farewell for now

It's time for my last post for the year.  I've been to all sorts of places tanglewise this year - plenty of new adventures and old favourites.  And what better way to end than a fusion of the two.

This tile has been sitting quietly on my Leftovers Pile since Adele's 95th String Thing Challenge - way back in the summer of 2015.  Who knows why I got no further than I did.  Who knows what waylaid or distracted me or stole my time.

Forgotten but not gone

But the hint of the frame that I'd started to draw on that square of repurposed packaging seemed a perfect place to lay a section of new official tangle Rumpus.  A touch of festive colours, a touch of white chalk, some graphite and a few dots of silver paint and there it is.

This one asked to be viewed at an angle!

Summer meets winter, old meets new, forgotten meets newly found.  As this year nudges up to the next thanks for sharing it with me, and until the next one, take care.


  1. Wonderful tile with Rumpus! Like the colours!
    I wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy and peaceful New Year!
    Hugs, Annette

    1. Thank you Annette. Best wishes for your Christmas and New Year too. And thank you for all the wonderful Mosaik fun throughout the year!

  2. This is so lovely! I do love Rumpus😀 especially on a repurposed and forgotten tile. Merry Christmas and a Joyful New Year 😉

    1. Yes, I think Rumpus will feature often in next year's tangling. And the forgotten tiles are a joy - like swapping with myself! I think when my stash runs out I might intentionally forget more!

      Best wishes for your festive season too, and thanks for all the friendship, swaps and fun throughout the year!
