The miracle happened again

The first challenge of 2017 is here and I'm pleased that Laura is back.

I hope you all had a nice December whether you celebrate those days or not. Let's make 2017 a nice and especially peaceful year and try to do that by being good or at least friendly to our fellow men.

The last part of December was busy, but surrounded by people I love made that worth while. My daughter and her husband were staying here and on Boxing Day we all went to my son's house where he cooked us a fantastic Persian meal. Never had that before, so I had no idea what to expect, but is was such a pleasant surprise.
On the 27th my daughter and her husband had organized a diner, that was still for their wedding on November 11th, in a very nice restaurant. This was also an evening to never forget.

On New Years eve Kees and I were together and we enjoyed that too. I had to work on the 1st January, so it was good to do it this way.

Now our 'normal' life is back and that's good too.

This week is of course a UMT and it is Orbs-la-Dee by Anneke van Dam. I just started tangling and only because I always finish a tile and put my first attempt online, I did not put the tile in the bin after drawing the first row. So I went on and at a point it was not so bad anymore. And then the miracle of Zentangle happened again ... I suddenly liked what I saw and now, after a night of sleep, it is still a tile I do like! Never planned a monotangle, but that's what it became.


Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you leave me a comment. Work created by fellow tanglers can be seen at 'I am the diva'.

Blessed Be!!!
Annemarie

  1. Leuk is dat hè, als een tile waarvan je eerst denkt: dit wordt helemaal niets, tóch leuk uitpakt. Gelukkig heb je hem niet halverwege weggelegd, want het resultaat is heel mooi!

  11. Een beetje een ingetogen maar wel erg mooie tile is het geworden op een subtiele achtergrond.
    Toch weer fijn om in alle rust mee te kunnen doen aan de challenges na een drukke maar ook leuke periode in de familiesfeer. Ik wens je een geweldig 2017 met veel tangleplezier en vooral een goeie gezondheid.

  13. Glad that you had a nice holiday with family, Annemarie. Nothing better! It's funny how tiles always look a lot better if we walk away for a bit. When I go to Google to see what people have done with a certain tangle, I finally see one that makes me go "ohh, I like that one" only to find out it's mine and I have forgotten about it LOL! Your use of Orbs-la-Dee is really stunning!

  14. A beautiful monotangle of orbs-la-dee. As I tangle I often do not like how my tiles are progressing. It is important to continue tangling and finish the whole Zentangle process. I think of my tangling as a jigsaw puzzle; fragmented pieces until the whole picture is completed.
