Here is another Great Big Collage/ (#9, and still going strong, folks).
And, in the words of the song:
"When it's Spring again, I'll bring again
Tulips from Amsterdam.
With a heart that's true, I'll give to you
Tulips from Amsterdam.

These eager arms of mine.
Like the windmill keeps on turning,
That's how my heart keeps on yearning.…

As you know, the Sigean Standardisation Committe (SSC) has spent the last 5 years, months, days, weeks, minutes considering a possible revision to the size of ATC's , that is, at present, 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
The SSC has concluded that this size is way too small, and is recommending a larger size to be immediately adopted throughout the artistic community.
The new, revised size for ATCs is from now on 71 x 39…Continue

Would you like to adopt a Punnekin for 2015? It would get your New Year off to a very good start.
What, you might ask, is a 'Punnekin'?
Answer: the Dutch version of the French 'Tricotaine'?

It's a length of crocheted wool produced by a process that the English call 'French knitting' based on a 'Knitting Dolly'. Suus in Mokkum and…Continue
