felt decorations

...continuing my tradition of felted Christmas ornaments
this year I thought it was a good idea to do some recycling:
I used some scraps of coloured woollen fabric (woven by me of course!) dyed with natural dyes,
which have lovely soft pastel colours - and natural.
I cut out some simple forms: stars, hearts, leaves and dots,
then put everything in a calico bag and off in the washing machine, together with a towel or two.
Et voilà!

is definitely one of my favourite colours
- fresh from the loom -

just an ordinary day

making some order in the sideboard
and stitching the edges of some placemats
I think I already mentioned I usually help a 97 years old lady:
I prepare the warp and loom and she does the weaving - only plain weave.
So it's mainly scarves and placemats.

I wish I could get to her age and still weave, like she does.

 - cashmere and metallic thread -
I thought tension would be a nightmare but it turned out all right

Isabel Berglund

you know what they say

...that you have to be careful when you ask for something
because you might get it

well this is me - and the new/old lovely loom that I got from this lady
When I answered her advert I didn't really believe I would be the one who bought it.
(there's always someone faster than me, also on ebay)
But it happened!
It took a while to make space for it and get it going properly,
but now it's settled and weaving is really a pleasure.
thank you Jane!

in the end we did go and see this exhibition,
sadly we were not allowed any photos inside the gallery
(apart from the first one, sneaked in a moment of distraction of the attendant)
actually seeing the "Homage to the Square" series in this huge emtpy space was incredible,
I wish I could have a room like that  - just to be able to walk in every now and again and be inspired.

- I did not know that Josef Albers was a keen photographer - I love the washing lines! -

Sometimes I forget how beautiful my town can be.
One hour strolling around the centre with the camera and I got my perspective back

an exhibition on Josef Albers opened last Saturday in Modena
- I've already got a reminder on my studio door, don't want to miss this one -

...and this is what I see from my window in this very moment!
