I already had this on my weblog a few weaks ago, I changed it a bit and now it is back. It was a 'quilten speciaal' assignment: we had to transform stripes with machine quilting and/or embroidery. Because I didn't have any stripes, I made my own with paperlamination and altered it.

This one I made in 2008 when I did not have a weblog. Because I am very bussy making a new quilt right now and because I may not show it yet -I want to submit it for a show -I'll show this one instead. I made it for a friend who is an acupuncturist. It is hanging in her practise.
This drawing is me. It is a drawing made by Paulien at the age of 5.
Since 2002 me and my partner are surrounded by dyes, paints, fabrics and ... you name it, it's there. I hope one day I can have the livingroom to be my studio...
This reflects the importance of something which began as a hobby but now has gone totally out of hand.
I work 30+ hours in 3+ long days and not think one second of surface design, but when I am driving home it pops up and won't disappear even when I am asleep.
This is the story of a textile addict.
