Zendala Dare #54

It is great to be getting back to nearly normal!!
I have discovered one problem though, if you'd call it a problem.
When I was ill and couldn't do anything, my other creative thingies stuck their heads out.
Now I find myself with  not just tangles to do, but also making a colouring -in book of my paintings, a patchwork tote bag as a way to get back into quilting so I can make a quilt for each of my grandchildren, which is SEVEN by the way, and I have painting commissions to do.
I thought I'd have plenty of time when I retired, but you do other things like go out for coffee or lunch, have a 2-4 day holiday, need to see doctors, dentists, pathologists, go with hubby on his visits for treatments etc., etc.
Phew! Makes me feel worn out just writing it out! I know those who are retired will identify with all that.

Anywaaaaaaaaaaaay, here is this weeks zendala which I have kept in black and white just to be trad for a bit.


  1. Wow, your zendala is GREAT. I love what you did between the ribbons, it's quite elegant.
    And, yes I know what you mean. I sometimes wonder how I could ever find the time to work.
    But .... I still miss it and especially beeing part f a group.

  2. Looks great. Like the combination of tangles. It is always interesting to see how people used tangles that never were things that I considered and the unique results that they achieve.

    1. Thanks Donald. Its encouraging to receive your comments.

  3. Wow - Your Zendala is fabulous! The balance is nice and all of your patterns are so complimentary. Very pretty!
