welcome Jasmijn...maybe it's because I only have boys but when I can make something for a girl it turns out very sweet (this time literally with the icecreams)

asian fabrics

almost forgot...but I've managed to score some very nice fabrics in KL. By coincidence I ran into a lovely fabric store in the middle of hectic Kuala Lumpur.

Of course we had a lot of laundry after our four week holiday, but my parents made this pile even bigger because they bought more and more embroideries in France (I think they made a hobby out of it, scouting all the markets). It was so much work, but in the end I just loved how they looked hanging to dry.

last week I did a workshop at zijdelings with Anne, we had a great time, but I'm not sure if it suits me. we worked with synthetic fabrics and dye. Afterwards we visited a very nice exhibition in Eindhoven, meesterlijk. I loved the lamps they are from wonderable.

during our trip the chinese celebrated the moonfestival (also called the mid-autumn festival). Michael and Christina, the chinese couple were we stayed at that time in Kuala Lumpur were so hospitable to invite us to celebrate this festival with them...the icing on the cake in our holiday! Michael and Christina, thanks for this lovely experience!

islamic art

in our holiday I made one special trip with Jilles in Kuala Lumpur. Because Stije was a little bit ill Roel stayed with him in the guesthouse. we visited the islamic art museum, just the two of us. It was a beautiful museum and we had a great time.

back on track

I didn't tell you but we were away for almost four weeks...we have been discovering singapore and malaysia with the four of use. We had a great time and it gave me a lot of inspiration...so the sewing and felting can start ;-)))

coaster to lunchbag

Because I only had one of these (oil cloth) coasters. I decided to give it a make over...it became a lunchbag!

little experiment

I was curious how it turned out if I made a garland from felt, the same way they make paper garlands...I really love the result, but it's so much work and I don't know what to do with the result...maybe nice to attach some bells and decorate a pram??
