I am surely no Eve and Apple is quite frank not my favourite type of fruit but for some reason, apples are a source of inspiration for me.
Apple, the original sinful fruit….. I don’t know about that story but it’s interesting.
At the moment I am working on an apple inspired Romanian Point Lace design. I skipped the mood board this time coz everything was so clear in my mind.
But first things first! “Make some cord, lady!” I said to myself.
Wait I am such a liar, I do eat apples, but only one type “red delicious”! I call red delicious the “Snow White Apple” ….. My hubby always makes fun of it.
Are you picky with your apples as well? If yes, what apple do you like?
Ok back to my cord! Like I said you need cord, not as much this time since I create a small project for the Crochet Retreat where I will be teaching next year!
So if you are next year in May not busy and need a crafty holiday, I hope to see you there my dear American friends!
I created a few metres of the simple cord, in a shiny cream colour thread. The thread is a silky microfibre that feels great. The hook that I worked with was 1mm. I sketched a simple design down on calico and now it;s time to start!
By the way I love to work with this type of thread. Microfibre is wonderful, soft and strong at the same time, shiny and glossy with a gorgeous end result. A true jewel in the thread world.
The Romanian Point Lace design can be used as a coaster or can be framed in a gorgeous frame! It would make a truly beautiful and unique gift. I would love to take this apple lace design to the next level and introduce into the point lace weaving embroidery. I am still not sure if I use a deep red or go for a green thread for the apple!
A long time ago I was actually inspired by apples again, as I was illustrating Candy Apple by Donna Karan. The Orignal Sin was the main inspiration for the print.
A simple apple can lead you to a vast collection of ideas…. If you are interested in pre-ordering this print, please email me or leave a comment! At the moment they are not in the shop available not here and not on Etsy – LorenasInkDesigns
PS: I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving!
