Sketching and Japan

Here are a few more pictures taken in Japan last autumn...
I'm spending most of my free time sketching these days. I took a class at Sketchbook Skool recently. It was all about drawing people and it was a lot of fun.
I still sew from time to time. Last month, I made a fabric book for my little grandson, but it looks like I forgot to take a picture of it completed...
My quilting mojo isn't back yet, but I've pinned this on the design wall...
Who knows? Maybe I'll start making art quilts in a while.
In the meantime, I'll be sketching, and also sorting my stuff and my pictures.
Next task is to choose some photos of beautiful Kanazawa.

Housekeeping, drawing, quilts, and Japan

I've been doing some much needed housekeeping in the studio, and also in my photo files.
So, here's a mosaic of a few pictures...
Some of my textile UFOs,
my latest baby quilt, in situ,
a few pictures taken in Kyoto last year,
and a sketch I did of a ridiculously crowded street in Arashiyama.
More pictures soon...

It's winter!

We had at last a little snow, yesterday and today.
No sunshine unfortunately, and as it is already melting, I quickly went out for a walk and took a few pictures.
Btw, autumn in Japan was really beautiful!
It was the only season I had not seen there yet, and it could well be my favorite.
Here's a little mosaic...
And in other news, I am binding the piece I finished quilting in May...
Better late than never!

May

A little late, my mosaic for May...
Some very nice weather, lots of sketching, and a drawing marathon at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences in Brussels.
I started with the dinos, but as I always had a thing for monkeys, I got a bit carried away with the gorillas...
I definitely have to go back one day to sketch more dinosaures.

April

At last, a mosaic for April...
A little trip to the seaside, lots of sketching, a visit to Brussels (with very dark and very bright skies on the same day).
And I'm done with quilting the indigo-turquoise-orange quilt. Still need to finish the edges though.

Incertitude 5 and 6

Here are "Incertitude 5" and "Incertitude 6"...

"Incertitude 5" is 47cm by 47cm, and "Incertitude 6" is 17cm by 47cm.
I will update my gallery very soon.

The next top is almost ready for quilting...


I see it as a transition to another series for which I plan to use my indigo fabrics.
