Really?

Really? Yellow leaves already? Didn't we just have our 5 days of sunshine? It seems like summer finally just started! Actually, I'm ready for fall. The summer was so dreary that I'm looking forward to autumn colors and snow instead of rain.

I did an election day zendala so my theme is stars and stripes and red, white and blue. I think there's a little Dutch influence creeping in too! Everything that isn't stars and stripes are the type of designs I used to draw on my peachie folders in high school. Back before I knew what a zentangle was. I thought I was just doodling.

Wow when I looked at your zendala I thought I saw some Delft blue there and then some real Amrican colors and patterns yes certainly both! fUNNY YOU SAW THAT TOO!

Oh yes and here autumn is nearly here as well........
We had a great summer I think and I don't like autumn...... but there is nothing you can do about it, just to accept and try to enjoy it, which I will try.

5 days of summer sunshine......poor you but then again you live in such a gorgeous state. Nothings beats Alaskan nature

Have a nice weekend!!!

Fall already? I suppose it is about that time.. Maybe you'll get a little indian summer up your way.

I love fall, but it never lasts long.

I love the zendala. Patty you need to buy one of those software sketchpad programs for your computer to sketch/create your artwork.

(Google Doodle for example)

Fall time? It was 91 today, but it's going to be fall soon here too. On my drive today you can see just a hint of color.

Well, I miss the seasons being here in Malaysia, but can't say I envy you the shortness of your summer! Great zendala!
