It's almost the official first day of spring! We've had a number of melty days here in Saskatoon but it could get cold again; you never know with March. In some cultures the spring equinox signals the new year. Somehow, the first day of spring just makes sense for a new year, rather than the middle of winter!

I woke in the night not long ago and had this idea for a tangle, an extremely simple tangle with basically one step! It looks rather festive so I'm calling it Partay. It's in the background of my title tile below.

As Baha'is, my family and I will be celebrating the New Year on March 21... having a PARTAY! We'll be starting the year 168. This is a holy day for Baha'is so family and friends are welcome to join the festivities!

Here in Saskatoon, on Sunday evening we'll have a pot-luck dinner and the organizers have asked people to bring their own dishes and cutlery to avoid the garbage produced by disposable things. Following that there will be musical presentations, a PowerPoint show of events of the past year, dancing and games. It's a family-friendly event with no alcohol and I expect there may be 100 people attending. Should be fun!


  1. Happy New Year! Sounds like a lot of fun. Love the new tangle!

  2. Awesome and really joyful tangle –
    Happy New Year!

  3. This is so much fun, Margaret! I love your party invitation style instructions for the tangle... groovy. :-)

    And Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. xoxo
