Last weekend I bought a nice crochet-book. It has beautiful pictures, and a lot of new stitches. I like to try out new patterns and colors. I always crochet on my way to work on the metro. But it seems that it’s really rare, because the people often look at me like I’m an alien. Hopefully I convince them to start crocheting again.
For already a long time I’m dreaming of crocheting a cardigan, so at the moment I’m trying out different patterns and colors. And soon I’ll decide what I love the most. I’ll keep you posted about my creation process.
I also start to make stamps. It’s my first try, so it’s not perfect. But I like doing it.
And I finally started a new sketch-book (something that I wanted to do for 2 years), with little drawings to make textile patterns. Maybe later they will transform in silk scarfs … who knows ?
Until soon !
Just 2 weeks, and then I’ll have to do my end-presentation about my textile designs. I’m so excited, and a little nervous at the same time, because I worked for 2 years on this project. So I hope the textile-experts will understand my story.
We also exhibit our work, the openings event is on the 27th of June, at De Bijloke in Ghent (More information). And it runs till the 1th of July. You are all welcome !
The first picture is by Eefje De Coninck.
The photoshoot today was a great succes, thanks to the lovely photographer, Eefje. The beautiful and inspiring models Maud and Marie. And Robbert’s beautiful home. I’m so very happy about it. Next saturday I’ll see the results, because Eefje still use films. So it take a little while to develop. I almost can’t wait to see the results.
I’m making a collection of woven blankets. I really love to play with colours and very soft yarns. At the moment I made 5 big pieces, but I still need to do the last finishing touches. So exciting.
On saturday Eefje will take beautiful pictures of my work, at Robbert’s place. I’m a little nervous, but I’m convinced that it will be great. Look forward to saturday. But it also mean that I have a deadline to catch, so this week will be all about early mornings and late-night-atelier-time.
Happy week !
Last week was filled with lovely things.
First of all, I was intrigued by windows. Like in picture 3, it’s a window in the port of Ghent, It felt so surreal to look into a window, and see such a wondeful view.
Next to that I’m working with different textile-companies to make some of my designs. Yesterday I was making yarns, that’s so much fun ! I also did some industrial weaving and lasercutting. The pictures you see are still ‘work in progress’, so they need some finishing touches. But the 27th of June will be the opening of the exhibition, and that will be the first moment that my work will showed to the public. Feel free to come. More information about it later.
Working, working, working, … with sometimes a nice coffeebreak. Spring is in the air, my plant start to get flowers. And that make me so happy. I also have 3 new baby pilea, from my neighbour. Hope they will trasform into big plants.
And some lovely news, in October I’ll move to paris for 5 months to do an internship. Do someone knows a place where I can live ? or do you know someone who has room for free in his/her house ?
Enjoy this sun(ny)day
Wish you all a happy Easter. I hope you all enjoy your day.
Today I ate a lot of chocolate eggs, the one on the pictures are really delicious. While I’m having a chocolate-overdose I’m making samples with my tufting tool, and it’s working better than I even dare to dream of. So I’m very happy !!
