Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. On Monday were back on Zoom for Tangle Index Time Session 13. Can you believe we’ve created 91 tiles for our indexes now! These one hour sessions really add up. In case you missed it, here’s the wrap up post that contains all the links of the patterns we focused on, as well as a screen recording. Let’s get into it.
What is Tangle Index Time?
On social media I’ve shared pics and posts about working on my Tangle Index quite regularly. When I do, I always receive lots of comments and messages about it. The main theme of the messages is “I would love to own a tangle index but I struggle to find the time”.
This (in a nutshell) is what the Tangle Index Time Zoom Events are all about. If you’ve been wanting to work on a Tangle Index and have been struggling to find the time to do so, then these events are for you!
Happening each week, these one hour live events are a place where we can meet and work on our Tangle Indexes together. I’ll be continuing to add to mine, and thought we could all work together to build our own.
Do I need special supplies?
All you will need is your regular tangling supplies and whatever you would like to use for your Tangle Index. I use an A4 three-ring binder with 2in x 2in square coin collector sheets because these fit Zentangle Bijou tiles perfectly.
But you can use whatever you like. A notebook, index cards and a box, a display folder…. They will all work.
I have found with Tangle Indexes, the most important thing you need is time to dedicate to working on it. That’s what these hours are about.
Is there a Tangle Index Time Live Event Schedule?
Yes, there surely is. Here is the Zoom Event Schedule for December.
Is there a Facebook Group for Tangle Index Time?
Yes, there most certainly is. The Home for Expressive’s Facebook Group will keep you up to date with;
- The Tangle Index Time live event schedule
- Tangle Index Time Wrap Up posts
- Progress pics from other Expressive’s who are participating in Tangle Index Time.

The Timezone doesn’t work for me. Is there a recording I can watch later?
Yes there is. Since moving to Zoom I have been able to screen record. Please head to this link and use this Passcode to watch the recording:
I have made some small improvements again, but continued to encounter issues. Harry Ting, CZT has been working with me and we are very close toward resolving things. I’m hoping that we will have a screen recording that makes use of the full screen and has no resolution or zooming issues very soon.
And I’d like to thank you very much for your patience as I learn to navigate my way with this technology. It’s new to me and there’s so much I need to learn.

What we focused on for Tangle Index Time Session 13
The theme this week was “technical difficulties” as I tried to manage resolution and zooming issues! Nevertheless I was amazed at how well everyone’s tiles turned out despite the resolution problems.
Haf n Haf was such a versatile pattern to play with and we all enjoyed the focus of Catenarii. We had another week of great patterns to add to our indexes.
1 x Focal pattern – Blind Membrenart by Tomas Padros, CZT
1x Leaf Pattern – Springkle by Zentangle HQ
1 x Grid Pattern – Haf n Haf by Debbie York, CZT
1x Ribbon Pattern – Catenarii by Carmen Menchon, CZT
1 x Filler – Letterish by Jody Genovese, CZT
1x Enhancer – Watercolour backgrounds
1 x String – String 013 by Jill Dobis
Here’s some of the progress pics from those who came along on Monday night. Well done to all involved! More awesome tangling!!
