My new hobby - drawing

I didnot blog for a while. There were no idea, what to talk about. When I created this blog, I wanted to share my knitting and sewing, but in last time I sew or knit only little. My new hobby is drawing. Nothing great, still learning, but anyway I want to show something. I like abstract paintings and ornaments, what you can see on my picture.

Colours on this bracelets are in same order like in box of colorful pencils: yellow, orange, red, violet, blu, green. It is good idea for beginners, because it helps to keep correct order of threads and avoid crossing them.

Sashiko and Susan Briscoe

Some years ago I have heard about sashiko. And found out blog of Susan Briscoe (I think she is number 1 in sashiko in UK). Her book on sashiko is full of beautiful patterns. Sashiko is old, but patterns looks very modern.
On 4. Prague Patchwork Meeting I met with Susan and it was very nice meeting. I have been on her sashiko workshop, because I donot think that book can learn as good as teacher. She is not only expert, she is nice person. I recommend to visit her blog and her website.
On picture we are on evening party on the boat. You can see Susan, Valeria from Ukraina, another great person. Then my niece Karolina, she has ten years and she has some wxperience with knitting, crocheting and patchwork too. And thanks to Susan she knows, what is sashiko.
