Good rainy morning!

      Such a messy day!  In fact it is going to be a very messy week.  Perhaps good for some, not so good for my carpenter friend who was wanting to get my porch roof done.  Nor for my poor lab baby who cannot stand going out into the rain.  It is nice sleeping and creating weather though.
      Our inchie word / country was Bhutan - Land of the Thundering Dragon.  I went over and watched a really nice travel video on this enchanting place.  Mostly Buddhist, there are lots of beautiful monasteries.  I tried drawing a representation of the Tiger's Nest over the flag.  The flag itself is also beautiful.  I just could not do that dragon justice so it is a nice white "squiggle".  Think dragon.  Use your imagination, please.

      Joey's challenge is in the 9th week.  It is a finish the tile series.  She gives us a tangle and draws the center of the piece and we finish it.  The tangle we used this week was dicso (correctly spelled).  I kept it a very simple tile this week.  I kept debating on filling in the white space, but just could not.  I think it would have crowded out the beauty of the tangle. 

      Diva's challenge is a monotangle this week using the tangle puf.  I like this tangle by Carole Ohl.  It looks so soft and squishy!  Like a pile of yarn!

      I have done some coloring this week also but I am saving those for a blog post I am writing to review some Creative Haven things.  Hopefully that will be up this week or first of next.  If you do get a notification about it, please check it out and leave me a comment or two.  I want CH to like the review and possibly use me again for reviewing things.  Thanks in advance!
      Okay . . . help.  Does anyone know how  I can get the bar across the top of my blog - where it says HOME, to include other categories?  I can get the headings - no problem.  I just can't seem to make the links from there work.  I want to put up two more categories.  On the home page where you are now, I don't want these other posts to show.  Only if you click the link.  Yes I know this confusing and I am thoroughly perplexed.  If you do know how and can tell me VERY simply, please let me know.  I really don't think it should be as hard as it seems to me!
      Thanks for dropping by and leaving me some sunshine (really need lots of sunshine today!).  Have a wonderful week!  Hugs!


  1. That's a very cool inchie! I've only got map/ flag again thanks to 🐶 keeping me on my toes:-(


  2. I also did Bhutan's flag, but managed to get a reasonable facsimile of a dragon in the middle...colored him green just for the heck of it.

    Love your tangle!


  3. I love your challenge, it's just the right amount of tangling! As far as your header problem, my headers sort according to the "labels" that I assign each post. If you look at the bottom of a post it will list the categories it has been filled under. So if you click on the header Eco Art you will only see the posts that I have assigned that label. Does that make any sense at all?

  4. You managed to fit a lot about Bhutan into that inchie, the architecture, culture, history et is indeed a lovely flag and dragons are a wonderfully Asian symbol, Dx

  5. Lovely Joey tile, less is more!

  6. I agree with Ilse, very nice tile for Joey!

  7. I love the inchie, you did alot in such a little space! I really love the Tangle. I hope you get the help you need for the blog!

  8. Great tiles! I really love the Joey piece 😍

  9. Great inchie and tangles Cathy, love looking at your tangles.

  10. I can see the dragon :-) great inchie! Beautiful zentangles!


Thank you for leaving me some sunshine! Your comments make my day!
