On monday I showed you my new book, Babel. In the meantime I have been to a local fleamarket and found a handwoven white tablecloth with blocks in them. I haven't been able to photograph it in such a way that you can see these blocks, so you have to take my word for it. When I saw it, I immediately thought about Babel and my old desire to make a quilt. So I am totally excited to announce a new project, which is very large. (The tablecloth is 1 m. and 20 cm by 1 m. 40.) The name for it is: Soul Food and it is gonna be an embroidery painting. Have assembled all kinds of woollen felt and every string of blue and pink I could find in my stash to embroider with it.
My working box is ready and I bought a lovely pink journal especially for the notes concerning this project. So the coming weeks I will be working on Soul Food and keep you up-to-date with it. Hope you will enjoy this process just as much as I already am.
Have a lovely day,
