Here is a carpet doodle. After weeks and weeks of almost nothing but endless medallion doodles, a trend which is continuing still, it was nice to see this one in the pile.
Besides not being endless concentric circles, this doodle has some elements that are worth noticing. First, there is a lot of "border" type patterns in place of my familiar single shape in repeat. You can see it in the double scallop + diamond + dots and in the wave + half circle + dot motifs.
The other thing that I find interesting is the varying corner treatments of the circle in a square motif. It is far more normal for me to treat them like this or this. I visually blank out the shape, rather than use it.
Fall is apparently setting in starting tomorrow. Up here in the GPNW, the change from summer to fall is often like a switch has been thrown. I have often been amazed at how sudden it is. So, since today is supposed to be the last warm day for the foreseeable future according to the weather guys, I do not want to spend it here in front of the computer. I will have plenty of time once the blogging seasons set in.
