Musings and Amusings

I finally found her again!

All you bloggers & readers who expressed interest in patterns, doodles and tangles – you might want to visit Alphabet Salad.

I found Alphabet Salad in late Marchย on the A to Z Challenge list; followed her for a couple weeks; lost her in the frenzy of my follows; then finally found her today. Click on “Artsy Craftsy” in her Categories link; scroll through those posts; and you will find 3 patterns for each day of A to Z, plus her ongoing Tangled Tuesdays.

Have fun exploring ๐Ÿ™‚


Comments on: "Lions, Tigers and Tangles – Oh My!" (37)

  1. Fantastic! Thanks for posting, Sammy. Can’t wait to have a good mooch around her blog. x

  2. Oh cool, I’ll have to have a look around, it’s an interesting concept. And always great to meet new bloggers! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Off to check it out!

  4. This could be dangerous…

  5. It’s nice to find a blogger you thought you’d lost. Several months back, WordPress unfollowed a bunch of blogs for me. It took weeks to reclaim them all, and I’m still worried I’ve missed some.

  6. Thanks so much for sharing my blog – so glad you found it again! Looking forward to chatting with you more and also “meeting” some of your readers. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I am on my way , will be back with more.

    • ๐Ÿ™‚ you’re going to need another pair of hands for this new passion ๐Ÿ™‚

      • You are right on that, Sammy! One thing is, I have never and will never say I am bored, or I don’t have anything to do. My body may not move very fast, but my mind is always at full speed ahead. I finished my first on my own zentangle and am starting second one. Will post soon.

  8. Thanks for posting this, Sammy! I am definitely intrigued by the idea that I could do this “tangle” thing. Laurel’s blog looks lovely. You always find great sites to follow ๐Ÿ™‚

    • ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s the “researcher” side of me – somehow I usually can track something down. You’ll be amazed if you try some tangles; it’s very positive feedback for our deeply buried artist side.

    • And PS you’re pretty good at locating good sites too. I love both Halley and Celine ๐Ÿ™‚

      • thanks Sammy ๐Ÿ™‚ I love them too! And I think I will give the “tangle” thing a try. Why not? Maybe I could do some in Paris…sitting on a bench…in the Luxembourg Gardens…hmmm. Sounds good to me!

      • Pour quoi pas ๐Ÿ™‚

        We spent a lazy afternoon in Lux Gardens – will be able to picture you there tangling !

      • Ok, I looked at the website and you have convinced me to give it a try…I got a book and a set of pens that came with a few “tiles”, so we shall see how this goes! I just like the *idea* of this soooo much! Did you do a class, or just a kit?

      • ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m going to call you The Reluctant Tangler ๐Ÿ™‚ no class, just got a library book. i just started with notebook paper and a pencil. Then I bought pens and sketch paper which I cut to tile size. Here’s an easy way to start – Make a circle then a circle around the circle and keep repeating. Do the same thing with squares, then triangles, then zigzags. Then blacken some or put curlicues on some. Once you feel comfortable, try it with one of the pens on the tile, and use a pattern or two from the websites. It’s really about repetition and not judging ๐Ÿ™‚ and come back if you are afraid. I’ll hold your hand. If I can do this, you can!

      • Thanks Sammy ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll let you know how it goes!

  9. Very cool blog! I’ve added it to my feed, and I look forward to seeing more posts ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. Thanks, Sammy! Can’t wait to check it out!

  11. […] wildly across the internet as if a blog could itself be “tangled.” Yes, grรขce ร  ย Sammy D at Bemuzin, I found yet another fantastique A to Z-er at Alphabet Salad and then I kept following links from […]
