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.

March

A little snow... then some sunshine and even springtime temperatures for a couple of days...
Today, it is cold again and windy, and we even got a few snowflakes this morning...

I think I'm done with my series "Incertitude".
Here are numbers 2 to 6...
I'll take a better picture as soon as we get some sunshine.

As I still have got a lot of these printed faces, and I'm not yet completely tired of them, I'm going to try and work a little more with them.
But I definitely need a change in colour scheme, and I also want to use the indigo fabrics I dyed before the winter.
Here's how my design board looks at the moment...

February

The sun came out today. So maybe it is time to take the blog (and myself) out of hibernation.
I spent most of my free time this winter sketching, still having fun with the selfies and other exercises.
I'm also studying  Japanese again.

Last week, I finished another little quilt in the "Incertitude" series.
And this is how my design wall looks today...
The plan is to make a fifth quilt using the printed face on the right.

I had the next mosaic ready some time ago, but apparently, I forgot to post it...
... and the next picture too...
