Sunday - Pastime - shibori


 I´m a great admirer of this artful textile manipulating technique!


...and I always wanted to try this !



To get that pattern I wrapped tread around jade beads...






I took the same color for both fabrics, silk and cotton, ......... a striking difference .


The cotton scarf was needled and then knotted (should have made more pics of this )











For my first experience I think it turned out well.
happy to have tried this, but it is really complex, even to make a simple pattern like this.
Here you can admire really great Shibori artworks

The "before and after" Story...(or how the oil spike causes more space for creativity!

These are my new friends! ( in magenta!)

10 kg of filler
Paint for the floor....and for the wall(no foto, just imagine 2 buckets of whitewash paint!)

We decided to say goodbye to our oil guzzling heating system and to connect to the district heating grid
and so I´m going to renovate this storage room.


But...the best is yet to come!
here you can see the 1,5m x 3m sized workroom, too small to use several tools at the same time!

totally messed up! ...but follow me through this mysterious window....

you can see a huge iron monster, the no longer used oil tank!

In the next few month we will take down the wall and then a company will dismantle the tank.

And I can see space for my metalwork and so much other crafting projects....Yippee....!!
It will become a great workroom with a heating (I didn´t have one so far), and running water (I didn´t have so far)....

but before lot´s of work!
I intend to log the ongoing process by camera
That´s all for the moment.


ending with magenta :
