This is the first batik cloth I made. I attend the course 'Quilten Speciaal' and last saturday Els van Baarle showed us how to make our first steps with batik and wax. It was a very inspiring day. More cloth will follow soon.

Photo project 1

Marloes and I are going to make a photo (or photo's) every week. We take a theme or subject first.
Today it is about the cold weather outside. Not seldom we have some kind of a project and mostly we have forgotten about it a week later. I hope this one will last longer...
If you want to see Marloes' photo's then take a look at her weblog:

The weather was so photogenetic that I took more than a hundred photo's - and 99 did not 'pass the test'. 3 did and here they are.

Another colour

I have lots of them - these unfinished projects - waiting to be finished...
The centre is made of pieces of cotton, paper, candywraps, feathers, angelina, you name it and it's probably in there. An abaca tissue with a coloured rubbing is glued on top.
What I want to do next is to sew it and that's all (maybe). But always there will be something else to do first. Why is that?
