The Diva's Weekly Challenge #146: DuoTangle Pea-nuckle/Well

My first thought was 'oh tricky combination' so just began with a simple wonky square string and decided not to think to hard about how these two tangles would fit together. Fun!!

It's a keeper

Thank you for all your encouragement and support for my mak-rah mee! It seems to be a keeper!!
Thanks Linda for posting it on

For the last few weeks I have been 'Grandmas Help' at Heidi and Samuel's school, with groups of enthusiastic 7 -11 year olds learning to tangle. The wonderful aspect that I found has been the encouragement they have given each other. If a student said "I can't do that" someone else always said "Yes you can, that looks good". I love that!

It's a Bugs Life

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #144: A Bug's Life
When I first found Zentangle I often coloured poke root with a touch of red, with this in mind I decided to hide my bugs amongst ripe berries.

New tangle or tangleation?

What do you this a new tangle or a tangleation of keeko? It starts with keeko but reminds me of the knots in macramé. Years ago I loved making macramé pot plant hangers and wall hangings so I thought a good name might be mak-rah-mee (the pronunciation from the dictionary).

You can just do one knot or add as many as you like in lines or random over your tile. Loop, tie, weave and tangle. A fun way to get yourself in a knot!

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #143: "UMT v.XXII - Cruze"

Cruising with cruze! This is such a super tangle so I was quite happy when it came up for The Diva's challenge, after playing with it last week I wanted to try it again.

Have you tried Ona, it is a fun tangle from José Meeusen of The Netherlands.

Just Tangling

Time to take a deep breath, slow down and just tangle. Better than a pill!
