This week’s Diva challenge is an interesting one that I have done in the past: make a Zendala out of four tiles by tracing circles. Unfortunately, we are in East Podunk, er, Sparta, Tennessee sitting in a cemetery waiting for the eclipse. And I only have one square tile. So, here is my plate/eclipse tile. I started it in the car on the way down until I got a bit sick, so the lines could be straighter, but, all things considered, I like it.

I used soluna, crescent moon, andromeda, and noom in honor of the Great American Eclipse. Anyone know any other sun, moon, star, or space-themed tangles?

  1. And you did this in the car? My word. I haven’t see the middle pattern before, so that’s one to try at a later date and I love that Noom border. Do you know how weird it is for someone to say they’re sitting in a cemetery in Sparta? I mean, come on, Chris, really? I think maybe it’s a good job eclipses don’t happen all that often, you’re going to get a very odd reputation. (if we start to call you Buffy…..)

    1. Thanks! I started it in the car, hence the oddly shaped circles, etc. but did the noom and andromeda after we stopped:) I guess I could have said we were sitting in the grass outside a church parking lot, but we were pretty close to the headstones. I wouldn’t want to make it sound and less weird than it actually felt!

  2. Appropriate to use eclipse related tangles. Glad you were able to see it. I was stuck at work and it was over cast. Won’t have to go as far in 2024. Like the contrast in your tile between the dark and light.

  3. That is so cool that you drove to Tennessee to see the eclipse. I’ve already told my husband that if we’re still around in 2024, I want to make an effort to go somewhere to see totality. I haven’t heard one person yet who said they were sorry they made the effort—even the guy whose view was clouded over. I guess one lesson is to always have more than one tile in one’s possession at all times. Car or no car, you did a lovely job (as usual) on your tile. I also like the dark band you incorporated. You may only have had one tile, but you had a white pen, so that certainly shows some dedication.


    1. Ah, actually, I only had one original square tile. Got a whole tin of Ren Zen, a pile of 3Z, and a stack of Bijou with all the pens. Just that I had already tangled the squares in my take-away kit. Someday soon, I’ll do a post showing this new kit. I love it. Thanks for commenting. Glad you liked the tile.
