to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

clearing ... trying to

It is too cold to be working in the big studio - anyway, my inspiration is very low. But I do have another studio which is rarely used, and that is the sewing room. It contains tons of material gathered during more than 30 years. Since my quilting days are gone a lifetime ago I'm sure most of them won't be used anymore. I already gave a lot away, but these tiny scraps from cherished bits and pieces ...
It must be the crocheting artist-painter, a few posts ago, that gave me the appetite to dig into this Ali Baba cave again.

And yes, ... I ripped countless metres of fabrics and started to knit a scarf ...

... After a considerable length I knew I did not like the stitch I was using, so ...

... I pulled the whole thing back to zero ...


... I like this much better.
result : a 2 metres long scarf, a lot of material cleared, and maybe some new ideas

When it's too cold, the cookingstudio is also a nice place to be in , here we then make paella from bits and pieces...
Just an idea to go from studio to studio.
