You know how it is when something should be simple but isn’t? Well that’s me for the last two days. I blame the Diva. Worse, I blame the Diva’s locum. This week, Chris LeTourneau, whose book “Made in the Shade” is one of my Bibles, has offered us the pattern Seton to use for this week’s Challenge. It’s rather a nice grid pattern with circles behind squares and my only problem, I thought, was how to present it. Ha! In fact, Ha Ha! It’s taken five attempts before I got anything like a reasonable result and even then, when I went on the various blogs and saw what other people had done, I still wanted to throw them all away. (Mine, not theirs.)
And finally –
Prior to this, it hadn’t been such a bad week . I did a couple more card toppers for Christmas, sort of Zendala meets Santa:-
And I did a Christmas card for my grandson, Ben which I was fairly happy with:-
And we’re having a Zentangle afternoon at our house tomorrow, so I’ve been making soups and cakes for lunch. (Scotch Broth or Leek and Potato, with bread rolls made fresh tomorrow morning, followed by fresh fruit and/or Apricot Cake, Date and Pine Nut Slices or Lemon Drizzle Cake. ) Ask me to bake, fine; ask me to sew, OK; ask me to write, smashing fun; ask me to teach, you got it.
But don’t, I mean DON’T, ask me to do Seton again!
