As many of you know, I sew in my kitchen and store most of my everyday stash on my dining room table which is in direct view of the kitchen. Obviously, with people coming for the holidays, and entertaining to do, I had to change my plan of attack to keep myself busy. After all, it was hard enough to find places to hide the stuff in the beginning and I couldn't keep dragging it in and out all the time. Somewhere, or another, a few weeks before this, I ran across a site with marvelous doodles which fascinated me to no end. Upon further investigation, I discovered the name for these beauties, was "Zentangles". Right then, I knew that would be my "project" for entertainment once my junk was packed away. From my investigations I knew that I'd only need a drawing pad and micro pen and I'd be all set to "play" too, but as long as I had time, why not order some books for more information?
I do tend to get carried away sometimes when something gets in my head! Just ask my husband! It seems I just can't get it out until I have attempted it. Well, when the books came, I had all I could do to finish my sewing projects, I was so excited! I couldn't wait to start, so I divided my pages into 3.5 inch squares and went to town:
Well, then I did a few cards:
And those were only the bird cards, I never photographed the other ones. And I also did a box:
Then some t-shirts:
I think I'm done now for awhile........maybe until the next time I have to clean up my dining room table......BUT, in the meantime, I have to figure out how to get those marvelous designs into a quilt. Wouldn't that be something???? Then to add some color? Wow! My imagination is going crazy with the possibilities!! Stay tuned....I'm sure I can come up with something!!
Oh....one more thing.......thank you all ever so much for all the kind and sweet comments you wrote to me on my last post. I was "blown away", truly! That was the best Christmas present of all....really!
