Nimble Thimble Meeting-Zentangles Fun

 I did a bit of clean up in the studio today and then got my blue four patches done for the alternate block on RSC Sampler 2015.

 I brought my teeny tiny twisters for show and tell to Nimble Thimbles tonight too.  Several of the gals brought their blocks or tops from our Quiltville Happy Scrappy Houses Workshop too.
  This is Kathy O with hers.  Love it!
 This gal made different blocks.  She had a church, school, etc.  Really cute and some of her fabrics were stone or wood looking too.
 This gal had really happy houses too.  Love it sashed in the narrow yellow.  I didn't get a picture of Kathy K. with her blocks but they were cute too!

 I went ahead and decide to join in on making one block to be put in a pool for someone to win.  Maybe I will get lucky.

 Our presentation was given by Amy on Zentangles.  I really didn't know much about it or think I would have a lot of interest in it.  I am no artist so I don't even try stuff that seems artsy.  However, it was really fun to try it out and I could see myself doing it now and then.  I thought it was a great gift idea for others who might like it too.
 Here are my first Zentangles.  Apparently Pinterest has tons of designs because people are always developing new ones.

 Amy uses it in her quilting and so this is how it really applied to us though I don't plan on trying that I think I may just make doodling more a part of my life.  It really was relaxing!

I love Amy's owl too!
