Refreshers 198, 200; IAST 292, 293, 294; Square One; 100DayProject, All Stars and Ellipse and more...


We finally reached Refresher #200 with its tangles Waybop, Cirli, Companion, Chaist, and Cross-ur-Heart. I have the whole collection and at this milestone I have to decide whether I want to continue drawing each newly published prompts. The series might also end; Refresher 200 was 3 weeks overdue. An ominous sign? Time will tell. (I wrote this many weeks ago. Meanwhile 201 has been published and I decided to continue drawing each and every Refresher.)

Another IAST challenge, #292 where I took it very 'liberal' (not in the political sense I may add) with the given tangles Fife, Fuenf and Furr Balls - of which I don't even have one full ball.

Tangle Patterns: Fife, Fuenf, Furr Balls



And then there is my very dirty IAST tile for challenge #293 with tangles Partay, Pixioze, Croon. Again and again I put it in front of me, trying hard to make it look better, cleaner, but not even the bright yellow dots and lines could save it. I guess we all have one of those misfits in our repertoire.

I think I got it this time. IAST #294 with new tangle Happy does actually look like "Happy". The tile just got a bit too pinkish, but I can't blame "Happy" for that.

Tangle Pattern: Happy



Inspired by...Zenith. Zenith was a 100DayProject prompt for May 19. Somehow I got inspired to do a bit more with it and on normal 9x9 cm tile.

Tangle Patterns: Zenith, Diva Dance



Another Inspired by... tile - Z-Trik, a given prompt for June 14. When I had finished that tile, I felt like going on drawing lines. Hence this simple mini monotangle tile was born.

Tangle Pattern: Z-Trik



My 100DayProject titled...

*** 1Day1Tangle1Tile 2019 ***


...and on goes my monotangle theme under the 100DayProject for 2019. However, there is good and bad news. The bad news: We are still 40 days off the finish line. The good news: We are past the half way point.

Below 7 more tiles containing 4 monotangle tiles. Again, I try to find a variation for the daily tangles. While I mostly fail sometimes I succeed to 'hide' the original, e.g.: May 30's Mountain in group 15.

So here we go...


Group 11 with May 12: Pod Flower, May 13: Block'd, May 14: Blooming Butter, May 15: Floatfest. May 12 - Pod Flower, a new grid tangle by Helen Williams, was not one of the suggested prompts, but as from time to time on weekends there was none posted so I squeezed this beautiful tangle in. May 13 - I think I can safely say that this is a no-tangle tile. I used Block'd as a string and filled it with dice dots and some lines. May 14 - Blooming Butter with Fescu petals.

Tangle Patterns: Pod Flower, Block'd, Blooming Butter, Floatfest



Group 12 with May 16: X, May 17: Xplode, May 18: Onamato, May 19: Zenith.

Tangle Patterns: X, Xplode, Onamato, Zenith



Group 13 with May 20: Stwist, May 21: Shirley, May 22: Mazorito, May 23: F2F (Fringe to Fringe). May 21 - my 2 Shirley strips got a bit too close to each other and promptly got entangled. May 22 - Mazorito: angry birds of pray or masks of the damned - could be both. May 23 - F2F is probably the easiest tangle by Tomas Padros. I tried it with all kinds of shapes, but with leaves (or with his Chlorophilia tangle) it turned out to be my favorite. As an exception to my 100DayProject 2019 theme 1Day1Tile1Tangle, here I morphed F2F into Chlorophilia.

Tangle Patterns: Stwist, Shirley, Mazorito, F2F (Fringe to Fringe morphing into Chlorophilia)



Group 14 with May 24: Sling Slang, May 25: Cubine, May 26: Squid, May 27: Odir. May 25 - Cubine in an ogee grid where the ogee seeds are sliced in half resulted in 'Tribine'.


100DayProject with May 24: Sling Slang, May 25: Cubine, May 26: Squid, May 27: Odir
Tangle Patterns: Sling Slang, Cubine, Squid, Odir



Group 15 with May 28: Tut, May 29: YouDoo, May 30: Mountain, May 31: Jester. May 28 - Tut, my personal favorite of the 4, but May 30 - Mountain, is my best variation.


100DayProject with May 28: Tut, May 29: YouDoo, May 30: Mountain, May 31: Jester
Tangle Patterns: Tut, YouDoo, Mountain, Jester



Group 16 with June 1: Enyshou, June 2: Marasu, June 3: Arkand, and June 4: Ratoon.

All Stars? Ellipse?

Last but not least in my tangle exploration is a "study" of All Stars and Ellipse. All Stars was a prompt in Square One during the week May 24-30. I think Ellipse was introduced shortly after or during that week. Honestly, I think one is just a variation of the other. With some of my tiles I didn't follow the stepout, but drew S-curves which was a lot faster for me.

This All Stars/Ellipse testing tile was my first of many. I drew this tile with mainly All Stars in mind and in a wonky grid and filled it with Ruutz. The fine lines is the wonky grid and if you look closely all eyes are on a cross section.

This was my first "Inspired by..." Ellipse-on-my-mind tile - also in a wonky grid. But honestly, if you see All Stars in it that'll be OK with me, too.

Tangle Pattern: Ellipse



All Stars or Ellipse? I have no idea. I just drew S-curves horizontally and vertically on this and the next tile.

Then I tried it with leaves...No, don't try that!

...and finally an All Stars and Ellipse tile hand in hand. Here I also proof that I know what Ellipse should really look like.

Finally, the very last tile I drew with both, All Stars and Ellipse on my mind.

Animal Happy Days

Remember this photo from my previous blog post? Well, I have good news regarding this cat family. Getting hold of the mum was easy and meanwhile she has given birth to 6 (SIX!!!) new kittens. My neighbor and I are glad we acted when we did and found a foster before the kittens were born. As it turns out, she has not enough milk to feed all 6. Now they have a fighting chance. In fact, 4 already have a home. In time the mum will be spayed and hopefully ends up in a loving home, too.

As for her 2 kittens (boy named Seng Cann, girl named Pian Peirn and no, I have no idea what the names mean). It took a while until we found them, caught them, and placed them in a room where we could 'tame' them. We soon had an interested owner and she helped with the feeding and playing. Now they have their vaccinations, are spayed and neutered and live happily with the new owner.

Seng Cann and Pian Peirn



The nursery. 5 kittens in the basket and one outside.






New cat project. 

Stray Tabby

He is a male Tabby and the first attempt to bring him to the vet failed when he broke one of the basket cover hinges and escaped. He, too, is not tamed, but since I am feeding him daily, I can handle him - carefully - although he hisses at me every so often (especially when I am not quick enough with the food). I consider this a case of mind over matter and I am the one with the mind.

Watch out, Tabby!!!

If you still don't have enough of cats, here a funny story about a water-loving, pain in the bathroom, cat. One of the drawings made me LOL.


From my garden....

Black Bat Flower


Now it is back to my 100DayProject - 1Day1Tile1Tangle. There is a lot of catching up to do and honestly, I am glad we are heading towards the end of the 100 days. My windows need cleaning, the footpath water pressured...the list is long.

Thanks for visiting my blog and enjoy a wonderful week.

IAST 288. 289, 290, 291; Square One; 100DayProject April 14 - May 11


Square One week 19-25 with Javik. I am not surprised Javik got to be featured at the same time by two (!) different challenges, IAST and Square One. It is a most stunning tangle. Here on a watercolored distressed tile.

IAST challenge #291 with Zig Zag Track which can, but does not have to, end up in 4Mom. I didn't send it in because...well, be honest, where is Zig Zag Track? I can't well call it "a very free freestyle Zig Zag Track", can I.

IAST challenge #290, an angular cross string with Sikito and Edie. Angular? Maybe more like freaky. Some of my Edie reminds me of the ghost mask in the Scream movies. BOOOOOooooooo!

Tangle Patterns: Sikito, Edie



IAST challenge #289 with Rain and one or two as per own choice. I took Mock I.Am and on one of the tiles a added a little bit of Ruutz.

This is the tile I drew first for Adele;s 289, but it just turned out a bit too dark for the theme and too dirty.

Tangle Patterns: Rain, Mock I.Am




In my last post I published a IAST #288 tile which I thought was a bit on the weird side and I committed myself to (re)draw a more common tile. So this is it and I like it a lot better.

Inspired by...April 29 of the 100DayProject: Chartz. I actually really thought I can sell the petals of a flower as a zig-zag pattern. However, I soon realized I went a bit too far in my Chartz re-creation and assigned this tile to my theme Inspired by....

My 100DayProject titled...

*** 1Day1Tangle1Tile 2019 ***


Yes, I am still going strong a month into the game. Actually, I really enjoy every single tile of it. Probably because they are all monotiles as per my slogan: 1Day1Tile1Tangle. True, at times I get stuck with a certain prompt, but if I think about it long enough - I mean loooooooooong enough - eventually a design idea pops up. If not, I just wait yet a little bit loooooooooooonger....

I decided to group my tiles into 4, sequenced in dates, so at the end of 100 days I will have... I will have...ehhh, I will !hopefully! have twenty-five groups - if all goes well and I don't get stuck. In my last post I published the first 12 days in 3 groups, so here are...

...group 4 with April 14: Ruutz as leaves; April 15: Featherfall; April 16: Apacore; and April 17: Lee-Bee, only my second tile/Lee-Bee on newspaper.

Tangle Patterns: Ruutz, Featherfall, Apacore, Lee-Bee



Group 5 with April 18 Reticulated; April 19: Typzi; April 20: Nymbis; and April 21: Beeline. As for Beeline...there is one spoiler that jumps my beautiful lineup. It's hard to control all fish in a school.  Beeline are fish, aren't they?

Tangle Patterns: Reticulated, Typzi, Nymbis, Beeline



Group 6 with April 22: Knot Rickz; April 23: Spoken; April 24: Nik; and April 25: Lichen. Lichen is one of the prompts I had to think a bit looooooonger about. Then recently I used my feather duster and suddenly it clicked.


100DayProject Group 6 with April 22: Knot Rickz; April 23: Spoken; April 24: Nik; and April 25: Lichen
Tangle Patterns: Knot Rickz, Spoken, Nik, Lichen



Group 7 with April 26: Batumber; April 27: Emoball; April 28: Stonestory; April 29: Chartz. I guess the IAST 290 self-inflicted ghost theme has infected Emoball. Stonestory: this tangle is underrated and I love it, BUT! don't draw it on a red tile! Chartz: I certainly made a better job with Chartz zig-zag line here than in the "inspired by..." tile above.

Group 8 with April 30: Barney,  May 1: Tamisolo, May 2: Pea-Nuckle, May 3: Hollyhock. Is there anyone out there who loves Pea Nuckle? My Pea-Nuckle barometer is rising on the likability scale and is now heading straight towards the 'Love It' level.

Update on the cats I fostered. 

All five are doing wonderfully well. The 2 babies that left for Bangkok have stepped out of their coats to do some serious laundry assistance.

Bangkok babies assisting with laundry

Gem, here with her the new mum, is definitely a favorite. Can you spot that real white gold pendant she is so proudly showing off?

Yin and Yang, the look-a-like, recently graduated from our famous local cat military school with another sibling. They learn how to eat in line and very close to each other without intimidating and stealing from the other. Honestly, while these two were with Bon and me, the room couldn't have enough corners during feeding time. We had to guard them the whole time and jump in if one only as much as lifted its head to eye the other.

So peaceful in their feeding line up!!!


New Cat Project

Expecting mum with her 2 chocolate brown babes

This mum is pregnant again and we try to convince her that she better stay with us, but although tame, she prefers to roam the www, but visits every 2 or 3 days. The 2 chocolate colored babes have been a no show for a few weeks already. Maybe they have a home? If not and you happen to see them tell them that we have a home vacancy for one of them already.



Animal Sad Day

I hate it when I see animals killing animals, but the word that accurately describes my feeling for men killing, abusing, or torturing animals has yet to be defined.





But that is not how I want to end this post. Here it comes...purest joy to live is best demonstrated in this video...

Animal VERY Happy Day

Ahh...this is much better. Much MUCH better!!!





I much appreciate your visit and wish you
an absolute fantastic weekend.
