“Slow down, you’re moving too fast…”

Diva’s Weekly Tangle Challenge #278 

  • Use Knightstar in a tile
  • My personal challenge: Slow down you’re moving too fast (Bijou agrees)

It was a happy surprise when I chose a Bijou tile to try Knightstar and the next tile in the stack was one of those lovely “words of wisdom” tiles that come with the boxed set. “Slow Down.” Just what I needed to hear:)

  • (Above) Official Zentangle “Slow Down” Bijou tile and my Bijou tile: Knightstar border around Drupe
  • (Below) 3.5 Tile : Knightstar corners, Zinger, Flux, large Henna Drum, Rounded Rixty, Abundes, a variation of Finery around a fan-like Flux


My brain couldn’t handle more than Knightstar corners, this time. The grid lay-out concept was winding me up – not slowing me down. I did learn the basics of a new pattern from this challenge, and I think Knightstar makes a cute corner!

 I’m happy to be slowing down. It’s another hot toasty New England day. The air conditioning is on- and there will be no multi-tasking. E-mail, paperwork and dinner will happen – all in good time.

Happy tangling! Jill
