a kiwi thursday and all things hidden...

see any similarities between me and this kiwi... nope?

well what about now... yep, i too have been stripped...

but check out these eyes ... that little boy at the market who said i was a safe dog cos i couldn't see him wouldn't be so cocky now would he!

bit itchy though

oh and would that happen to be a kiwi stripe on this duvet b?

hey and aint this kiwi coloured plate meant to have foodibles on it?...

even a wee bit of something...

maybe the goodies are hiding under the plate...

hey b while she's distracted see what i got for her birthday on the 6th of september...

it's bound to drive her nuts arf arf

it bounces real wierd...

its kiwi coloured too b

doyle... whatcha got there doyle...

nothing mollie... quick b hide it....

c'mon doyle i know you're hiding something from me... is it a whatchamecallit?

oh pleeeeeze b & c tell me what he's got...

i love your squares i truely do even the kiwi coloured ones, oh and i didn't eat the big cushions on the chairs in the lounge promise...

but wait there's more...

yesterday we found out blue was hoping to play burgundy this week, we thought well why the heck not... so im off to hunt whatevers in doyles hiddy places... over to you b, oh crafty one arf arf...

jeez mollie we know you are soon to be one but arn't you getting a wee bit big for your fur dear girl...

i've always been a fan of the bauhaus movement, in fact this very much loved book was given to me by my parents years ago and was a huge inspiration to me during my art school days...

since my newfound crochet 'binge'... (lets hope not) i keep getting that niggley feeling that the granny squares remind me of something...

then it dawned on me… itten, johannes itten's color contrasts, yes...

feel familiar?

it was this realisation that got me exploring other bauhaus genius's, and soon i was discovering inspiration that may have to lead to other crafty based projects, i mean…

let's not forget josef albers...

and his homage to a square...

or wassily kandinsky...


seeing it?

oh and alber's wife anni...

needle or hook?

getting it?

needle...

hook...

with a palette like this who could fail?

oh and next week at blue's coloured thursday it is white...

Wow, I'm out of breath from rushing to see everything. Lots of fun pics! I think you do favor that dude in the boo-kini. I love the comparison between the art and crochet. Never thought of it like that, but it sure works!

aw look at her BIG eyes! how cute does she look!
You're doing so well with the crocheting - maybe when you're up at sort of christmas you could give me a lesson? xx

Blue said...

You're such a heart breaker with those eyes Mollie.
And Doyle, that's a great Kiwi pressie for her.

Loved all the art - great comparisions between the pictures & the crochet - use to make the squares myself but never tried the circles.
Thanks for indulginging me re Burgundy, even if I ended up posting just for KIWI! - LOL!

Love, pats & pets
