What could be more stripey than a Grevy's zebra at the Bronx Zoo, New York?

LOL Dot, I'd worry about you if you've been seeing spots!

I am really losing it lately! So sorry. As you see I have changed it to Stripes spots and Patterns in general. Forgive my summer madness!

Of course, whilst in the USA, you can't go far without seeing the Stars & Stripes somewhere.
This is the hotel I stayed in on my 2 visits to New York:


(Even some of the people walking passed are wearing stripes...) smile

I can't be the only one who looked at the abbreviated thread title and thought "Strip Fun Trivia? Egad." Better head to the gym.

lol halekotsi! (can we call you something for "short"?). Feel free to post pix - it's fun!

RMG, lovely lemur (was that at a zoo or a "habitat"?)

Okay this one is blurry, for good reason. It was the beginning of the ninth game (for the championship of the universe of course) after an afternoon of our foursome trying to come up with the "perfect" margarita on a camping trip (hence the hokey plastic gingham red tablecloth for the picnic table in the background lol).

Anyway, I sort of liked the pattern in this pic and have always thought that a quilt made for an avid Scrabble fan would be a really really cool gift (unfortunately, I'm not a very good seamstress or I'd have made one already for my bestest girlfriend - she always wins at the game too, arghh!).

Inside the Hawa Mahal (Palace of Wind) in Jaipur. When the purdah system was in place, women from the royal family used to watch important events and processions from the many windows of the palace.

Love all the patterns in your pics, folks! From me, the stained glass window in the church of St Michels, Brasparts, in Britanny, France :
