Parchment Fan

A warm hello from a cold Kwa-Zulu Natal! It is freezing here today and even more cold is apparently on the way for our area. Even though it was freezing here in my craft room, I forced myself to sit down and finish my set of ABC ATC's for our rubberstamp group swap. It was for the letters Q, R & S. I had a royal battle with the Q ones, but, now they are done and can be in the post tomorrow or so. Sorry, cannot show them yet! They will probably only appear here around the middle of August.

In the meantime, here is a small fan I made some time ago. The blades are only around 10 to 12cm long. But, as you can see, the final product is gorgeous, even though I have to say so myself :-) There's a whole 18 blades! Being so small, they were nice and easy to handle.
Thank you so much for your visit. Hope you like what you see!

Hope you will all have a wonderful week with plenty time to do what you enjoy most.

  2. Amando piękny i delikatny wachlarz! Super sobie poradziłaś! Skąd pochodzi wzór?

  3. Wow!! This is amazing!

  4. You really are expert at this craft and produce exquisite pieces and the fan is exceptional.
    It's so hot for us here and today it said 80F in the shade on my thermometer, we really aren't used to it. I can't imagine it being cold there as I always thought South Africa was HOT!!! When you say "freezing" do you mean below zero really freezing and icy or just cold for what you are used to?
