Bag fabric is finished,
but now I'm scared to use it.
That was predictable.
And I'm making a new warp,
for two (summer)scarves
I'm not making on demand,
so in a few weeks,
maybe a first one for sale.
Anyone who is interested can drop me a line!
Oh, and here you can see a little movie about Jeffrey and me:

More weft than warp.
Weaving a fabric for a bag,
a bag for me...
The boyfriend has lots of leftover leather,
so we're constructing the bag together.
If I ever finish this piece.
Strange how I always struggle with personal projects.
That's probably why I haven't made myself a scarf,
too much choice I guess... :-)
I will be weaving here if you're looking for me!

Icelandic Designer Jet Korine works with an innate sense of colour,
line and form that reflect an inner-world of defined creative thought in design.
Together they coalesce as a totally individual style
that is simultaneously bespoke, inexplicably new and undeniably hers.
Her winter 09’ collection of coats- desgined to be worn
in a variety of ways- as a blanket, a wrap, a cape,
a hooded cloak- it is made clear that Jet Korine’s work is concerned
with very high level of lateral thinking not only in the definition of a garment,
but also in the potential of a garment and ultimately the longevity of a garment;
ideas completely at odds with many current fashion trends and design.
This Collection ‘#02 Life Coat’ boldy marks her design concept
with these different motives- as the title suggests-
it is a garment designed to last a lifetime.
The materials selected for this work equally laboured over-
on one hand ‘#02 Life Coat’ is organic and beautiful-
detail all individually dyed and hand sewn,
and yet it is infinitely tough and thoroughly capable of enduring
the wear and tear of a ‘life’.

The slow scarf is finally ready!
It took a while for me to 'master' my new loom,
but I found my way of having fun with it,
and this is the first result.
Fresh, cool colours, and because of the 24 shafts,
It has been delivered and approved.
Weaving scarves on demand also means meating nice people,
so I'm glad this scarf has found a good home... :-)
