Quirky Dutch Summer Guest Blogger ~ Rag book story telling

Hello creative friends,

I'm delighted to be part of the Quirky Dutch Summer this year.
Hosted by it's founder the marvellously talented Marit Barentsen

QDS is a 10 week Summer project where creatives around
the world come together to share their artistic journey.

Today it's my turn to share a project..

Bringing childhood memories to life with cloth and stitches you
can find me over here @ QUIRKY DUTCH SUMMER ~ #9 GUEST: TRACEY

I do hope you can join us..
There is so much more to see @ QDS than little me!!

Thank you sweet Marit for giving me this opportunity
and many thanks to all the QDS Artists for their 
inspirational creations this QUIRKY DUTCH SUMMER

Creative Hugs

  4. Wow, what a stunning make! I'm always in awe of your creativity with cloth and stitches - amazing ๐Ÿ˜. I hope you had a lovely weekend and wishing you a wonderful week! Hugs, Jo x
    p.s. sorry I haven't been visiting! I managed to bash my nose on a door handle over the weekend, my nose is not broken but I now have 2 black eyes developing. My nose is also swollen and bruised so I can't wear my reading glasses which makes it very hard to blog as I can't ๐Ÿ˜‰. I'll try and get back up to date with your fabulous posts soon. Hugs, Jo x

  5. That's gorgeous Tracey! Congratulations! Xxx

  6. Wow Tracey this is stunning! You always work such magic with your threads and fabrics. I really don't know how you think to do this never mind actually create it. Congratulations on being a guest designer, and have a very happy week x

  7. Thank you for the step by step on your unique and personal rag doll book (over on the blog) x. The texture and fun elements are stunning x. So many memories for you and one very special creations. One very talented and creative lady x.
    Many congratulations on guesting.
    I too wish I could own one of those beach huts x

  8. Tracey, I have been over for a very long look! I have always been in awe of your talent but you have notched it up again with this incredible project. I had a rag doll as a child, now I think I need a rag book in my life too. As always, thank you so much for your inspiration! Hugs, Anne xx

    PS, it has always been my dream to own a beach hut, oh, and a camper van too!

  9. Beachy beautiful hair, gleaming in the summer sun! What a wonderful project...a rag book...I love it <3

  10. I was here earlier, then had to leave to vote. Met some friends and talked too long, so now I'm in serious catch-up mode. First, I LOVE what you made for the QDS. I am a BIG fan of Marit's too. I am so glad she invited you to share your incredible talent this year. I also followed you to More Mixed Media and joined in for the first time there, too. So I have double to thank you for. But of course, you know I'm also here for Gill's theme this month at Art Journal Journey. Thanks for joining us again, dear Tracey.
