I posted this sketch to one of my on-line groups recently, and thought since I don't have much else to share at the moment, I'd post it here to. Someone had pointed us to the zentangle website with the comment that here was something she'd been doing forever and didn't realize it was a learnable, marketable technique! I'd just made this sketch, trying to capture from memory the plowed fields I'd seen driving through the Palouse on my way to Thanksgiving dinner. (Go here to see a photo of the real thing.) Gee, I thought, is THAT what I was doing? Drawing those curving lines certainly was a meditative process, I have to admit.
I was working on cards this afternoon when the sun broke through the clouds and flooded the room. Oh, I do so like quilting in natural light, and it was killing me to stay at my desk, my back to that wonderful sunshine. So I set priority aside and hand quilted on the cross piece for about an hour. Ah, sinful bliss!
