Hi Everyone and another frustrating morning here in NZ waiting for Our Guys to lift the America's Cup!!!  For those of you not in the know we only need ONE more race but that race is very elusive.  USA won TWO!!!!!!! races today to give them FOUR!!!!!on the trot.  How come they never have the bad luck of the race being called when they are WAYout in front????? Aaaaargh  my nerves are frazzled!!  So maybe I should sit down and do some Zentangle which is proven to be calming and very theraputic.  I discovered it a couple of years or so ago and I love it.  Trouble is I don't seem to get much time to do it what with class samples, instructions etc.  However when we went away for 8 weeks this winter I took my Zentangle stuff with me and made good progress.  I had bought a set of alphabet templates and used these to draw my letters which I then filled with different tangles.  It was a great way for me to practise lots of different tangles.  I had not thought of posting them on my blog and unfortunately, as I used friend's and family's initials, I have given them away!!  However I have just done his for our Darling Granddaughter and that was when the thought of blogging it came to me.  I only know a few of the tangles by name as yet but I DEFINITELY have my favourites.  I need to be firm with myself and make sure I try new ones and even ones I am not so fond of so that I increase my skill.  If you would like to know more then just Google Zentangle.  Rick and Maria who started it all have a fabulous website and there are many, many enthusiasts who generously share their ideas and talents.  You can go the States and take part in a residential course to become a CZT (Certified Zentangle Teacher) .  NZ doesn't have any CZTs as yet.  Maybe I could become the first??  Now there's a good thought to finish on.  Have a good day.
