FALL IN SUMMER






I was ready in time for this 50th birthday.
Colours that will suit fall and winter,
and now even summer,
as it's very rainy and cold here in Belgium.
I hope the sun is coming back from next week,
then my holidays start.
+ This weekend I want to finish this project. 
+ This holiday will be one of new projects and thinking of the future,
one month of thinking... :-)

Have a happy weekend!

RED HOT




Again a birthday scarf!
There's a lady turning 50
and her husband asked me to make her a scarf.
She has choosen very warm colours,
now it's up to me to weave and combine everything...
So more about this red hot scarf in the near future!

MY KIND OF BLUE





My shoe fabric is ready, it's in the mail to the shoe man,
and now I'm waiting for september to come...
This is my kind of blue,
vibrant but also quiet,
here and there a little dash of something else (red, brown, black and pink...),
but not too much.
The shoe fabric is made of linen, horse hair, silk and wool.

I'M WEAVING SHOES




This time it's for me.
I'm weaving a fabric for shoes.
Above they are in leather,
but mine will have my own woven (very) blue fabric.
This man is making them for me,
happy I have found him. :-)

A LONG WEEKEND







This weekend of 4 days has given me the time to work good and slowly.
The scarf is almost finished, maybe 10 cm more to weave.
But the sun is shining,
I'm joining the cats in the garden...

SWITCH






I had to make a sudden switch from the summer scarves
to a new (secret) winter scarf,
to get it ready for a certain date...
I can't tell you more.
I'm having fun.
That's the most important thing...
:-)

GOOD AND BAD






Good: The scarf looks great  and I enjoy weaving it very much.

Bad: I'm having quite some trouble with my warp 
and the threads are breaking constantly.
I don't think I will be selling this piece
but because of this incident I'm having an idea for a future project,
using the bad for something good.

I'm finishing it anyway.
Learning from my mistakes... ;-)
