Winter sketching

I did a lot of sketching during the cold winter months.
This year, we had a little snow, and it was really cold for a week or so. Then, I decided it was time to clean my loom which had been collecting dust for too many months. 
And I've put the last stitches to the new baby quilt.

December

2020, the non-blogging year, is almost over. 

No travel, of course, because of the restrictions. But a lot of walking in the woods...

And also a lot of sketching...
(Chercher l'intrus...)

 And I have started a new quilt. No picture yet, as it will be a gift.

Test

This is "Passage 2", a quilt I finished last winter. I haven't done any fabric art since then.
I've been drawing, reading, cooking, gardening,... Of course, I'm still sewing sometimes, but only "useful" stuff like masks (many of them!), and a shirt.

Ok, it looks like blogger is still working... I'm going to sort my photos and see if I have anything worth posting!

Autumn 2019

Quick, a last mosaic before next year...
A small summary of this autumn...
My quilt is finished, but I haven't taken the time to photograph it. Maybe tomorrow, if it's sunny.

A new art quilt, sketching, and Kanazawa

Here are a few pictures of beautiful Kanazawa, almost a year ago...
I finally decided to try and make a new art quilt. Here are two photos I took during the quilting process. The other pictures in the mosaic are from my sketchbooks, and also from a few days at the seaside.
And here's my new quilt almost quilted. Next, I must finish the edges, and also add some embellishments.
I dyed some of the fabric myself. For the largest piece of indigo fabric, I used an old sheet I found at my parents' house. There are even a few holes in it, and I'm very tempted to leave them like that. Or maybe, I could add some stitching to emphasize them.
I also used a few pieces of indigo fabric I bought in Kanazawa last year, at Ai Life Studio, and then a piece of antique Japanese fabric bought a long time ago in Kyoto, at Gallery Kei.
