Calendar Week 2 Finished!

Here's a peek at the end of my tangle-a-day calendar week. I'm loving my morning tea time (ok, somedays it's afternoon tea time) with one little 2x2 space to tangle. 





  Today, after a whole year of looking at the lace canopy that hangs over my bed, it finally came to me how to do the pattern I see everyday. I've tried to do it many times and it never seemed to capture the feeling of the lace. This morning it occurred to me what was missing: the rounding!! Having reminded myself about the rounding technique earlier in the week, I guess it must have been hanging in my brain somewhere, waiting for the right time. Once a name for this tangle (lower half of day 15), comes to me, I will post the steps. Anyone have any ideas on a name?

  1. Carole, your work is so beautiful, do you string the whole month before you tangle each day. I need one of your calendars remined me where you have them for sale. CZT#4 Melinda

  2. Thanks Melinda! For January, I did create a string that went through the whole month. I really like having the string there as a guide each day. If you click on the first link in the post, or go to the pink box on the top right of the blog, you will get to the Etsy site where they are available.

  4. Your calendar is beautiful! I just ordered one, so I'll be joining you in February. It looks like so much fun to do a little 2x2 space every day and watch it develop.

  8. Lovely, Carole. Your calendar is going to have to be preserved as a memento of your year - it's far too lovely to pitch in a year!

  9. I think it would be fun at the end of the year, to gather a few of these calendars from different people and do an exhibit of some kind. That would be fun to see what each person did with the year.

  10. Here's an idea for a name for that tangle: Webster.

  11. Watching the year unfold in zentangles is going to be a fun process!

    A name suggestion for this pretty tangle - "Canopy" :-) Yeah, I'm simple-minded like that, lol!

    I'm also *very* taken by the braid-type design on day 14; didn't you describe it as starting out as a chain but the links never matched up? I like this pattern a lot, would love to see the steps you're using to create it (giant hint, lol!)

    Beautiful work, always inspiring -- thanks for sharing it!
