Challenge#80, quote, life

"Life's what happens while you're making other plans."       -unknown

Life certainly has taken me away from my blog for several weeks now.  First my brother was hospitilized, then my daughter was hospitilized and then my granddaughter was in a car accident and broke her femor bone in 4 places and was hospitilized.  For about three weeks I practically camped out at various hospitals!  All are out now, and things are looking up for them.

Now I'm finally getting back to making a zentangle for "The Diva's" weekly challenge #80.  This week's challenge is to use the tangle pattern M2 by Mimi Lemport.  And it was a challenge as I'd never tried this pattern before. (It's the pattern on the left side of my zentangle).

Challenge #77

The tangle is called "Fiore di Pietro", and it's created by Rho Densmore, CZT.  Fiore di Pietro is a beautiful loving tribute to Rho's brother in law.  Please read her words on her blog and see the instructions there as well.

The above quote from The Diva's blog describes this weeks challenge much better than I could ever say.

Here's my finished zentangle tile using her tangle design.  Rho, you certainly have my permission to use and/or copy my zentangle in any way you prefer:

Zendala #12, quote

Age becomes reality when you hear someone refer to that attractive young woman standing next to the woman in the green dress, and you find that you're the one in the green dress.
