Navaho is a new tangle

Navaho, Knightsbridge, Cadent Border w Black Pearl, Fiore, Jalousie, Striping

This is a 3.5 Zentangle using the new tangle Navaho.  It was done with a two-pencil string (holding two pencils in one hand to draw the string design).  

We are having some "moderately" nice weather here in the north woods...temps ranging in the 70-75 degree range with some on and off sunshine.  Our guests are wearing sweatshirts much of the time but also we have had enough sunshine to get down to sit on the deck/pier and to take the grandkids out tubing.  The mosquitoes are STILL amazingly awful.  I guess we'll have to wait to the first frost to diminish them! 

There is a decidedly fall feeling in the air up here which would normally come in about 2-3 weeks.  We feel it at the end of August of every year...just a shift in the humidity, the length of days, and subtle nature changes like falling acorns and yellowing of the roadside ferns.  All that is beginning to happen now. (Although I haven't heard the acorns yet.)  I am into making soup and cabin stew and pumpkin bread!  Mornings are "brisk".  Autumn is not official until after the first frost and I can wait for that!!!

  1. We definitely have a fall feeling here in Ohio also - maybe will be down in the 40's tonight.

    You have been a busy lady this summer and I admire all your activities. I also admire the zentangles and appreciate that you are introducing us to the newer designs.
