Tangled Tuesday No. 19

Slowly, slowly, I’m getting back into the tangling groove after coming to a near standstill due to a bout of tangle fatigue. I’m happy to say that I now have a couple of completed projects under my belt, though, so today’s Tangled Tuesday post will be a little more substantial than the last!

New Tangles

This week I picked up where I left off in Yoga for Your Brain by Sandy Steen Bartholomew and learned Caral, Portia, Ogel, Quip, and Ramykin.

If you’re following along in Yoga for Your Brain, you’ll notice that I’ve skipped a few of the designs. This isn’t because I don’t like or want to do them, but because I’ve previously learned them through one of my other books (there is often overlap and some repetition between the various Zentangle®1 books).

I also learned Alaura (I’m still struggling with it, but you have to know when to move on!), Farling, KauriKunda, (O), ING, and Cabana, all from TanglePatterns.com.


I’m carrying on with my tangled alphabet series (AKA The Project That Never Ends), currently working on the letter T. Sometimes I think I was a little crazy to take this whole thing on in the first place, and as I get ever closer to completion I find myself getting incredibly impatient and desperate to be finished already. I am more than ready to move on to something new!

Finished Projects

This week I finished R and S in my tangled alphabet series.

Coming Soon

This week’s tangling goals include:

  • Carry on with my Zenletter collection – completing at least T and U.
  • Continue adding products to Ten Thousand Tangles.
  • Photograph my previously-completed set of four Zendalas and set up listings to sell the originals in my as-yet-to-be-opened Etsy store. (Sigh. OK, this little project is now ON HOLD while I focus my energies on completing the alphabet series.)
