Fallen Angel

Some people were asking me , why I never enter the weekly stamping and mixed media challenges ... I don't know what's wrong , but every time when i say to myself .... tomorrow I am gonna make something for one of the challenges .... then my muse is telling me to make something different ...LOL..

For this card I used Ranger's alcoholink for the spin and splash , the man stamp is from Non Sequitor , Wings stamp unknown and that round "thing" is from StampinBack stamps ...
Yes I know that round thing isn't exactly in the middle , but I was too lazy to use my stamping ruler !:-)

Thanks for looking,
hugs, Patti

A new Challenge / Turkisch folk socks

First of all I want to thank you all for the supportive comments on my moving !! I really can use them , OMG, I didn't know i have such a mountains of stash , i don't know where to begin with packing !! :-) But on the other side , i can't wait to get my very own craftroom ......woohoo !!!

Yes, i want to learn to knit socks . the sockvirus got me too !:-) I know how to knit, but I never knitted a real sock before , but I take the challenge !!!

A long time ago I knitted those Turkish socks , they are easy and fun to make ! I also used them for folkdancing , but it is such a long time ago that even I forgot how to knit them... LOL..

While (folk)dancing you wear those socks with handmade leather shoes , very comfortable .

For the moment I can't find my old folkdance shoes , so I stole a pic from a magazine in which my Turkish socks were published ..... The pic is from the magazine , but it still are my feet :-))

(the magazine in which they published my turkish knitting is Handwerken zonder grenzen , issue # 5/1989 )

Thanks for looking,

Stitch 'n Bitch and moving

Hiya all ,

Yesterday I went to my first Stitch 'n Bitch meeting and I really had a great time ... finally i was in the middle of very kind people who shared the same intrest and who didn't say that knitting is something for old people !! I saw the most yummie yarns and beautiful knittings ... For dure I go again , next week !!!

They offered us a new appartment , a lot bigger and better then we have now , so we accepted ! This means that the next weeks I won't be blogging as much , because I have to sort out all my mess , to pack it .. lots of cleaning and you know all that kinda stuff ..

Thanks for looking .

Hi everyone !! Today i was messing around in my stash again and found a Hardanger Ufo , I completely forgot I ever started it , LOL !! I am (was) making it on 32 count linen with caron's Wildflowers and DMC perle cotton #12 , maybe one of these days i am gonna work on it again .. I also found another one on 40 count .... but I think even with glasses i don't see it anymore ... blah... aging :-(

I learned Hardanger all by myself with the books from Janice Love ... In my eyes she is the best teacher for Hardanger !!!

I also found those 2 doilies .... don't know if I am ever gonna use them ... The yellow one is made on soft yellow 32 Belfast linen with Caron's Wildflowers and Waterlilies ....

This blue one is also made on 32 count Belfast with DMC perle cotton #8 and Caron's Waterlilies ... I really think soon i am going to do some Hardangerstitching again ......

Thanks for looking, hugs, Patti

Hiya everybody , Thanks again for all your kind comments on my previous posts...

Too hot to knit or stitch again here , so i made a few cards... On this one , I embossed the stamp print and colored it with Twinkling H2O ....

For this one I used a Spin & Splash background made with alcoholink ( spin & splash is a children's toy ) , I did some gold embossing , stamped the dragonflies and quote , the nude lady I stamped on a separate piece of paper, cut it out and glued it on the card ...

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend !!
hugs, Patti
