HQ .... kitchentable talks

This week Laura sends us the video from HQ (I like that term) with Rick creating a duotangle with Diva Dance and Paradox.
Great to watch, but not as easy as it seemed.

I took a colored 3Z tile and started the way Rick did. As I just said, not so very easy but .... not as difficult as I expected it to be.
I left some open space, but am not sure that was the best thing to do. What do you think?

A purple week again and ... 300!!!!

300!!!! That's the number of challenges Laura has prepared for us over the years.
300 weeks!
THANK you Laura and congratulations!!!

Also Moebius Syndrome (want to know more about that disorder? Go to 'I amthe diva') Awareness Day and as every year, we are asked to make a tile with that theme for Artoo.

I started coloring some purple tiles and after they dried, I chose the most beautiful one. In the right upper corner I started with the symbol and worked from there. After finishing I looked at the tile and saw that it became a sort of landscape with a beautiful sun. Quite appropriate for Artoo I think, because that's what he is in the lives of his family.
So Artoo, this is for you!

Drawings, new to me

Wow, I thought is was cold here in The Netherlands (about - 5C), but then I read what Laura wrote about the temperature in Saskatoon: - 35C. Brrrrr.
To be honest, I don't mind the cold, but HATE when it's slippery because I am not courageous (or stupid) enough to use my bicycle and I don't have a drivers license (yes, I'm one of a dying breed).

On to this week's challenge that brings us to a new official tangle: Drawings. I had seen it, but not tried it before, so yesterday evening I started doing that. I found it not very easy, but after some practicing I started my tile for the challenge.
I took a tile I colored some time ago (I have quite a stack of them now) and after finishing and turning it in all directions, I decided that it had to be in the way I show you here:

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.
