Floods in Victoria - Australia

Kerang sub station
Well, there have been no tangles from me this week, our town and surrounding farms are in the middle of a crisis, we are having floods and this is a picure of a levee bank surrounding our power station in the town. SES and volunteers (inclucing hubby) have been working around the clock to save houses and farms and animals, we have lost many and saved some too, its devistating for all concerned and its peaking as I write this... whish us luck.. xxx
PS : Our farm is safe thankfully

More inspired by waves and sand and trees :)

Lazy Days

More lakeside sitting and tangling :)


Sitting by the water all day with friends Tangling made me realise that when you do take is slowly and dont have time constraints, it does turn out better... hmm.. what was that thing about living in the moment :)

Weekly Challenge # 3

Eyes Wide Shut was the challenge for the string this week from Laura @ I am Diva,
The idea was to create the string with your eyes closed and then fill it in ( eyes open ) it was wierd for me and I felt really non attatched to filling it in, I felt as if i was finishing off something for someone else and i couldnt wait to get to the end of it... I think it showed too as i like soft tangles usually and this seems hard to me . anyway ......
We are away on holidays at the lake and this kind of reminded me or Snoopy Dog riding a wave for some reason :) I think all my sore muscles have me thinking about the waves and water and may have sent me a little loopy !!

Back to Basics :)

That challenge of Laura's @ I am Diva on Simplicity really got me thinking about the new year, I think getting back to basics is a good idea both in life and drawing :) let me see if I can give it a whirl .. "simplicity"... my new word going forward.. (even as I am writing it, I am doubtful !!)
Ha ha I knew i couldnt leave it alone and after I published it, i went and added a little this and that !!!.... makes a big difference all that "this and that" :)

lots-a-froth and bubble !!

Happy New Year :))
