Crochet trim on my CQ fan

The last seam on my CQ fan was the curved one. I crocheted a trim in Anchor Aida #10 with a size 1½ hook. The pattern is from the book Exquisite trims in Thread Crochet by Caitlin Sainio.
Take a look at the details on this CQ fan here.

Carin’s Morning Painting

Remember the pretty card I got from Caatje?  Of course I wanted to sent her a card too. I translated one of her morning paintings to thread. It ended up being a small wallhanging!

Stenen Tijdperk

This week’s zentangle challenge at I am the diva is Traced Object Strings. We bought a new game called Stenen Tijdperk recently and I kept the stencils, because I wanted to use them for something artsy. 
I just made one string and started tangling.
This is my 1500th blog post, so I wanted to do something special. I took lots of progress photo’s and turned them into a slideshow. You can watch it here.

Fanz on my shoe

This week’s zentangle challenge at I am the diva is UMT Fanz. My shoe is inspired by the pretty boot template from Ben Kwok. I found it in the book Eenvoudig tekenen by Chris Hart. I used Papyrus, Fanz and Sproing.

Teesha Moore inspired patches 2

I’m participating in a series of swaps for Teesha Moore inspired patches. My January patch for Stephanie returned to me, but it arrived last week after a second trip to the USA. It’s embroidered with bullion knots, straight stitches and running stitches.
And this is the pretty patch I received in the January swap. It’s made for me by Monica. I just love the wonky edge!

Page 54 and 59

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.
