A-Z Journal - E is for Eddyper

The next instalment in my A-Z Journal - "Eddyper". I don't think I've ever drawn this pattern outside of my pattern file, so it was fun to have a play with it.

You can find the pattern step out for Eddyper on Tangle Patterns: here. 

It's been a busy week on the farm with 3 baby calves born - Miss Jersey had her 5th calf, so I'll be back to daily milking again later on this week.

And, for those who wanted to see my fringe - I'm not keen on taking photos of myself, but I have a bad phone selfie for you :)

The last time  had a fringe was back in the 90's and when my 28 year old son visited the other day the first thing he said to me was that I had "netball" hair. When my kids were younger I played a lot of competitive netball, had a fringe and always wore my hair up (still do!) It's funny what kids remember. So there you go, I now have 90's netball hair. hahahaha.

Have a great day!

    1. Thanks Steve! It's been pretty wet around here too. Apparently we're in for an arctic blast all next week too.!! h

  2. I am losing you....no, the other way round... you are losing me! I am still working on the Journal A-Z D for Diva Dance tile. Now you are waaaayyyy ahead of me with yet another exceptional tile. You are forcing me to switch gear.
    As for bad selfies... You haven't seen bad selfies - YET!

    1. I've always been erratic, Susie! I go through periods where I can't stop drawing then weeks, months where I don't do anything at all. I just go with the flow these days. hx

  3. Love your netball hair! (of course I don't know what netball is any more than I knew what fringe was, LOL!) You look young and beautiful! Yes, kids are so funny, especially when they share their memories now that they are grown-ups! Nice tangle too. Thanks for sharing with us!

    1. Thanks, Jean. Netball's closest relation is probably basketball - no dribbling in netball, though. I love how some sports are so very "regional". Netball is pretty big in the commonwealth nations - I just googled it and apparently approx. 20 million people play it world-wide. Who knew? I don't think many Australian primary school girls (or boys) make it through the school system without playing a bit of netball.

  4. I love your new hairstyle. Very cute. Going to try Eddyper. Looks like the cow is going to keep you busy.

    1. Thanks, Bonnie. Yes, we're officially back into milking - John and I always start off together so that the calf and cow get used to it, but I'll be on my own with it by Monday. hx

  5. You crack me up, Helen! :) You are adorable, with or without "fringe"! (Here in the U.S. we call it "bangs"!) I love your Eddyper! The shapes you create and the directions you move in your tangling are always so appealing to me ... graceful, dramatic and so deep with shading. You inspire me!!

    1. Thanks, Jan! Eddyper was a bit of a challenge for me, but that's part of the fun, for sure :) h

    1. Hi Barb! Thank you :) I just typed out a netball response above so I'm going to be a bit lazy and paste it again here: Netball's closest relation is probably basketball - no dribbling in netball, though. I love how some sports are so very "regional". Netball is pretty big in the commonwealth nations - I just googled it and apparently approx. 20 million people play it world-wide. Who knew? I don't think many Australian primary school girls (or boys) make it through the school system without playing a bit of netball.

      I played a lot of competition netball on and off, until I was about 35 - I played for a few years after we moved here but unfortunately the local competition was a bit limited in team numbers and grade levels and I couldn't be bothered travelling further afield so I stopped playing, which was a bit sad. It would probably kill me if I tried to play a game now. hahaha. hx
