MY BLUE WOVEN SHOES





For those who remember, 
Yesterday they arrived, 
my electric blue shoes.
I must say they want me to do this more,
maybe another pair? 
:-)

3 DAYS IN LONDON

 The cut-outs of Henri Matisse at Tate Modern.

Buying new materials and colours, my favourite kind of shopping...

British Folk Art at Tate Gallery.

Kew Gardens!

Radical Geometry at The Royal Academy. Small exhibition, but very inspiring...

  The handwoven works of Brent Wadden at the Saatchi Gallery. 

Now back home for rearranging my workspace,
gardening, cooking, eating, drinking,
weaving, reading,
helping Jeffrey with his furniture
and ofcourse enjoying the sun...

READY FOR A WHILE







I must admit,
I wanted this one myself...
But it's delivered to one happy birthday girl.
She was the inspiration for the colours and the graphics,
so she deserves it!

Vacation has started,
but it hasn't been all fun and sun.
We had to say goodbye to our cat Roschka.
Roschka was 16 years old,
15 years long she was here at our home.
So strange how one can miss such little creature so much.
It feels like there's too much space in the house...

FALL IN SUMMER






I was ready in time for this 50th birthday.
Colours that will suit fall and winter,
and now even summer,
as it's very rainy and cold here in Belgium.
I hope the sun is coming back from next week,
then my holidays start.
+ This weekend I want to finish this project. 
+ This holiday will be one of new projects and thinking of the future,
one month of thinking... :-)

Have a happy weekend!

RED HOT




Again a birthday scarf!
There's a lady turning 50
and her husband asked me to make her a scarf.
She has choosen very warm colours,
now it's up to me to weave and combine everything...
So more about this red hot scarf in the near future!

MY KIND OF BLUE





My shoe fabric is ready, it's in the mail to the shoe man,
and now I'm waiting for september to come...
This is my kind of blue,
vibrant but also quiet,
here and there a little dash of something else (red, brown, black and pink...),
but not too much.
The shoe fabric is made of linen, horse hair, silk and wool.

I'M WEAVING SHOES




This time it's for me.
I'm weaving a fabric for shoes.
Above they are in leather,
but mine will have my own woven (very) blue fabric.
This man is making them for me,
happy I have found him. :-)
