Organising tangle patterns using Evernote

I had a few requests for a bit more information on how I use Evernote to organise my patterns. You can find the original post here. Now, keeping in mind that I'm probably not utilising Evernote to it's full capacity, here's a quick video showing what I'm doing with it.


 Hopefully you find it useful :)



  1. So clear and helpful! Thank you so much. I may now have a summertime project (like I actually needed another one!) Great for using when I don't have my very large notebook with me.

  2. Brilliant!! Finally, an organizational system that answers my wishes ... who knew it's been around for a decade! Aurgh! I'm such a computer dinosaur! But your intro to Evernote confirms ever-lution is possible, even for me! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  3. I started doing this today with Evernote. Love, love love this idea! Thanks SO much for sharing!

    1. You're welcome, Barbara! So glad it was helpful :)

  4. I've had Evernote for work, but never imagined I could use it for some purpose SO USEFUL! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I do enjoy the idea of putting each tangle on a piece of paper and into a book, but taking my iPad instead of a heavy 3-ring notebook sounds so much better. And it weighs a lot less than a 3-ring binder. Thank you! p.s. I'm just getting started tangling and enjoy your blog very much.

    1. Hi Terry, thank you :) Glad you found your way to my blog.

      Evernote is fabulous to mimimise on things you have to carry around :)

PATTERN - Faux Weave

I am getting ever closer to the finish line of my course. I have one more round of assessments to go and should be done in around 6 weeks - I cannot wait! I have enjoyed it, but am more than ready for it to be over. Thanks for hanging in there with my erratic posting over the past year or so :)

My desk, which has a myriad of buried treasure amongst the clutter  (my organisation "system" tends towards scribbling things down on scraps of paper when I get an idea then throwing them on my desk). Anyway, I had a bit of a clean up last night and it offered up this pattern ready to scan and share.

I love, love, LOVE easy patterns and how, often, from a simple construct the illusion of a more complex design can be created.

I think that "faux weave" is one such example. What could be easier than spiralling around a single line? Stack these spirals together using a square grid, alternate the direction, add some basic fill and shading and all of a sudden you have a woven effe…

String Rose PATTERN

Well, d-day has almost arrived. Tomorrow I head back to school. Where did the summer go? At least the class schedule is looking pretty light and I'll only be at school for 2- 2 1/2 days a week.

Today I want to share a really simple technique/pattern I've called "String Rose". This idea first made an appearance on the blog during the old into new challenge back in 2014. I named one of the experimentation tiles as Trentwith and though this pattern was the initial source of inspiration, my version takes a different approach. I had always meant to share the technique as it's so simple, and fun, but I just didn't get around to it. Until now! 2 1/2 years later.....haha.

O.k., here goes........

The String Rose Pattern - this shows the base technique.

As it's all done in one continuous line, I thought a little insta-video might help out:

Puffy 8's PATTERN

O.k., wow. Another year done and dusted! Can you believe it's 2017? Me? I'm still reeling.

So, where did 2016 go? I had so much that I wanted to get done here on the website, but, life takes some interesting turns and my return to full-time study in 2016 though not planned, was so interesting - I loved it!

Since term ended for our long summer break, I've been periodically working on tidying up my files and found some unpublished patterns that I hadn't got around to posting. I'll put them up over the next few weeks.

Today I'm sharing a pattern called Puffy 8's - it's another spin off of 2/8's (love that base pattern!)

You could stop at step 5 above, or keep going to fill all the spaces.
And, what's life without a bit of freeforming?
Wishing everyone a happy, productive 2017!
