Life is being very ordinary, lately. I should be very happy about that -considering I’ve had a lot of very unordinary things happen in my life. Kept thinking that I’d blog when I had something interesting to blog about. Well, instead of never blogging again (cuz nothing interesting was happening) I think I should start blogging about my very ordinary life.
In my ordinary life, like a lot of you, I am interested in all different manner of this and that. Today I found Zentangles.
I don't know if you are aware of Zentangles. Robbie has some examples on her blog --
Be sure and check out Robbie’s “wolves” -- her thread painting is awesome --
She suggests to do a search on youtube for Zentangle. I did and was most fascinated by

There are other Zentangle videos that I want to view.
I doodle when I am on the phone. Usually on the newspaper that is on the table. Or on a scratch pad. DH can usually determine how long I've been on the phone by the amount of doodle on paper!
This would be good practice for free motion quilting. I have heard to draw, or doodle, on paper, the design that you are going to be FMQing in order to get into the Zen. I guess Zentangles would get you into a Zen.
