Better late than never!
Ho ho happy new year! Christmas came so fast this year I am just now getting in the spirit, and the rest of the world is ready for New Year's Eve... What's up with that?
I am always running behind everyone else -- I'm the last out the door while everyone is waiting in the car, I'm the last to finish eating at a restaurant, I'm the one at the back of the group straining to get a glimpse of whatever is going on. (sigh) After all these years of living, I finally have an idea of why this is – I'm always so absorbed in what I am doing or seeing in the moment that I have a hard time raising my eyes to the next thing, and the next thing, and the next thing. At least that's my excuse. Ha!
This was during my "Zentangle" phase. I used a Micron 01 ink pen to zentangle the designs on plain white cotton fabric, added batting and backing to make a quilt sandwich, quilted the lines with black thread, and used color fabric markers to fill in the shapes and/or doodle more patterns!
