zen

the holiday's are coming and every year i make gifts for my family and quilting friends.  since i have been doing zentangle, i have decided to do some zentangle on fabric, bags and cards.    i have been working on a lady that i have been drawing on fabric.  this will  be made into a quilt.  it will be call  Ms. Zen, i really like how it looks.  i might make this a red and white quilt.  i am also zentangling on bags and i am still trying to decide if i am going to keep making them for my family.  i am also doing a little knitting. so with all these projects going on somebody will at least get something from me.  i am zentangle on cards and drawing names on the cards.  the grand kids and a couple of nieces will get gift cards from me.  and a couple of x-box games for the boys. my back and knees are still giving me problems so no shopping in the malls.

here are some pictures of what i have been doing.  still working on the lady, here are a few cards that i have been making for my quilting friends.  most of the time i usually make quilt related item for my quilting friends.  the bags are for some of my cousins and one for a friends birthday present.    i know thanksgiving is not here yet and i am talking about gift making.  i like to start early, don't want to feel rush. 

stitches until next time.

I'm new here. What's Zentangling? Is is done as ink or embroidery?

zentangle is simlar to doodling. it is ink drawing on paper. but it is slowly entering the quilting world. go to zentangle.com to get more info. and check out amazion.com on book on how to zentangle and books on zentangle being used in quilting. it is very relaxing. my blood pressure has gone down since i have been doing zentangle.

This is so cool! zentangling is new to me! I've got to give this a try, even though I don't quilt very often any more. My passion is quilt history. Stop by Quilt History Reports and check my list of previous post-subjects. Some are long like a story with lots of photos and some are short with a few photos. I love to research and write about quilt history! The more quilts that are made, the more future quilt historians will have to write about so keep up the good work! karenquilt.blogspot.com
