Some blogposts ago I told you I made this book about my work,
to try to win a prize.
Every four years the Province of West-Flanders
rewards people for their work of the last four years in arts and crafts
like ceramics, paper, glass, textiles...
Together with ceramist Lut Laleman I am laureate of the competition,
meaning we get 2500 euros and a silver plaquette.
No need to say I am very very happy and very very honoured with this reward,
and also quite surprised...
It gives a big boost of confidence and a good feeling about what I am doing
and what I feel like doing in the future with my weaving.
So, I would like to thank the jury that rewarded me,
and the Province of West-Flanders for supporting the arts and crafts.
Jeffrey and I danced around the kitchen when we read the letter pictured above.
Friends gave me a crown and flowers.
I'm a happy weaver :-)

Last weekend Jeffrey had to deliver a sofa in Saint-Forget,
not that far from Paris. The sofa was for a beautiful house designed by Le Corbusier,
and the cat you see in the picture above is Jacob, living in that house,
surrounded by that beautiful garden, with the water running through it...
We had the pleasure to sleep in a cabane in the garden, also designed by mister Le Corbusier.
This is the sofa-story on Jeffreys blog:
Ofcourse we visitied the Paris, being so close.
We just walked and walked and enjoyed the sun, crepes, coffee, wine and some shopping.
At home, I just have been doing small stuff on my loom.
The piece you see above was just some leftover warp from Lilou's scarf,
and now I'm selecting colours for a summerscarf.
And again I have a question!
This summer Jeffrey and I are planning a summertrip to Finland.
Does anyone have tips for nice things to do/see there,
textile and not-textile related? :-)
We are going by car and taking our bikes for three weeks.
Hope to hear from you!

Lilou has been delivered.
Hope to get a picture of the dress and the scarf on the girl! :-)
Now I am planning some summerscarves,
just because I feel like weaving them.
And maybe fabric for a bag, for me.
Have some things in my head,
hope they come out right... :-)
Today we are off for Paris for a few days.
For work and for holiday,
you will see some pictures here next week I guess!

The garden in bloom, Jeffrey feeding the birds.
Still weaving the scarf for Lilou,
it contains quite a lot of linen, I hope I can get it soft enough,
anyone tips for making the linen feel softer?
Washing helps, but maybe there are some other methods...
