Paradox and 70


Since I was 40 I never really celebrated my birthday, just my children and my best friend came to visit.
Last Sunday it was my 70th birthday and I did celebrate, in fact because my daughter convinced me to do so, telling me that it really is a reason to celebrate because lots of people don't make it to that age and I think she is right. That I still don't like this ageing thing, is a different matter. You, tanglers of about this age, how do you feel about getter old(er)?

So, I invited some friends and ordered catering for an Indonesian buffet, which was fantastic:
I'm glad I did this, because it was a good and warm evening.

Up to the challenge.
I love Paradox, so I loved this week's challenge to use it in a monotangle.
Loved every minute of working on my tile last night. Even love the result!

My name


This was a very busy week, so I only worked on the Challenge of this week yesterday night.
I started late (to be honest, I had plenty on time earlier, but I was just hanging in my chair in front of the TV), about 22:30.

So, I took a 3Z tile and started with the letters of my name. Some tangles around it and ... just a bit after 23:00 I finished it.
Not much more to say about it, so here it is:

Verve, almost forgotten!


Oh, I really like challenge 355!
Verve is a tangle I used a lot, but the last couple of months I seemed to have forgotten it. So, I am very pleased to see it as the tangle for this week.

I started with a tile I colored with Ecoline, a while ago. Then made my 'string' with squares and filled them with Verve. The question was if I would draw other tangles in it, but decided not to.
What would you have done, more tangles or not?

A Christmas tile in spring


So, almost back to 'normal' health-wise :-)
I was soooooooooo happy to go outside again, especially in this (almost) spring like weather. And being back to work; just great.

The first Monday of the month, so it is an UMT: Siri, by Simone Menzel. I had to concentrate quite a bit, but that made it sort of 'zen' experience. I used a green tile and like the black and white pens on it.
To be honest the end result feels a bit Christmas-y, but nevertheless I like it.

The last heart challenge :-)


I'm late, but there is a reason for it.

Last Monday night I became ill again, luckily not the flu again, but still very unpleasant: a nasty cold! Now, on Saturday morning I'm still coughing a lot, but I'm already a lot better! Because it was extremely cold for The Netherlands, I have not left the house since Monday and I will be glad to go out again.
It was a weird week, Kees was also ill, he had a light pneumonia, so both of us doing almost nothing except for coughing :-(

So I only started my zendala for the challenge on Thursday evening and finished it yesterday.
We had to make a heart zendala and I decided to start with a little heart as the center of my zendala.
The resultant is simple but quite nice a think.
To be honest, I'm glad this was the last heart, because I'm not really into hearts.
However it was a lot of work for Laura again, so: Thanks Laura anyway!!!

Some time ago my friend Gerla and I tangled some 3Z tiles and framed them. I think this is very pretty to look at. The photo is not very good; the face you see mirrored in the glass is from the TV :-) I couldn’t make another photo because the things is not here anymore. But it will give you an idea of what we did.
