This is my last scarf of 2015.
I wanted to try this technique for a while
and I felt this was the right time and customer to make it for.
I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas
and I'm wishing you all the best for 2016.

From today on you can browse my new website
My site is divided in two parts: my weaving and my prints.
The weaving part is visible,
my flat-surface pattern designs are protected in a login area.
I will keep using this blog as my personal space,
my 'what's going on space'
my 'what I like space'
Many thanks to
for making it happen...

This was a very special request.
A man is turning 80 and his family wanted to give him a handwoven scarf.
They came over for a visit (with the man of 79).
He told me he didn't like dark colours
and he also preferred more calm motifs,
instead of me changing colour and design all the time.
He tried on this scarf:
and the colours were just perfect.
I tried to translate it in wool and this is the result.
It's a very big man so it's a very big scarf.
This weekend it will be handed over,
I hope he likes it...

I am participating the "Week van de Smaak / Tafel 24" with my recyclable placemats.
This is the third time I am weaving them and still with much pleasure,
I like the graphic suprises of the newspaper strips
and ofcourse the pleasure of weaving with beautiful linen.
You can find all information here:
+ check the work of http://gridjunky.tumblr.com/
Also about recycling materials, but in a very modern way.

It's linen, it's woven and I'm putting it in a frame.
Very curious about the result.
It's not a scarf, but what is it then? :-)
+ Check this article, about Snow Fabric in Japan:
“It is in the snow that the thread is spun,
and in the snow that the weave is woven.
It is the snow that washes and bleaches the fabric.
Everything begins and ends in the snow.
Chijimi fabric only exists because of snow:
we may say that snow is the mother of Chijimi.”
+ the video...
++ And there are still some towels in the shop!

This is the first time I made a scarf that isn't for summer or winter.
Something in between: very light, it has some wool in it, some linen and some silk.
It seems I am more and more become the weaver of birthday scarves.
This one is from a son for a mom.
I'm curious about her reaction...
Here a nice project to share, Soundweaving

The coffeebar Clouds In My Coffee in Ghent
is opening a Bed&Breakfast very soon.
They needed some curtains and asked me to make a design
and my boyfriend Jeffrey is making them a cloudy sofa!
It's going to be a beautifull space
and I hope to share pictures very soon.
