Link to tangle pattern "Featherfall"

Check out this pattern by Carole Ohl, "Featherfall".

My tangle pattern 'Chilgoza'

I've had this pattern ready for almost a week, but needed to do an example artwork, and also, I have an idea for building on this to create a tangle that looks surprisingly different (to me anyway).  But I haven't been able to get to either one, so I'm going to post this anyway.  It makes a wonderful border or string.

Link to tangle pattern "Facets"

Rick and Maria have post the latest issue of the zentangle newsletter, which contains a new tangle, "Facets", created by Nancy Pinke.

I apologize for being so scarce lately.  It's the usual lament--real life keeps happening.  And it seems like it's all happening at once.  I'd go on, except I know you've all been there, done that, lol! So, I'll just  *Moan, moan, moan*.

I miss you all, and hope to get in a little more time online this next month.  'Hope' being the operative word.

Link to tangle Pattern Chambray

Someone recently sent Sandy Bartholomew a question about the way I do a fabric-like tangle in a couple of the illustrations I did in her 'Totally Tangled' book.  She sent the question to me, and I created a tangle, Chambray, to show how it was done. 

I think sometimes people confuse our names (Sandra Strait/Sandra Bartholomew), so I asked her to post the tangle on her site--she deserves every inch of credit for that book.  It is so amazing that she allowed other artists to share their art when she put in all the hours and frustration.  I've never heard of such a thing before.  

I want to make sure everyone knows where the praise should go.  I contributed.  She dreamed, toiled, and published.  Sandra Bartholomew is my hero!
