Well it is out fourth challenge over at Altered Eclectics and the theme is always ANYTHING GOES so the imagination can run wild with enthusiasm. This time I felt like putting something really pretty together. I made a hanger out of wire and used calico as the hanger. Then came the copious amount of doilies I have been hoarding as didn't want to use them. We all do that, don't deny it lol. I found an image on the net, printed it out and used broideries anglaise to frame it. I crocheted a long chain and edged inside the frame and then used a really old piece of lace just inside of the crochet chain.
I put together a large flower and 2 smaller flowers crocheted by me with some cotton layers. I then crocheted a fan and used pearls to give it some ummmpppphhh! I made the bow from 2 really old tiny doilies and a crochet flower on top. I adhered some oddments of old lace cut out of doilies to hang from fan. I then crocheted some leaves to dot about on the front but guess what I joined them together and turned them into a butterfly lol. I used some more pearls on the wings and wired some pearls and crystals for the feelers.
I used copious amounts of feathers on the finished project. The back of the hanging is covered in doilies but forgot to photograph it and it has now been sold so unable to do so. LOL.
Anyway I hope you like what you see. Please head on over to Altered Eclectics for this months challenge and join in or leave some love for my wonderfully talented DT.
Hugz and love to all
