Well, I opened the challenge at work and searched for things on my desk that I could trace:
I used these to trace a string into a new sketchbook (which I do NOT like. The paper is thin, yet super "toothy" so it soaks up ink. My niece or granddaughter might like it, but I won't be using this sketchbook after all)
But here is the traced string in progress:
This was my "between calls" project at work, where we were only moderately busy, so I was able to get some things done with minimal interruptions from my job. hahahaha!
The first pattern I thought of was Yew-Dee, and from there, the rest sort of fell into place, ending up looking like a basket.
|Yew-dee, Narwhal, Carpet Daisy, Tipple, Crazy Poky String|
After I got done with this I looked up. There, tacked to my cubicle wall, is a piece I created a while back...Circles! So I took a pic with my iPhone and here it is
I agree with Laura: circles are relaxing to draw. I can fill a page with tipple, scruffle, go4th, jetties, or whatever circular patterns in a JIFF.
