My first zentangle

well after spending the morning cleaning and doing laundry i sat down and browsed through some blogs which led me to lots of zentangles, i have always been fascinated by these and so i made myself a coffee and decided to have some time out creating a zentangle. Oh it was so therapeutic i loved it!  so i made a second one inside a leaf shape. i took a quick lesson from this blog oh you should try one great fun !!

buttercups by the lake

I finally finished this mini landscape quilt. I took this class last year but i had to do the thread painting at home. I wanted to practice a little first but to be honest i never did and today i thought what the heck just go for it and this is how it came out !! I added some yellow french knots to emphasise the buttercups and now i just need to buy a frame to put it in ! Thanks for stopping by and please leave a message i love getting your comments !!
