All Tangled Up...but Slowly Unwinding

I've discovered that working on my tangles is a great stress reliever.  Things around our house have been very hectic lately, and I've found that if I sit quietly in the evening and spend a little time with my tangling, that it tends to calm me a bit.

Thought I'd share a few of my recent tangles.  Some were done while I was sitting at the hospital with my hubby, and then I did a few after I brought him home.

If you haven't tried tangling, you definitely should give it a try...it's fun and relaxing!

This first one is one I did while sitting in the hospital...kinda looks like the shape of a "real" heart, doesn't it? I had no string drawn for this one, just added to each section as I went along.

This next one reminds me of buds blooming.  I also did this one while sitting around in the hospital.


I think this next one is one of my favorites that I've done recently.  I love the mixture of light and dark...


The stress of the last few days finally got to me and these next two tangles are the results from the last couple of evenings.



This next one is just one I threw in for the fun of it.  Very simple...but I love it!


That's it for today.  I have a couple of cards I need to get made, and some work I need to finish. Thanks so much for stopping by! See you next time...

♥ Hugs! ♥

I think my favorite is the 3rd one. I love medallions. I hope your hubby is ok. Sounds scary. Take care.

Susan, I hope things get a bit easier soon, so that you can craft and tangle just for the fun of it!
I thought the first one looked like a heart too, and before I started reading I was wondering if someone was suffering heart problems and it came out in your tangle. I absolutely adore your third one, and the last one, although simple, really appeals to me.
My daughter told me they have been doing some zentangles at school, and she is excited because she has looked at yours and loves them! She's 9.
Oh, and before I go, little Pierce is a cutie! I forgot to comment earlier. :-)

The 3rd one is my favorite also. It reminds me of what one might see looking through a kaleidoscope in black and white. Love it!
