Thanksgiving blessings, quote, zentangle

"Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough."
Oprah Winfrey

Yesterday was a good day - our Family shared a wonderful dinner prepared by my brother.  It was nice to catch up with the activities of our neices and nephew and our grandchildren.  And the persimmon pudding was delightful!


The Diva's challenge this week is to create a zentangle without starting with a "string".  The idea being to challenge yourself to design freely.   As I've progressed in the art of tangling, I've found that I really like starting without the basic string.  Especially if I want to try a new tangle pattern.  Starting with a pattern, then adding other patterns as I go seems to bring out more free motion style tangling.
More curves, etc.  Here's the zentangle tile I did for the challenge:

This made me smile. So pretty and whimsical. I love the movement and the shapes reminded me of a jester's hat.
