New Tangle - Beloved

Hi everyone! My October vacation didn't go as planned. Sadly I had to have my bulldog, Bart, put down. He was not doing very well. He kept collapsing and having difficulty breathing, wasn't eating and lost 10 pounds. He had actually collapsed and stopped breathing the night before and when we went to lift him up it started his breathing again. The next morning we made the hardest decision we had to make. Everyday I miss him and I am thankful for the 10 years we got to have with him. His mischievous ways always delighted us and kept us on our toes; he certainly lived up to his name sake of Bart Simpson.

During the last week we got to spend with him he laid with me while I created a new tangle. A week later the tangle was named "Beloved" in memory of Bart.

In these directions you can see a light penciled grid line. You can also create this tangle without the grid to get more freedom. Hope you enjoy it!

Miss you, Bart! <3


  1. Your tangle is so beautiful. And it's inspiration is just as beautiful. I know this must be hard. Several years ago we had to make the decision - one I have never had to make - to put our gorgeous little "mutt" of 19 years down. That was near traumatic for me. Happily a bit later, we were joined by an energetic pound puppy. I love the pic of Bart at the window - so handsome.

  2. You have created a wonderful Tangled memory for Bart. When I use this pattern, I will think of you and Bart.

  3. This is a lovely tangle and the dedication to Bart is so sweet. My most sincere sympathy for your loss. I know through personal experience just how difficult it is to lose your 'beloved'
    Best regards, Bette Abdu

  4. Today I found your tangle at youtube and tryed to learn it. It is very beautiful, I love it but it makes me a bit sad to read what the inspiration was for it.
