I also found the youtube movie with Ellen DeGeneres show, and what is even more amazing, and what is even more amazing. The photos of Christina Aguilera with my hand fan, are not far from photos of Christina with Hillary Clinton. I was thrilled.

Still can’t believe this happened. It gives me so much inspiration for designing new patterns and fills my head with so many new ideas how to use crochet in todays world 🙂

Thanks Magda, for showing me this photos and thanks to Christina, for choosing my hand fan for this big TV show 🙂 And most of all thanks to all my family and friends, who believed that my homemade crocheting is something more than old fashioned doilies and can be used with joy every day now and in the future and can’t be called only granny but also modern (even though, it is inspired by lace doilies) 🙂

I have to say, that Sheila had a great idea to contrast pure whiteness of her dress with the turquoise of the sea of Bridesmaids dresses. I also have to say, that my hand fans recived a perfect background with this blue dresses 😉 I am not modest at all.. shame on me! ;))
