enough. So for this challenge I did use a stencil for the circle and a ruler for the Square. Just to get back to that state of mind I used to be in doing such things at school. I worked on a 3Z since I also wanted the triangle to be present!


I won´t use those things regularly doing zentangle since I do like the freehand nonperfectional way to do it! But here it is with the patterns 5C Aura by Ina Sonnenmoser and Tipple (Zt). I found 5C Aura at Melinda Barlows blog here and I did like the pattern at once. So easy to learn and so much zen doing it! Thank´s Melinda!

String 249 and 250!

The last strings from tanglepatterns.com are 249 and 250. The end of my string project. It has been so fun doing this! I hope Linda Farmer will publish more strings after this! This pics are scanned, since I now think I can manage my scanner in a better way and the result is ok.


For string 249 I used Pico (Staub Korn), fragments B4, F7 and Q7 from zentangle Primer.


For string 250 I used Orange Arc (Sandra Strait), Meer (zt) and Vitruvius (zt).

10th -12th of April

Three more days done in the calendar! Here they come:


I hought I would go into a more organized way, maybe work on some idea about reticula and fragments or something. But the calendar wants something else, no planning here!

Monday 10th I remembered a fun pattern, Pop cloud by Carla du Prez and I had a true relaxing moment doing this followed by Frunky (Katharina Königsbauer-Kolb) and Tipple (zt).

Tuesday 11th I went to another pattern I know I wanted to explore when it first came up, but actually never did. Wall Break (Tina Kirchhübel, is the one and I still like it very much. Some Bronxcherries, Knightsbridge and Tipple followed with Abeko (Lynn Shelton Mead.

Wednesday 12th I went on with Wall Break, Frunky, Hollibaugh and Tipple.
