As I prepare this we are STILL monitoring Hurricane Dorian’s approach because its forward progress has slowed down considerably and I don’t think anyone really know where it’s going yet.

We are not planning evacuation although yesterday some zones of Palm Beach County were ordered to evacuate mainly because of storm surge considerations. Mobile homes are at the top of the list, as are lower lying areas. Our community was built on a natural ridge (anything above 0 feet ground level qualifies as a hill in Florida 😉 ) so flooding is less a consideration than most other areas, even though we are not far from the shore. We haven’t been ordered to evacuate yet. This has been a very long time to be in a state of uncertainty … and waiting. We keep our fingers crossed, not just for ourselves but for everyone who could be affected.

(And let’s not talk about the 3 other “disturbances” that are out there now … )

CZT Margaret Bremner’s Windfarm seems an appropriate tangle to explore today! Irony completely intended.

Windfarm is a tangleation of the Zentangle®-original Hollibaugh. It would also look great as a colorful ZIA piece.

Margaret illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Windfarm here on her blog where she writes,

“This tangle begins with a long-armed ‘Y’ which then has an aura on either side. Add another Y and aura it too. Some of the arms of the ‘Y’s will need to go under previous arms.You may want to add a single ‘arm’ to fill a corner. Remember to shade it!

Oops, I forgot to shade! Yoiks.

As you enjoy any of the tangles on the site, please leave a comment of thanks and encouragement to show the artists you appreciate them for sharing their creativity to inspire yours. Your comment helps motivate them to continue to share!

    I thought you might have chosen “Windfarm” on purpose!! 🙂 Thinking of you two, xoxo

    • Linda Farmer, CZT

      Thanks Sis 🙂 – we’re hanging in there. Just starting to get some rain squalls from the bands. One minute rain white-out, next minute sunshine. I guess this will go on for a while …

  • Tomàs Padrós

    I love seeing this lovely pattern, here. It is a magnificent tangle, Margaret

  • Jody Genovese

    This is a favorite as are so many of Margaret’s patterns and all of her inspirational work.
    Thinking of you and all in Florida and east coast states getting ready for this storm and especially thinking of those in the Bahamas. Cannot even imagine this. Please stay safe.

  • barbara finwall

    Stay safe, Linda!

  • Joyce Blodgett

    Another fun tangle to play with, and how apropro for the foul weather you’re about to experience in FL.

    Please do keep yourselves safe, and since you already know the drill, I’ll just say I’m going to keep you all in my thoughts until I know you’re safe, and the first big wind has gone by.

  • Sue Zanker

    Although I am not fond of Cyclones (Hurricanes) generally, the ones I hate are the “slow ones”, because they seem to cause more damage, here at least. Our last really big one was Yasi which moved very slowly, that was really scary…. so stay safe Linda.
    Another great pattern too, thanks Margaret!

  • Linda Dochter, CZT

    Another one to add to my cache of favorites. Thanks, Margaret. I also appreciate your Notan version of Windfarm, Linda. stay safe.

  • Dessie Arnold

    Thank you both for this, and hope that all in the storm’s path stay safe, and that includes animals as well as people. Linda’s version of this reminds me of Tweak – they both show up in my 2019 Tangles subdirectory and remind me of each other. I can easily see this done in many colors looking like a modern stained glass window.

  • Thanks everyone for your comments! I trust you will enjoy playing with Windfarm.
