Making patterns……

I see the snow flakes are falling in WordPress land. 🙂  I was reading a blog yesterday that mentioned making patterns for the month of December.  I was instantly intrigued.  I love repeating patterns, etc.  I think that’s why I like to do zentangle type drawings.  So, naturally, I had to see what it’s all about.  This blog is new to me:  a is for anika    If you care to try this, she extends an invitation to join her in making a pattern each day for the month of December.  You choose the media.  I don’t know if I will make a pattern every day, but I’m going to try to do it several times a week.   

I have had another website in my favorites a long time. It’s a wonderful source for pattern.  The blog is called Print and Pattern.  The current page (Dec.3) has a great story about the British designer, Laura Ashley.  Laura got her start making silk screen scarves.

Here is
