I have been filling my sketchbook, it is very fulfilling. Emptying mind to get room for new/further ideas.

I have noticed how different fibres have different ‘hair’,  just like us, people.

tussah silk tops

merino tops

I have also filled my shelf with some new work. It’s been equally fulfilling. I am slowly mastering felting clothes – and often wonder if I am a felter or a dressmaker using felted cloth. ? Still not sure.

    • Lucie, thank you very much for your comment. Funny that you mentioned the style… I often think that I am only looking for it, not yet there…. Wishing you all the best, Monika

  1. You’ve got it!!! The LOOK!! Whatever you do is going to look great. Just do what you love to do and be surprised when you see the end result. It is a gift. I also have a book that I put my ‘samples’ in, as I try small samples of an idea I want to try and staple the piece in and make notes as to why I liked or did not like the end result and what I would or would not do something different the next time. It is too hard to remember back what you did and this is a great resource and reminder.


  2. Carole, thank you very much for your comment! I admire your ‘sample-book’-keeping :), that is something I am only learning to do now, so far I couldn’t resist to turn my ideas into finished pieces, but it is time to stop, it is very exhausting and not effective. Best wishes for your work!

  3. Dressmaker? Felter? Why agonize over details? You are an incredible fiber artist with an incredibly unique and distinctive voice that touches everything you do. Gorgeous inspirational work that amazes me every time with its simplicity, elegance and texture. Your work feeds and expresses your soul, and that is the very definition of great art.
