I know who did it :-) The bottom left pattern (with colourful Indian corn) could have come out better. When east and west meet, fusion results, is it not? If you enjoy in what you do, you are certainly a winner If you excel in your efforts, you are certainly a winner Good luck! Regards! - mOhana

Most of our daily visitors know who did this rangoli, including my 8yr old! :) Her remark: "Oh, I know who made this one, there is only one____ who puts the main "thing" in the center to show what was used!" :) I am so glad to see the theme of Fall being used here. I like the design shown at the bottom left, as it reminds me of cinnamon sticks (even though it was corn that was used here) . And, as you know, people use this spice a lot in their cooking/baking, in both sweet as well as in savoury dishes (more in America during the Fall season). Using different shapes of leaves to "display" the various elements of this season makes it all the more colorful. The kids collect these type of leaves to make animal shapes on paper for their craft projects (currently ongoing in almost all elementary schools). I had done a rangoli with red leaves too, some time back, but didn't put the final touches. Just a suggestion, if I may, could you please make use of Holly leaves also to make a future rangoli. I'm going to be trying it sometime in this season, so am wondering if others might also like to try. Thank you for this lovely theme! :)

Each design is compeating with the other. The colours are so pretty and the first one with pine cone attracts me more because i like its spiral design always.

Even though a very small number viewed my rangOli, I am deeply indebted to each and every one of them for their sincere appreciation and suggestions. I am also grateful to you for awarding more stars to my rangOli, not necessarily reflected in the final tally. As far as I am concerned, this was done purely for my joy and your joy. If you have experienced a bit of it, I will consider myself truly blessed. As I repeatedly mention, I am not a traditional rangOli artist as many of you are. I try to assemble patterns again and again and try to see His hand in them. As the great author D'arcy Thompson mentions in his book 'On growth and form' (this is perhaps one of the finest books on the application of mathematical principles to plant and animal kingdom, available in the inexpensive Dover series) God always geometrises!
