Incidentally, the stitches that I am using on the sofa are the same ones that I showed you in the chair tutorial. So if you are crazy enough to want to do a seven foot sofa, you have all of the information in the chair tut to do it....
After I worked on that for a while, I made the mistake of going to look at dashboard and the list of blogs that I follow.
In one of the blogs, I found an interesting bit about a technique called Zentangle. I went to this site.http://zentangle.blogspot.com/ And that was all it took....Off on a tangent I went.
The inner six year old got sidetracked. I think that it was too much chocolate mocha cake that made me do it. I have been doing things similar to this since college, but I never knew that there was a legitimate name for it.....Until now. What it is, is a form of meditation whilst doodling. They are even teaching classes in how to do it!
Next I looked at some people doing it on U Tube. After that, I went to Flickr and put in "Zentangle" and got a group with thousands of examples. http://www.flickr.com/groups/zentangle/pool/ The mind boggles!
That kept me busy until Walter arrived home from Detroit at 11:something.
These are in the order that I did them. When I took photos this morning, I could see some areas that needed a bit of fixing, but all in all, I was happy with what I did.
Anyway, the birthday is over and I am back to reality now.
The witches are meeting here today, so I have to go fix something to eat and clean up a bit.
Meanwhile, go look at the pretty doodles. The flickr site will keep you busy until your eyes are crossed.
I promise to put the pen and pad away and get back to work on the sofa after the witches are gone.
Do try Zentangling. It is fun and easy to do and there really aren't any rules.
See you tomorrow.
