blue skies turning grey






 yesterday snow and cold and winter in the land, today most of the white stuff has disappeared and temperature feels kind of like spring might be on it's way, as long as the sun shines....we've had wet snow, drifting by in swirls leaving no lasting impression, Dutch winters these past years don't quite happen
at least the studio is cosy and warm, snug with the wooden walls; i'm sketching with fabric, long drawings, landscape impressions, glimpses of blue moons - thanks to Jude - the beautiful squares are from Julie, i have so much to be grateful for.....






i thought of folding this one and now rather like it as is, the shape reminding me of a skirt, so that'll be it's title 'the half skirt'; still needs a backing for the left part plus want to integrate the right part more with the blue silk

What could be a better antidote to winter than a cup of something hot and beautiful fabrics on the table? Happy January.

We too had a bit of spring after a lot of snow and now our skies have turned too...I love your workings with cloth, your warm studio and thanks for the song :-->

did you notice me? i sat quietly in a chair at the right of the table,
just taking it all in, just so happy to be in your Space, watching,
listening,...i think you talk to yourself sometimes, ?

i LOVE coming to your house

I sent you squares ??? I remember sending Ducks, Chickens and a few Turkeys, but no squares. Did I send my journal to you, because I cant find it anywhere.

I agree with Grace, this studio just seduces me.

The trees reflected in still water ... and then echoed in cloth

These winter scenes of tree shapes and cloth...wonderful! I love, always, how you bring your world into your cloth work and studio world. Just the best. I zoomed in on each photo and took a walk around...I bet you sensed me, ghost-like and absorbing all the vibes here. Your place is like no other, the "home" of it alone captures my heart.

home is where my heart is, great photo of you over on facebook, am very happy so many of you decided to march! taking action is way better than remaining sad, frustrated etc! you rock Nancy
