Blog break

I’m still here, but there’s no time to blog. So I decided to announce a blog break. 

In the meantime you can follow me on Facebook or Instagram, where I will share my work if time allows me to be creative. I hope to be back in a couple of weeks.

Randje per week: my own additions

After finishing the last borders for Randje per week 2015 I had one more page to stitch. I finished it before I started on the Australia sampler, but I still had to share it here. These are the last borders on page 12. The tulip border came from a DMC border sampler, the others are my own design.
And this is the complete page, it’s the last one for my fabric book.

365somethings2018

In January I started a new challenge: 365somethings2018. For me this is playing with paint, markers, pencils, (hand carved) stamps, clippings, etc on paper. This can be collaging in an altered book, drawing on index cards, doodling or drawing in a Moleskine, painting on watercolour paper, etc. I also hope to participate in the zentangle challenges at I am the Diva from time to time. Sometimes I’ll share a few of my 365somethings2018 here, but you can follow my challenge on my Facebook blog or Instagram. These are a few examples of the last weeks.

I used the tangles Sonia and Huggins.

Turtle

No time to blog, so all I have to share is the close-up of this tiny crocheted turtle.
I forgot to add it to this post.

Australia sampler

Years ago my mother started this Australia sampler for my father. She got a poor eyesight over the years, so now I’m going to finish it for my parents. I share an update from time to time to keep me going.

I finished this floral part on the sampler. There are 5 more items to stitch.
And this is how my sampler looks now. There are bigger/better photos at my Facebook blog.

It’s a Teesha Rainbow - BLUE

I participated in a series of swaps for Teesha Moore inspired patches with a rainbow colour. This was my last swap for this series. I sent these patches to Paula. It's a pity they didn’t arrive!
My first set of patches for Paula.
A Dutch patch with beads.
A patch with a crocheted turtle and feather stitch.
A closer look at the crocheted turtle.
So I made a new set for her, I’m glad they arrived safely.
My second set of patches for Paula.
An embroidered patch with bullion knots,
sheaf stitch and herringbone stitch.
A patch with buttons and cross stitches.

Australia sampler

Years ago my mother started this Australia sampler for my father. She got a poor eyesight over the years, so now I’m going to finish it for my parents. I share an update from time to time to keep me going. Yesterday I finally finished these rocks.
And this is how my sampler looks now. There are bigger/better photos at my Facebook blog.
