After a busy weekend: Aquafleur!

We are home again after a quite busy weekend at the Dutch coast. The daughter of my husband and her family, who live in UK, were there on their holiday and we joined them for a long weekend. This was in Duinrell, an amusement and holiday park where the grandchildren really amused themselves! And so did we, running around swings, merry-go-rounds a.s.o.
Now we're home to rest a bit :-)
This is what I did there on Sunday morning:



And then there is challenge 322 and Aquafleur is the tangle to play with this week. I hardly ever use that one, so a good time to start doing this. After drawing Aquafleur I decided to fill the rest of the tile with Baton, also a tangle that I never use.
I think I like the result, even when it turned out to be very 'stripy'!

Not my 'piece of cake'

I almost did it: skip this week's challenge!
The only reason I didn't is that I never skipped one before and so I decided to join this anyway. Well, I hoped it would be sort of pleasant to overcome my aversion, but to be honest, it didn't.

Tangling (or doing whatever) with my left, non dominant, hand is a huge struggle and I promised myself that I never ever have to do this again.
Sorry Laura, It's a great idea, but absolutely not my 'piece of cake'.


I wonder what all of you, other tanglers, did and will try to comment, but we are (again) going away for a long weekend. This time near the Dutch coast. Today I have to work, so not much time left.

Dansk, an UMT

After my time in Switzerland and the long weekend in the south of our country, life is a bit more normal now. Well, normal for only 11 days, because then we will go for a long weekend near the Dutch coast.
All so nice to do, but also quite weary.

The moment I saw the challenge of this week, I liked it. It's UMT and the tangle is Dansk by Margaret Bremner. I did use this tangle a lot some years ago, but had almost forgotten it now. Most of the time I use Sand Swirl, by Karry Heun, in stead.

I chose a colored tile (it is more pink and at the bottom yellow), started with Hollibaugh and filled most of the open spaces with Dansk.
It was a real zen time to do this tile.

Colorrun and beads

I came home from Switzerland Tuesday night, here is a photo of a beautiful waterfall in Giessen,
and have been so very busy since, that I could hardly find time for this challenge. There are a lot of reasons for that, but the main is that we are leaving for a long weekend tomorrow, so it was un packing two days ago and packing again today.

Tonight I just took some time to make my tile and I kept it quite simple. Just a tile with a lot of color and some beads.

Hope to have more time next week, also for commenting all your entries!

Blessed be!
