Good Morning, Quilters and Doodlers!
Today we are doodling overlapping motifs!
Double Email Notifications
File this under–I’d rather be quilting (in fact, I’d rather be dusting or going to the dentist, or….)
A note about DOUBLE DOUBLE Eemmaaiillss!
Many people have written to me about the unsubscribe button and the double email situation.
Please accept my apologies if LKQ has bombarded your inbox every day with two emails! This has been an ongoing and intermittent problem beyond my pay grade. I’ve enlisted help on several occasions and we’ve tried a few things that haven’t worked.
I have just hired a new consultant to help solve this problem.
Over the next week they will be trying a few new things to correct this problem.
Please promise me—If we inadvertently unsubscribe YOU–please look for us and resubscribe.
Thank you in advance for YOUR continued patience!
This week we learned a new motif, Overlapping Daisies.
The motif is not difficult once you learn the “trick”.
And the trick is easier to understand if you doodle first.
Change One Thing
Once you understand how the motif is created, it’s easy to create new motifs.
For example, what if we changed the squared petals to pointy triangles?
We’d would create Overlapping Suns motifs!
Try a New Shape
And what if we changed the triangles to fat, rounded petals?
We’d get a totally different pattern!
Doodling Should be Fun
(Did YOU know when you order anything through my affiliate link, I receive a little “pin-money” that helps me pay for tech consultants? Thank YOU for supporting LKQ every time you shop on Amazon–even if it’s for hair clippers (no–we aren’t gonna do that are we!?))
Doodling with Water Soluble Pencils
I love to doodle with water soluble pencils. It gives you a chance to test color combinations.
Then, add a little water and it’s like magic!
Doodles become mini works of art–or at least lovely stationery or a journal!
What about YOU?
Do YOU LOVE to doodle?
How often do YOU doodle?
Have you stitched YOUR doodles lately?
We’d LOVE to hear!
Your Tech-Challenged, Doodle-Loving Friend,
