Honestly, I think my learning curve has flatlined. I mean, I am excruciatingly well aware of how limited my crafting/artistic skills are. Ideas? Yes, tons of ’em. Ability? Ah, no , not so you’d notice. So why did I not only agree to make the wedding invitations for my son’s up and coming nuptials, but then say “Just show me a picture of what you like and I’ll see what I can do.”? AND SHE DID! Dammit. Anyway, the style they like is not too challenging so I’ll be getting started as soon as we get back from what my Dad used to call furrin’ parts.
I’ve joined the Zentangle Artist Trading Card Swap on Facebook for the February swap. It requires us to use one of two particular strings – 150 and 39, plus anything heart like in the patterns. I’ve done one or two and am loving this – lots of Helen Williams patterns seem to be making their presence felt, I notice.
At half past five yesterday morning the earth moved for the loved one and me. No, really. There was an earthquake in Morocco and we felt the tremors here in southern Spain. Not nice. Certainly don’t want to be any nearer than that.
And it was Diva Day too. Using a tangle as a string was the Challenge; a tangle inside a tangle. I’ve been practising a lot of Helen Williams’ tangles recently, so I used Zag V as my string and put some Inapod inside it, coloured with Gelly Roll Stardust pens. Good fun.
And that’s it for now.
The next blog will no doubt have tales of our trips to Torrox and Nerja but my patience with the vagaries of foreign wifi is running out so I will wish you a fond farewell for now.
