A special surprise

One of the many things I love about blogging is that it occasionally throws up the most unexpected of connections. Some time ago, I posted a series of photos that can be used as wallpapers on your computer. (You can find them here). Perhaps you remember my ranunculus?
I received a kind and gracious comment from Zarina in Malaysia requesting permission to use this image as a colourway for one of her range of hand-dyed threads. I enthusiastically obliged and here is the result. How. Cool. Is. That?
This amazed me. How clever is she? Zarina has carpal tunnel issues with her hands which limits her handiwork, but not so much that she couldn't create this beautiful tatting from her ranunculus thread:
You can purchase Zarina's gorgeous threads at her Etsy shop and read her blog here. It humbles my heart to see such a beautiful product inspired by an image from my Aussie garden. Thank you Zarina!

  6. Wow, that is really cool. It continues to blow me away how small blogging makes the world. It's nothing to chat with, be inspired by, or create with people all over the world. The flowers, thread and tatting are all gorgeous.
