little signs of autumn are showing...it inspired me to make this felt bag with leaves. It only needs one finishing touch, the attaching of the handles, but I don't have an industrial sewing machine...will have to find one nearby.

a lot of work...

....not for me but for my parents. They are doing a lot of work in france, making tomatojuice, picking grapes and making wine, jams etc....so I made them some stickers with a stamp. I also made Thijs a stamp, he is a friend of Jilles and turned 5!

textile inspiration

Sunday I went to the last day of the "textiel bienale" in Rijswijk. I was very surprised, it was inspiring. Especially the use of materials and the combinations. silicones and textile, wool and cardboard etc..

Jilles created his first piece of art with felt. I was doing a pilot for a workshop for a little girl's birthdayparty. Jilles decided he wanted to join us and made this butterfly, with a little help of course...

more combinations

I just love combining the embroideries! And I'm a very lucky girl, because my parents just showed me at the webcam their new purchases in France...so I can continue mixing...

although we live in the city, there's enough space for green. My neighbor gave me this lovely lavender. It was in front of her house and every time I walked by the lovely smell surprised me.

little fish

Made a new design for a baby rattle, mother and little fish. I think and hope the size is just right for baby hands. Maybe I will ask my nephew Willem to do a little test.


friday I found this lovely surprise on our doormat. Because I gave Sonja from studio pardoes a pattern. Thank you, I love the fabrics.

tadaa...this is the result of my 3D felting course. I still have to figure out a good construction for the light, but most of the work is done.
