Inspirational! I love to see Zentangles all tangled up in other mediums. It's such a great "door opener"!

Just beautiful:) I especially like the last one...the colors and patterns just came together so uniquely. I wonder if these were hand-stitched, cross stitched or machine stitched. Either way, amazing!!! and thanks so much for sharing.

Allow me to add my kudos. As an old needlepointer myself, I have some small idea what it takes. Good one!

I just love how doodling has become such an expressive art form. But, to see it in stitching is even more fun!! I love the needlepoint and would love to see more of it.
