Yes!! I am soo happy my last day before the vacation is here. I just got home, had dinner and thought this would be a perfect moment to update my blog. No I am not forgetting you, my dear blogreaders... 2 weeks off from now, Jippy!!
I am sad to tell due to visa application delay, Vasudevan cannot make it to my place before May7th... But if he gets his SchengenVisa, we will immediately set up new dates. Now thinking of May 10th 10 mei, Monday eve May 13th, Tuesday eve May 14 th , Wednesday eve May 15th, Friday June 7th , Saturday 8th Sunday 9th plus some dates at the end of June and first week of Summervacation in July
So let me know what date you preferr and what you would like to learn or do.
The next thing I'll be focussing on is the artfair in Sittard upcoming Tuesday April 30th, On our last Queensday. Got a great idea to make, not sure if I have enoug time to make a lot of them but let me see.
Enjoy the springtime it is really amazing this year as winter stayed so long!!!
Meanwhile I am also busy with the next exhibition Vasudevan and me will participate: An exhibition with felting workshops ...
In Kanne, Belgium, from May 9th , May 11th and 12th. Would be nice to meet you there!!
A good thing about being sick is you have plenty of time to think of new ideas. It was like making a mind map: what do I have for materials and what can i do with it? Can i try and make something new with it? Combine techniques?
And this is what came out so far. The felt I had already made months ago, so I was able to start working on it when i felt less sick. I'll not showing you the complete piece yet. It will be exposed at a group exhibition in Kanne (B) from May 8th till May 12th
Plus I have run out of these ribbons so need to order some new ones.
On Sunday 20th of Jan it was finally The day!! The day the whole village knew whom the new yought prince, prinsess and adjudant are for this years carnaval season. We already knew since dec 17th and it was very diffycult to not tell anyone. a week before we met the other parents of the prince and adjudant. Ohh boy were we excited that Sunday. Here that special moment of reveiling whom the new kids were.
Adjudant Stan, Princess Meg and Prince Bas the third
with the adult prince and princess
after getting all their decorations :
the prince his special hat and scepter
the princes her small crown and flowers to wear at her wrist
the adjudant his hat and wooden stick
it was time to get the parents on stage and honour them with a medal and red shawl.
A sisters chat: "why didn't you tell me something before??? "

The third color I dyed with is RED in a few weeks time we will be having Carnaval to celebrate. The colors going with these festivities are red - yellow and green. And this year I wanted to do something else with this theme and my windowsil.
De derde kleur waarmee ik wilde verven was ROOD. Over een paar weken is het weer zover dan is het weer carnaval. De bijpassende kleuren zijn dan rood-geel en groen. Dit jaar wilde ik eens wat anders doen met dat thema als raamversiering. Niet weer met alleen ballonnen, maar iets wat bij mij past.
Before dyeing................. / voor het verven
In the dyebath. / In het verfbad
When it came out and was rinsed / na het uispoelen zag het er zo uit....
How will it be?? / Hoe zal het geworden zijn.... ???
Big glass balls and wooden rings were used for this / grote glazen knikkers en houten ringen heb ik hier gebruikt
Nice effect isn't it? / Leuk effect niet?
A sneak previeuw more in my next and last blog about this dyeing
Een tipje van de sluier....., meer in mijn volgende blog over het verven...
