Zendala Dare #38

I took a break from Zentangle for a few weeks while I sewed my owl pillows for Christmas craft shows, and of course shopped for, and enjoyed Christmas with friends and family! I really missed the hours I spend Zentangling, and am glad to be back at it - again part of my daily routine. I love the Zendala Dare ( and my goal this year is to try using tangles in spaces that don't seem obvious. That means circular patterns in angular spaces and visa versa,and moving outside of strings. If I can arrange it, I'd also like to take the CZT course - not that I necessarily want to teach, because I AM RETIRED, but I think just being around the others who are so committed and interested in Zentangle would be wonderful and inspirational. Happy New Year to everyone in the Zentangle community.

Owls being sold at CBC Toronto Charity Craft Show, Dec. 13

It's been a very, very busy couple of weeks as I'm working hard to increase my stock of stuffed Wise Owls to be sold at the CBC Charity Craft Show in Toronto, Dec. 13. If anyone out there is interested in hand made items, I believe this is a fabulous craft show! Held in the Toronto CBC building on Front Street, in the Atrium, on Dec. 13, 2012, from 8:30 - 5:30. If you do come, please introduce yourself to me - I'll be at "Sue's Owlings".
These are examples of my owls, which sell for either $20. or $30. I have over 60 owls, all individually sewn, and named. Each one is unique. I also have my owls for sale at a store in Toronto's Kensington Market, "The Fairies Pyjamas". More pictures can be seen by clicking on the link to my website on the right hand side of this blog.
This is a picture from my first ever craft show last spring, at a school fun fair.
