I'm Back....and I bring a challenge!!

Hello...hello...hello!!!!!  I know, I have been away far too long (had...and still have...a few new, serious health issues to deal with) and I promised at the beginning of 2012 there would be some new things to play with so although I'm a wee bit behind, I'll be writing again and sharing my journey through the wonderful world of parchment craft!!!

I had a lot of things "in the fire", so to speak, and they all need finishing up, so I can share them with all of you.  In the meantime, here is a little project to keep you busy :))  

Springtime Flowers Fan  


Today is the first day of Spring, so what better project than some spring flowers popping their little heads above ground!!  The inspiration for this fan came from bobbin lace, which I dearly love.  Below is a detailed view of my work.

CHALLENGE!!  WHO IS UP FOR A CHALLENGE?????   Awwwwww, come on now, I said up at the beginning that this would be a little something to keep you busy!!!!  lol

Springtime Flowers Fan Pattern
Okie dokie, here we go!!!  I LOVE CHALLENGES!!! :))  Everyone can see I chose white work as the technique for my fan.  My fan is also a full A4 size wall decoration.  The CHALLENGE is:  Download the FREE fan pattern and do whatever your heart desires from it.  When complete, either send a photo/scan back here, to me, OR some of you may find it easier to post to Facebook and I will download it from there and share it with all my wonderful blog followers right here in the Guest Gallery!!!  

Now, my challenges are not a competition so there is nothing to win.  It's simply a chance to take a break from 'other' things and take part in a self challenge using a pattern with absolutely no instructions!!!!!

Enjoy and have some fun....

Happy Parching,
