Sir Terry Wogan
His warm charm and wit, which could be heard first thing every morning, just made you feel he was sat next to you chatting over a cup of tea. If you got stuck in a traffic jam at that time of the morning and looked around you it was immediately obvious who was listening to him in the other cars by the laughter on people's faces. He used to talk about everyday things such as some programme that had been on the night before, all the sorts of things you talk about with friends.
Three things that stand out for me, but were not everyday subjects, were Hissing Sid, The Janet and John stories and Silent Fireworks. All these things will mean nothing to anyone who has not listened to him.
I could go on forever and still not be able to explain why he was so beloved so I will just mention one more thing. Sir Terry Wogan, like a lot of celebrities, did a lot for charity. Sir Terry every year, right from the very first thought of it, hosted Children In Need. This raised an enormous amount of money and the cartoon character associated with it is Pudsey the Bear. Pudsey normally wears a colourful spotted bandage across his eye, but today Pudsey joins us all in mourning as you can see in the picture above.
So, on to happier subjects. HQ has released another tangle pattern, Molygon. I love it. I had already started playing with it before I read the Diva's Challenge and this is one I had already drawn,, I was just trying some of Maria's ideas.

The mookas look really good around the molygon! :-)ReplyDelete
I love your Molygon. So sad about Terry Wogan. He had such a smiley voice!ReplyDelete
So sorry you lost someone who brought so much joy to your life. Broadcasters can almost become like dotted-line members of the family after a time. They leave a big hole when they are no longer with us. :-( I do love your tangles. The first one looks like an amoeba that is moving gracefully across the paper...ReplyDelete
So sorry that you will not be able to hear the voice that gives you joy and helps you through the day. Your tiles are gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Beautiful work on the tiles.ReplyDelete
I love all three of your molygon tiles. The coloured one is so vibrant. what medium did you use to get such brilliant colours?ReplyDelete
I just used my ordinary Faber Castel coloured pencils this time, makes you wonder sometimes why one spends so much on expensive ones doesn't it!Delete
Sometimes a personnality is important in our life...ReplyDelete
Beautiful work, bravo !
Very nice - I like the way you built a tangle off a tangleReplyDelete
All three tiles are interesting. They don't look like the same artist created them all. Good on you for being so versatile.ReplyDelete
Great tiles,and all three so different.ReplyDelete
The first one is my favorite, but also love the colored one!
All are beautiful, love the bright colored one. And the first ..... stunning.ReplyDelete
So sad to hear about Sir Terry Wogan. Your tiles are beautiful, each in its own special way.ReplyDelete
Very nice done, the tree of them, my favorite is the first one because he is really special!ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear about the loss of such a special voice...ReplyDelete
Your first Molygon tile is beautiful, it's my favorite!
the first one is amazing. It's a good idea to associate molygon with mooka. I have never that sort of idea.ReplyDelete
Beautiful work! I especially love the first one. Your Mooka is so elegant.ReplyDelete
Wonderful pieces. The top one does look very "Maria" like :) Love that brightly colored one too. Sorry for your loss.ReplyDelete
Yes, YT, I miss him too. For me it was that combination of complete silliness and very sharp wit that made him special. Your tiles are pretty impressive, showing a wide range of ideas and ways to use what looks as if it will be a very versatile pattern.ReplyDelete
Condolences on the loss of your morning "friend". I totally understand what a void he left for those for whom he was a comfortable "friend" for many years. I like all your Molygon tiles, but especially the first one which feels very elegant. Molygon has already become yet another one of my tangle favorites.ReplyDelete
Rip sir terry wogan was such a shock on Sunday children in need won't be the same, as was the Eurovision when Graham Norton took over from Terry. Makes my laugh that I didnt realise he was Irish until a few years ago! Hehee. I love your brightly coloured molygon, and the mooka one.ReplyDelete
Isn't is sad when a beloved soul who has become part of your life, if only through their voice on the air, is lost to you? So sorry to hear this. But, my goodness, you really took Molygon by the horns this week! What a nice variety of treatments you gave it! Love them all!ReplyDelete
All three are so beautiful, the colored is my favorite!ReplyDelete
All three are wonderful and so different! Especially I like the first one with your lovely Mooka!ReplyDelete
Beautiful tangling! I continue to love your colouring, and your cute easel to display tiles.ReplyDelete
Really love your Molygon with Mookas! And it was the morning after my father-in-law died that I heard about Terry. They were the same age and cancer got them both. So sad. AxxxReplyDelete
I like your warm words about Sir Terry Wogan. I did not know him, but he must have been an extraordinary man!ReplyDelete
Your tiles are beautiful, all of them. Molygon has so many possibilities- I love this tangle .
Like your combining Molygon with both Mooka and Bloomin Butter. Your one with color reminds me or ribbon candy.ReplyDelete
Your challenge pieces are all wonderful. The first is my favorite, though, if I may say so.ReplyDelete
I love how your Mooka comes out of the spaces between Molygons. Thanks for teaching me about Sir Terry Wogan. The world needs more people who offer a happy start to our days. Such a gift.ReplyDelete
