This week’s zentangle challenge at I am the diva is to use Flux. I thought it would be fun to use it on a spread in my altered book Rooie. The background is acrylic paint. It was fun!
Op zoek naar variatie is Dutch for seeking variation.

The last few weeks I had no time to do the zentangle challenges at I am the diva. This morning I just made time. I combined challenge 208-210 in  this ZIA in my red Moleskine. Challenge 208 was a duotangle: Cubine vs Poke Root. For challenge 209 you had to use green and this week’s challenge 210 was Spiral string.

A few weeks ago I found Sam in my cupboard. He was still waiting for his legs.
I already crocheted his legs, so all I had to do was attach them.
Sam is now a very happy dog!
Sam is designed by Herriet.

Work In Progress Wednesday - March 18

I added 2 needlepoint stitches to my Phoenix.
Parisian stitch in Appleton wool . . .
. . . and Byzantine stitch in 2 threads of stranded floss.
This is my last Work In Progress Wednesday post. Of course I keep blogging about this project, but WIPW is not working for me anymore. It feels like another task on my growing to-do-list. I just want to be free to write about it when I feel like it and write about other things on Wednesdays.

Mr. Leaf

Mr. Leaf is the result of a mystery card swap at Fibre Fever. We had to pick 5 numbers and the host told you what they represented. I had to use a piece of blue fabric, a moustache, a leaf, a few French knots and beads.
And this is the card I received. It’s made by Miriam. She had to use a heart, rain, a piece of green fabric, hand embroidery and a square. Isn’t it lovely?

Teesha Moore inspired patches 1

I’m participating in a series of swaps for Teesha Moore inspired patches. My January patch is still on its way to Stephanie, but my February patch to Teresa arrived a few days ago. Teresa likes gardening, so I choose a garden themed fabric and added a TAST stitch. It’s barb stitch, TAST stitch 138. I decorated it with French knots. The thread is stranded floss.
This is the pretty patch I received from Joyce, just love the owl charms!
I wrote about the making of similar patches here, with links to the original tutorials from Teesha Moore.

Owl from Janny

This year I’m participating in the fabric book swap at Fibre Fever again. My theme is owls. Janny made this gorgeous page for me, I like it very much.
 Dank je wel, Janny!
