A Zentangle try
Just a little try at something fun that I learned from my friend, Teri over at Painted Daisies. Hers was so pretty, and more of a traditional zentangle. She took a piece of already watercolor splashed paper and added to it with pen. Mine is light (my pen was running out somewhat), and the homemade paper had such a rough surface, it couldn't grab all of the Sharpies ink. Still kinda cute, eh??? Looks nice on top of the tablecloth as a background.
Life here is rather boring. Just waiting the next 3 weeks to hear about the job I interviewed for. I have been trying to take care of everything that needs (as much as I can anyway) prior to going back to work. Doozey's toenails got trimmed today, and she got a bath. To the vet tomorrow for yearly check up and shots. Then it will be cat's turn.
I have made a decision not to do a vegie garden for the summer. It is just so hot here, and all I can grow is eggplant and my beloved okra. The eggplant is already going and these plants live three straight years (producing non-stop)...so I will just manage the one plant for the summer. My Mom and I have decided that it is far easier to buy fresh okra at the market...sadly.
I sure wish I could find time to sit and keep practicing my embroidery...it is hard. I like the free style of just a practice cloth, but I am also thinking it would be neat to try and make a gift of something embroidered. Any ideas on what would make a good gift for a beginning embroiderer to try?????
Hope everyone had a great Monday! Tomorrow is TAST (Take a Stitch Tuesday over at Pin Tangle, where I see Sharon has already posted the challenge of French Knots! I can do those!!! YEAH!
