i'm suddenly seeing slow progress in the wrist/arm/hand, with less pain. i was able to tangle a bit longer today. hurrah!
at first, i did a monotangle:
i did this in a pre-strung zentangle journal so i was following their string, which ran off the upper left-hand corner of the journal page.
after finishing--i thought--i headed out to a yoga class.
when i got home i looked again and wanted to fill in the rest of the string lines, which can be seen faintly on the page above.
so i did, with this result:
I like this better. it's not great, but it IS great to be able to tangle again. in fact, I am thrilled. I just hope not to "overdo," and set myself back.

Hey Meridiana, I am glad to read you are progressing in your health status and can even participate in Yoga (wrist needed in both hands!!). Soon this whole wrist matter is only remembered by your pages (...and a few of us). Your not so monotangle tile.seems perfect to me, but then I didn't look at it under the microscope. Lesson learned today: when stuck in tangling, go do Yoga to unstuck. (I will be doing a lot of Yoga then)

Ha, Susie--it's CHAIR yoga, so no wrist involvement at all. I'm a long, long way from being able to do regular yoga! But I'll get there at some point. yes, i will! thanks.
