Lions, Tigers and Tangles – Oh My!

I finally found her again!

All you bloggers & readers who expressed interest in patterns, doodles and tangles – you might want to visit Alphabet Salad.

I found Alphabet Salad in late March on the A to Z Challenge list; followed her for a couple weeks; lost her in the frenzy of my follows; then finally found her today. Click on “Artsy Craftsy” in her Categories link; scroll through those posts; and you will find 3 patterns for each day of A to Z, plus her ongoing Tangled Tuesdays.

Have fun exploring 🙂


Patterns in Spring

I’m having some trouble engaging my writing mojo after the April frenzy. I thought pre-writing my posts would alleviate that possibility, but all the computer time for reading and commenting was substantial. And … we are having a very late spring. I’m not complaining because others are having frightening, damaging weather, but I do observe the negative effect it has on my energy and motivation. Last week’s snowstorm is going to make everything “pop” in this week’s sunshine and warm temperatures. Finally!

Saturday, I was on the road to my grandkids’ and passed a hillside covered with rapidly greening grass and tiny white blossoms (probably a weed!), with a long row of power lines stretching behind it. Thankfully I can “pattern”, even if my writing brain is snoozing.
