Peg Farmer, CZT writes,

Hi Rick and Maria,

I thought you would enjoy this: several months ago, my youngest grandson (aged 10) and I were tangling at his kitchen table. All of a sudden he said to me, "Grandma Peggy, if you ever want to make something for me...like for Christmas, maybe....you could draw a sword and fill it all full of your little stuff." (How's that for a description of Zentangle from a 10-year old's perspective?)

So, being a grandmother that can certainly take a hint, I made the attached for him for Christmas. He liked it and he even remembered telling me about it.

Happy New Year to you and the whole family!

Thank you for sharing that, Peg!

It's 19" long (the frame is 8" x 20") and Peg used Sakura® Pigma Micron pens, sized .005, 01, 03 and 05.

Now that's one really nice grandma and one really lucky boy! And that's some very cool "little stuff" you have in there!

What a wonderful gift from a grandmother's talented heart -- how delightful! Hooray!

Having clearly conquered it, I'd say the verdict is in: the pen is mightier than the sword!
