Mostly cottons, and I like bright colored textiles.
Where did you learn your textile skills?
From books, friends, courses and trying myself. Since I was little I was always making things with fabric, with wool, I embroidered, sew clothes, knitted, crocheted, I made drawings such as mandala's, I painted fabric etc. etc. and when I started to quilt, all of these skills came together.
Let us know you are not a spammer. Is there anything else you want to say to introduce yourself to the group?
I like cooking too. And I would like to mention that I've started a training from City and Guilds (UK) online, to get a certificate in machine embroidery. 12 modules, I've finished 5 now. Very nice to do, I learn a lot with this training.
Hihihi, ik had het ook helemaal niet door! Wat een leuke dingen maak jij en je blog is helemaal leuk. En niet alleen rode katers zijn zo... Wij hebben twee zwart-witte en die zijn minstens net zo erg. Weet je trouwens hoe je je blog op deze pagina krijgt? Ergens links staat een RSS-feed. Daar vul je het adres van je blog in en dan kun je nog kiezen hoeveel er hier te zien is. Vervolgens kun je het geheel dan naar het midden van je pagina slepen en dan is je blog goed te zien.
Thank you for your nice comments on the completion of my TAST-2012 sampler! It has been a busy few weeks for me with lots of teaching and a knitting and stitching show. This week will see a lot of catching up and some creation of new ideas for future courses and workshops.
Mieke, your work is varied and lovely. Your quilts are extraordinary and your embroidery and felting have such a different feel. I love the way you have used your machine embroidery stitches to make the little foot book.
Meike, thank you for inviting me to be a friend on Stitching Fingers. I had forgotten that I had signed up here until today when I received an email notice. I must bookmark the site and come back often!
Happy Christmas to you!
