Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!

Whale! Swim with me, Whale! We will swim far into the sea.
Lyrics from Whale, by Yellow Ostrich.

I was working on this tangle a couple nights ago when my daughter walked past my desk and commented, "nice whale." At that point, I had the string drawn and was working on the pattern hibred that you see filling in the head of the whale. There was one circle on the right-hand side of the drawing and that was it. So, I added a second 'eye' and shaded the lower corner to make a body. Ta-da! Whale! 

This past fall, Kali traveled with a team of ten teens teaching debate and speech skills to students across the United States. They traveled and taught for five months - representing the Institute For Cultural Communicators. One of the songs the team listened to as they traveled was Whale! 

So, today - enjoy my little whale and if you get a minute, check out Whale by Yellow Ostrich. It's different! (And the opening line of the song is Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! - hence, the title of this post.)


  1. Love the whale and the tye in with the video's song. Very cute. Linda E.

  2. It sounds like everyone was on the same wavelength that day! Such a playful what you have created!


I've been waiting to hear from you :).
