When you've written those words as many times as I have today you begin to doubt your grasp of the English language. They are the right words aren't they? Even if they just look like nonsense to me now?
So, I'm having a stripey week this week and have been seeking out, photographing and uploading lots of striped items to my Chasing Patterns Flickr set :
After spending a day surrounded by it all I think we can add eye-ball-dazzling-optical-illusion-inducing to the list of stripy side-effects!
Two things I've learned from the exercise:

- The designers at Gap must like stripes almost as much as I do [or they may just see me coming and add another striped T-shirt to their ranges].
Furthermore ... this stripe census is incomplete but I simply couldn't face digging out every striped scarf and pair of socks and pants I have!! Another time maybe.
Early in the week I posted this stripey, recycled carrier bag, brooch project to my Copy + Paste blog as part of the latest challenge:

Ok then, I'll leave you to it while I grab a cuppa and put my stripey Vans up.
Stripey? Stripey? Str-i-p-ey??? Is that even a word???
