This pic began as a doodle. The plan was to make a zentangle, inspired by Kate I. (Take a peek at Kate's zentangles, they're beautiful!) This is where I ended up!
I was thinking about my mother as I doodled (she died 12 months ago), about how creative she was.
Mostly her creativity emerged from the sewing machine and I remember a beautiful fabric collage she made of a night-time scene, handstitched with twinkling stars. She made tiny dolls clothes for our 'barbies' and clothes for us five kids.
Back in the seventies she made a deep purple caftan for me with a butterfly embroidered on the front, after I had described it to her once. It was perfect! She was quite talented in this way and happily, she passed on her creative gene to my siblings and I, in one way or another. Thanks Mum!
