flowers.



Unfinished embroiderie on silk; the colours remind
me a bit of those of my new dress. A bit...
I've done this type of embroiderie a lot, always using a messed up
silkpainting as startingpoint.
recycling, you know :^)



... upcycling, thanks monica :)

New dress :^)









I bought a new dress last weekend;
there's also a belt in the same fabric, but I think that's a bit
too much, maybe the one on the picture is ok, just need to
find the other half... somewhere :^)
The shadows on picture 1&3 come from my geranium; I think
a dress with a print like that would be nice, almost a landscape.


Wintertime!

Gardening.









What a gorgeous weather it was today!
Made a selfportrait in a pool and harvested three Roma's
and one Santalina tomato :^)
The delicate white flower in the second pic is a
Siberian Edelweiss, I bought it last weekend.

Have a nice weekend!

Yesterday...





... in my mail, some photos from the afternoon tea reception
at Mr Kitly; I wish I could be there too, if only for those blue
biscuits :^)
Photo made by Dell, see more at DENIM.






and
went to the garden center in the afternoon to buy some
evergreens and to take pictures of the maples in the garden.



Lots of oak leaves and falling acorns,
and a huge super macho tree fern!
nice!

(I will show you my purchases in another post :^)

Something sunny, 3.







The front of this nice vest is woven with the leftovers of the
crocheted parts, love it.
and the beach robe too :)



What you can do with leftovers in case they're long enough:
a smyrna cushion,
and do you remember this post?




Babyboom at Atelier Solarshop started today!




Sweet dreams :^)

A mixed lot, part 6





I'm again digging up some photos from my archive:

drinking beer and eating apples and plums with a friend,
a mobile,
the mimosa in bloom and
baby fungus in the woods

Something sunny, 2.











I never get bored of taking pictures when the sun pops in,
and I never get bored of trying out another color combination;
this one you've already seen here.
More cushions to come :)

My bedroom.



I'm very into soft pinks and nudes lately and...



this is my favourite blouse and...



this my favourite scarf
and..
I really need to clear out the bedroom, later maybe :^)
My wardrobe some time ago.



Issue 3 of Making Do is about
creating a new planet.
I've bought mine in Brussels, but you can order the zine here.
There's also this funny video.



Dark Moon mobile.

Thank you all for the sweet words on my previous post :)

Something soft.







New cushion in greys, soft greens, coral and raspberry pink;
the photo in the first picture comes from Ana.
More works and photographs from Ana here.

The second picture is a remnant of the photoshoot I did
a few days ago, and the photo of the thistle fluffs below date
from here...
that's recycling too :)



Sweet dreams :)
