August 8th: Thursday Art Date With Rain - Patterns


Hello Friends! 

August 8th's theme for our art date is: Patterns. (please visit Rain's Garden on Thursday August 8th to post your link!)

Patterns are everywhere around us! In fact, look up from your computer right now, I bet you will find a pattern somewhere in your home or outside your window.


When I do a pattern drawing, I actually find it a little bit tedious, but I want to challenge myself this time around and come up with something really fun to do!


I used to do a lot of knitting. I love EASY knitting patterns! I'm not much into the complicated stitches because I get easily distracted. I knitted eight of these Christmas Stockings for the pets back in 2017. Six for ours and we were babysitting two other dogs. It was quite a lot of knitting!


I didn't have the energy to knit out entire names...these stand for: Charlie, Jack, Marlene, Pavlov and Stella - the five dogs...and Dana, Leo, Oscar, our three cats. Pavlov and Stella stayed with us for 9 months and I still miss them a lot!!

Whatever patterns you create, please share them on Thursday's Art Date on August 8th!! Here are some internet images to inspire you!

Thanks Baili :)) I remember doing those stockings...it was a labour of love! For 8 pets...I had a lot more knitting energy back then lol! The peacock is so cheerful! But I got bored of the patterns, that's why I want to challenge myself!! It's a good exercise to do once in a while! :)
