I'm tangling from A to Z - H is for...
...Henna Drum

(Pssst... new here? Welcome to Alphabet Salad! For some background on how and why I got involved in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, check out this post... and, if you'd like to catch up on my progress to date, all of my challenge posts are tagged with Tangling from A to Z. Glad you stopped by, and hope you'll return!)


Tangle Practice

I am most definitely NOT a morning person... yet I am really coming to appreciate this pre-work tangle session each day. The house is quiet (well, apart from the roadwork noises in the background!), the cats are napping after their breakfast, and I have time to relax and create with a cup of hot coffee by my side. For some reason, today's tangles were especially satisfying, and actually very quick and easy to learn. What a great start to my day!

Border & String

Just to carry on with the whole A to Z theme, I thought I'd make each day's "string" resemble the appropriate letter for the day. I can't always promise that the finished tiles will look anything like the letters - it all depends on which tangles I'm using and how the drawing evolves. We'll just have to see what happens!
