Last friday at my work, at the quiltshop, there was an Inspiration morning. The theme was magic numbers. A friend of mine maked a beautiful pillowcase of nice christmas fabrics, making use of the technique with magic numbers.
She was laying out her sewed blocks and we looked toghether what was a nice way of stitching them together. I came up whit the idea of laying them in a way so they become smooth lines.

My friend Toos was verry happy with this idea an another course member Ineke noticed that a table runner was also a nice design when you put three pillowcases toghether.

I immediatly was very excited about this idea, and the same evening I designed the table runner and figured out how much fabric I will need for the table runner and two pillowcases.The next day, when I was at work again, I bought the fabric.
Above you can see my choise of the fabrics and the first results.

I have been painting

For two weeks ago I have been painting with two friends of me. We have painted that day with acryllic paint onto aquarelle paper. First I made the background ( with the use of an old credit or phone card), you can see the original colour in the middle of the mandala. Then I draw the mandala with the five pointed star and the flowers and fill them in with another colour of paint. I gave the mandala some accents with a golden marker, and I added some more red paint surrounding the mandala.
I was so nice and fun to do!!
I hope to do it again soon.
