My grandchildren are gone and the house seems empty. Andrew is 10 months and Orin is 5. They were so much fun to have around. Although, I have to admit, I am exhausted!

The first thing I did, after de-childproofing the house so I could plug in the lamp, was to sit down and tangle. I completed two tiles using It's a String Thing #51 and the Diva challenge #178 as my inspiration. I drew them on the same page of my sketch book. What a relaxing exercise --- just what "the doctor ordered"!

It;s a String Thing #51 and Diva Challenge #178 (first tile). The Diva Challenge was a duotangle using tangles that begin with my intials "JD". I used Drangonair- one of my favorites by Norma Burnell, CZT and Jemz by Margaret Bremner in this tile.

It's a String Thing #51 and Diva Challenge #178 (second tile). I used Dragonair and Jalousie by Stephanie Kukla in this tile.
